What is geofencing?

Geofencing is a process of using a geofence to target mobile users. Marketers use this technology to collect information about and target their customers while they are in specific areas, known as geofences.


What is a geofence?

A geofence is a virtual perimeter marking a real geographic area. You can see it as a virtual fence. The area it surrounds can be as big as a state, or as small as one large building. Geofences can take different shapes. For more straightforward cases it could be round. For complex situations, marketers could build polygon shaped geofences.

Why can’t I see my ad?


It’s normal to want to see your GeoFencing ad, and understandably frustrating when it can’t be found! Geofencing mobile ad networks are set up to give you the most bang for your buck and have taken a lot of factors into consideration to ensure just that. Here are a few of those factors;

The Target Demographic May Not Include You

Just because you own or manage a business does not mean that you fit the target demographic. This is certainly different for each company. For example, we have tons of real estate agents running GeoFencing ads and they want to show their ad to these demographics: Active Home Buyers, People Interested in Real Estate Loans, People Interested in Mortgage Insurance, Real Estate Buyers and the Platforms will display their ad to people who fit those demographics only.

Gone are the days of placing an ad then seeing it in a newspaper. Even though you may not see your ad on a mobile phone, we provide you with a personal website that will show your current ad and up to the minute graphs and data  that show exactly when and where your ad was displayed.

You and your employees don’t need to see the ad

Geofencing is based on location. Platforms like Apple, Google and Microsoft can tell if you are in the same location day in and day out. Most likely this means that you are an employee of the business and don’t need to be shown your own ads and the platforms know this.

Your Average Daily Views

If you purchased 4,000 monthly views, your ad will be displayed between 150-200 daily, and could be displayed on any of over 8,000 apps. Increasing your exposure is easy and inexpensive.
