Geofence is a virtual boundary for a real-world geographic area. In BeLocal Pro Inc., Geofence is generated as a radius around a store or point location. Customer receives a push notification on his mobile device as soon as he enters the defined radius. Customers who receive a Geofence notification are 2.7x more likely to use app than those who don't receive one.
HOW DOES GEOFENCE WORK?
Geofencing uses GPS as well as mobile network triangulation to determine user’s mobile device position and proximity to a set Geofence point. It allows to send push messages to users' smartphones when they enter a defined geographic area, such as a retail store, stadium, shopping mall etc.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEACONS AND GEOFENCE?
Beacons broadcast tiny radio signals that can trigger certain actions in a beacon-enabled app on a mobile device. Beacons use Bluetooth Low Energy to estimate if a mobile user is within the range of its signal. This allows you to trigger your proximity campaign. Beacons are great for indoors use and when you need high precision, up to few meters.
Geofencing is less precise when it comes to proximity detection. This makes geofencing more effective for outdoor proximity campaigns that target customers on a larger area, for example when they are walking through the street or are close to the entrance of a shopping mall.
WHEN SHOULD I USE GEOFENCE?
Geofence is great for numerous business cases, one of the most valuable is increasing the number of visitors in your venue. If you want to let your customers know that there is a promotion in your venue, they can even be located 100 meters away from it, simply add a Geofence spot in Belocal Pro Inc. and create a Campaign that triggers notification "Your Comapny Name: Check out our new collection, you're only 100 meters away".
Another valid business case is that you want to make sure that people will have bluetooth turned on to receive beacon proximity campaigns indoors. You can simply create a Geofence campaign that will trigger a notification reminder "Turn on Bluetooth to receive more special offers". This significantly increases conversion rates for beacon campaigns.
Customers who receive a Geofence notification are 2.7x more likely to use app than those who don't receive one.
Geofence and Beacons complement each other, so that you can use both of them at the same time.
NEARBY MAP WITH NAVIGATION
Finding and collecting interesting offers can be troublesome, especially if you don't know where to look for them. Nearby Map allows customers to see where offers are located on a map and navigates them there. This results in increased foot traffic and sales for venues.
Returning customers spend 67% more than new ones so why not reward them for their loyalty and retain them? BeLocal Pro Loyalty Campaigns allow you to reward loyal customers with coupons for making a purchase, visiting a store or collecting a certain amount of points.
A loyalty program is an incentive that allows a retail business to create a long lasting relationship with its customers. Customers are offered product discounts, coupons, points toward merchandise or some other reward in exchange for their voluntary participation in the program. A secondary goal of a loyalty card program is to build repeat business by offering participating customers something that isn't available to non-participating customers.
Loyalty Campaigns on mobile phones are not only more convenient, they are also more effective than traditional loyalty programs with the use of plastic cards or real stamps. With BeLocal Pro you can reward customers for behavior that supports your business goals: grant them virtual points or stamps and remind them to collect their rewards after they received enough points or stamps.
LOYALTY CAMPAIGNS BOOST GROWTH
Each type of loyalty program may bring you different results, but loyalty programs have been tested time and time again, and have proven to be successful in numerous industries. Companies around the world allocate all of their energy towards growing their business and customer loyalty is one of the easiest ways to ensure this.
LOYALTY PROGRAMS ARE INEXPENSIVE
Pursuing new customers is the true cost, keeping an existing customer is 7 times less expensive than acquiring a new one (Forbes, 2013). The resources you use for a loyalty program are pale in comparison to the expense of finding new buyers. What is more, depending on the scope of your rewards program, the expenses you incur by starting a Loyalty Rewards Campaign may be overshadowed by the additional business generated as a result.
GROW YOUR REPUTATION
Loyalty programs convince new customers to stick around after purchasing your products, also they ensure that existing loyal customers feel that they are valued by your company. You not only improve customer appreciation of your business, but you also increase the chances that existing clients will share this joy with their friends and family. The more a customer feels appreciated by a business, the more he or she is likely to support that company and recommend it to others.
INCREASE SALES BY INCLUDING ATTRACTIVE AWARDS
Using a Loyalty Rewards Program in your marketing strategy will help provide you with access to a bigger portion of your customers’ spending. This will especially occur when the rewards you offer are in tune with the wants and needs of the customers. It is important to point out that not all loyalty rewards programs are the same, and only one that is executed skillfully will have the desired effect. Your rewards program could entice customers to purchase more at a given time, but only if the incentives you give out are worth it.
IT PROVIDES ESSENTIAL CUSTOMER INFORMATION
Understanding the purchasing behavior of a specific set of customers is one of the most important information available to marketers. To develop a strategic plan to present your products in a way that produces the most optimal buying behavior you need to understand what the target audience avoids as much as what triggers them to spend their money. When offering a Loyalty Rewards Program, you are conducting a form of research that will give you information about your customers. Through trial and error, you will begin to see the sort of incentives that fuel the desire of your clients, and the rewards that don’t elicit the same results. This allows you to tune in your sales strategy. By using this information, you can also attach the most interesting rewards to specific products that you are most interested in sharing with your clients.
LOYALTY PROGRAMS MAKE CUSTOMERS HAPPY
When you implement a Loyalty Rewards Program, you are sending a message to your current and future customer base that you are interested in not only making money off of purchases, but also in a relationship with customers. This act of goodwill will improve the overall outlook of your customers, which will ultimately have a positive impact on your business.
Loyalty Campaigns are effective marketing tools. They increase growth, help retain customers, and improve your brand’s reputation. And if you haven’t yet used a loyalty program in marketing strategy BeLocal Pro Loyalty Campaigns may be the best way to start one of the best and easiest tools available for the success of your business.
PUSH NOTIFICATION CAMPAIGNS
Push Notification Campaigns are a great way to stay in touch with your customers even if they are not in the range of your Beacons, WiFi or Geofence. You can send Push Notification Campaign to notify your customers about a new promotion or event even when they are not actively using the application. Notifications can be broadcasted to all customers or sent to a subset of users to give personalized information.
HOW DOES PUSH NOTIFICATION CAMPAIGN WORK?
Each proximity campaign created in BeLocal Pro can be delivered to your customers without the need to be in the range of a spot (Beacon, Wifi, Geofence). Once you create and set up your campaign there appears a button labelled "Push" in the campaigns list. Once you click it you will be asked to confirm that you want to send this campaign. After confirming the campaign is delivered within 5 minutes to all your customers or a subset of them that you defined in the campaign settings under "Target Users" section.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF PUSH NOTIFICATION CAMPAIGNS?
Not sure where to get started? Here are several examples of Push Notification Campaigns you can use, from welcoming new customers and on-boarding to nurturing your relationship with your most loyal customers:
Sending a welcome message to your customers is the first opportunity to set the tone of future communication. Ask yourself: “What can I communicate to provide immediate value to my customer?”. If your app is a shopping app, you might want to consider welcoming customers with a special offer or discount as an incentive to make their first visit to a store and purchase.
Some customers are active for the first couple of months, but then slowly visit less and less. A well planned, proactive push notification campaign can help you keep customer engagement high. Send a push campaign that sparks their curiosity and gets them back into your store.

That being said, there are good practices you MUST follow to increase your chances of having your campaign go viral. If you are striving to build a viral proximity marketing campaign, here’s how you can give your campaign the best shot:

Additional information can be hidden behind a call to action button. Remember, BeLocal Pro enables you to take control thanks to the easy-to-use campaign templates.
PLAN YOUR COPY
You may think that viral marketing campaigns happen by accident, but most of them are carefully planned. Ensure that your copy is easy-to-read and understand for your customers.
FOCUS ON EMOTIONS
Viral campaigns always trigger emotions. They are often humorous, silly, but they can also be sentimental. As you plan a campaign, make sure there is an emotional touch to your message. Informative campaigns can also go viral, but they have to trigger emotions, as well. Focus on people's hopes, dreams or sense of humor, and your campaign will be successful and far more likely to go viral.
