Geo Fencing Drives Website Traffic, How Do I Convert to Sales?

April 8, 2021

Geo Fencing: A Quick Explanation

Geo fencing works off the location reader on your cell phone.  If you can order an uber or have food delivered, your location reader is on. This means you can be added to an active audience and receive relevant advertising.

When someone with a cell phone enters a geofenced area or target zone, the encrypted information is added to an audience. An advertiser can now serve ads to this audience across most websites, apps and even television.

We can also track when someone receiving ads crosses over into a conversion zone like your place of business.  This provides a precise ROI on your advertising dollars.

Remember, the places you physically go is the strongest indicator of your buying intent.

Relevant advertising to targeted audiences provides the best results.

Geo Fence Marketing and Conversion Rate Optimization

The study of Conversion rate optimization (CRO) is the step by step process of increasing website visitors who take a desired action.  That action could be filling out a form, becoming customers, e-commerce sales, etc.. The CRO process involves analyzing how users move through your site, what actions they take, and what’s stopping them from completing your goals.

First Step: Measure Traffic from Your Geo Fencing Advertising Campaign and Review Reports

If you are working with a quality geofencing agency, like GetGeofencing, you will get reports showing:

  • Locational Data
  • Time of Day
  • Demographic Data
  • Click Response
  • Physical Visits to Your Location (if applicable)
  • Ad Response
  • Etc.

Start with analyzing your conversion rate.  Simply put:

Website Visitors / Desired Action

Example: If you have 5,000 website visitors and 500 of them complete the desired action, then your conversion rate is 10%.

Use Quantitative Analysis

Perform quantitative analysis.  A brief definition for quantitative analysis is:

  • Using mathematical and statistical modeling, measurement, and research that to understand behavior.
  • Presenting reality in terms of a numerical value.
  • Evaluating and predicting real-world events.

Conversion Rate Optimization Website Design

Look at competitor sites, ones that are increasing their ad spend.  This tells if their design is working.  The four cornerstones of conversion website design are:

  2. Highlighting the offer
  3. Testing ad copy
  4. Testing styles and layouts

A practical way to do this is have the folks at Fiverr.com or Upwork.com build landing pages, then give Getgeofencing.com a call to draft ads and run them in front of targeted audiences.  It should take about 2 weeks to know what is working.
