Consumers Give Location Marketing a Resounding Maybe
As the use, variety, and power of mobile devices has exploded in every corner of the globe, digital marketers dream of using location marketing to reach consumers in the moment, wherever they are – whether walking through a shopping district, killing time in an airport, relaxing after dinner at a restaurant, or weaving through traffic on the way to a ballgame. Among digital marketers, there’s often a rock-solid conviction that consumers want to be interrupted and get messages or information on their phones (and sometimes pay for it!).
But do consumers really want these alerts and notifications, or do they consider them an intrusion or even a threat to their privacy?
