Press Releases

Frisco, TX – February 17, 2017 – Kevin Hodes, CEO of Swypit has published a new article entitled “An Intro to Geofencing: What is Geofencing and Why Should You Care?” In the article, Hodes defines GeoFencing and explains why it’s important for business owners in their marketing.

As Hodes explains, geofencing is becoming so popular in business applications today, especially those for local businesses, that it’s important for business owners to understand what it is and what it can do to aid marketing efforts.

Hodes elaborates, “In its broadest definition, geofencing detects when a device is in or enters a set location. You’ve likely seen instances of geofencing at work, while or when performing searches or in social media, when you are given or shown results specific to your location or near you.”

He goes on to add, “Basically, geofencing causes an action to trigger (such as showing a specific ad or alert) when a device (and the person holding or carrying the device) is “inside” the fenced area.”

Next, Hodes describes some ways business owners can benefit from the use of geofencing and the technical aspects of how to use the geofencing process. It’s likely not difficult to imagine that geofencing is especially valuable to mobile marketing. One specific example of an advantage geofencing provides local, small business owners via mobile that Hodes shares is:

“Some businesses even set up geofences around their competitors, so when customers approach the boundary, they’ll get a notification prompting them to visit another (their) business instead of the competitor’s. Aside from Facebook targeted advertising, other social media applications also make use of geofencing and the cutting-edge businesses have found ways to make this useful as well through location-based filters, stickers, and other content that will speak directly to this localized audience. “
