As in real estate, everything is location, location, location. Currently, those who try to take the lead in mobile marketing are making a strong commitment to geolocation services, in order to have a closer approach to their audience. In other words, they are based on where they are.

The less late a person arrived at the store, the greater the discount obtained. This commitment to localization has the strong support of the rapid conversion of mobile access to local access. With more and more access points such as Wi-Fi hotspots, it is easier to know where the audience you want to reach is, and thus, to offer something more specific.
As if this were not enough, a greater amount of products from day to day are incorporating mobile utilities, from helmets to skis.
