Mobile Marketing – Recruitment

Copley Advertising is looking at changing the way companies recruit candidates - the current recruitment system is antiqued and ineffective. Paying a recruiter $5,000 to drag a body across your lobby floor and say, "Here pay me and don't worry, they will last six months." doesn't seem like an intelligent way to hire someone. On the other hand, posting ads on Indeed.com would attract prospects that are out of work and may lack contacts or skills to land other positions. The market would dictate that these candidates are less than ideal. Noah Kagen (early member at Facebook and Mint and...

Mobile Marketing – Relax its Geofencing

Geofencing is a must-have tool for mobile marketers. The ability to target by latitude/longitude in 254 countries is impressive, but sometimes the client gets a little "greedy" and asks us to drill down to .00001 miles from a location. While the mindset is to eliminate waste, this thinking can cause wasted impressions and missed opportunities. Sometimes buyers have a split personality regarding mobile. On one hand, they see the possibilities of geotargeting smartphones, running video ads, downloading IDs of tagged users that received an impression and a retargeting folder for devices that engaged with the creative. It is exciting and...

Mobile Marketing – Mobile Transit Domination

Wikipedia reports over 1.5 million people ride Boston’s MBTA transit system each weekday. Boston is one of the five largest transit systems in the country. The other cities being Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and Washington, DC. Copley Advertising has announced a new mobile marketing transit advertising program that allows clients to geofence any one, or part, of the top five transit systems in the country. “Transit advertising has always been one of our targets. The same advertising model has been in use for 100 years. We thought it was time for a major shift and a better way to serve...

Mobile Marketing – Facebook 2Q 2017

TechCrunch reported: Facebook’s hot streak continued with a strong Q2 2017 earnings report. It earned $9.32 billion. Revenue growth was 44.7 percent year-over-year. Mobile now accounts for 87 percent of ad revenue, or $8 billion, compared to 85 percent last quarter and 84 percent a year ago. Total ad revenue was $9.16 billion. The Facebook numbers are crushing it; they hit all the projections and their main issue is that they are running out of space to advertise (a preview of my blog next year post “It was the Instagram, stupid”). But the main takeaway for mobile marketers is that...

Geofencing – Back to School

August 1st comes around every year along with “back to school” commercials, during which time the National Retail Federation reports $75.8 billion will be spent on supplies. With Staples being the “King of Back to School” (MarketWatch), there are some great opportunities for Staples (and its competitors) to convert back to school shoppers to year-round regulars. In our video, "How Staples Can Make Back to School Last All Year", Copley Advertising lays out our plan to make engage back to school shoppers all year long. First, Staples needs to geofence all stores during the back to school season. They can...

Geofencing – Millennials Who Are Moms

Marketers are going to have to rethink how to reach millennials especially millennials who are mothers. The game has changed and previous norms are no more: some of these households don't have landlines or cable TV. And if you are thinking about using newspapers or radio campaigns to capture this audience, you might want to rethink your position. USA Today reports, "Millennials… have been shaped by a variety of influences, including the fact that they grew up with technology. An ethnically and racially diverse group and one that is highly educated but also under-employed, Millennials are generally optimistic and resilient...

Geofencing – Recruitment – Nurses

NPR recently reported that John Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida was turning to geofencing as a tool to recruit nurses. They're targeting nurses at rival hospitals (geo-conquesting) and their homes (geotargeting). After years of trying traditional outlets (newspaper, radio, and recruitment firms) John Hopkins decided to go another route. Guess what.   "We have invaded their (Nurses) space in which they live and work, so it's a much better use of our dollars," the hospital administrator was quoted. "We're not just throwing out a wide net and seeing who comes through the pipeline." Compared to traditional advertising John...

Geofencing – Off-Campus Housing

Mobile Marketing is a perfect fit for companies that own off-campus housing properties. College students are a great demographic for geofencing. The expansion of mobile capabilities and tracking have allowed mobile marketing companies to be creative in their approach to client's needs. Off-Campus Housing properties need to fill beds. The competition is fierce. There seems to an insatiable appetite for newer and better. But if there was an ability to meet the short term goals of filling units and create a consist pool of would-be renters that would be an interesting model. Mobile Marketing can deliver that model. Here are...
