How Geotarget SMS Messaging Works

Bulmers Irish Cider, by sending out an SMS message using Geofencing notifications, were able to increase pub sales of their cider by 50% in the UK, proving that geotarget SMS messaging works!

Bulmers achieved this by creating a SMS geofence within a half-mile radius of more that 1,000 pubs in the UK.  The message was set to target customers  between the ages 18-34.  Once these potential customers were within the radius, they were sent an SMS message pointing them in the direction of the nearest bottle!

The Facts:

Some important facts after a month of running this campaign;
