Why should I do Smart 1 Location Ads for my business?
No business is too small for mobile advertising with Smart 1. Mobile display advertising is a great complement to your business listing on sites like Yelp, oursquare, Facebook, etc. While they help “pull” a customer to your location, Smart 1 Mobile helps “push” them towards your business. We use Latitude/Longitude (Lat/Long), the most accurate location data currently available for reaching people on their mobile device. This technology lets us create a perimeter around your business, called a Geo-fence; a highly effective way to send locally-targeted, relevant promotion to your customers.

Our technology allows us to reach customers within a specified perimeter of the business location, called geo-fencing.
What does self-service mean?
It means giving you, the advertiser, the ability to create and maintain your own ads without the assistance of an actual advertising sales representative. Self-service gives you more convenience to control your advertising messages and timing; it also allows us to provide you with more efficient pricing. What I do once I set it up? Once you turn the advertising “on,” we take care of the rest. Our technolog places your ad on mobile devices nearby as people surf popular mobile apps and sites. Smart 1 Mobile provides you with real-time reporting on your advertising campaign.

How far away from my business will you reach customers on their mobile device?
For populated areas, like cities, the default is 5 miles around your business location. For less populated, rural areas, we can
go out to 25 miles.
Can my business have more than one ad created?
Yes. As a matter of fact, we encourage that you experiment with multiple images and messages. Just remember that the impressions in your plan are distributed among the active ads you are running; so turn off the ones you are no longer using.
Will I see my ad on my cell phone?
We do not guarantee that you will be able to see your ad. There are many factors that determine who the ad is served to. You would need to be in the radius that we are targeting as well as in the target audience segments that we build. With thousands of ads competing with each other in a real-time auction environment, it’s impossible for us to guarantee you’ll see it live.
How do I know how my ads are performing?
To see how your ad is performing, simply log into Smart 1 Ads to view your Dashboard. You will see real-time reporting on the number of impressions delivered, the number of clicks (taps) on the ad, and the number of visits to your site. We also send a “Campaign Update” to your account e-mail when there is activity

Can I choose specific apps and sites where my ad will appear?

Why Use Location Advertising?
Recent studies have shown that banner advertising can increase traffic to a site by up to 300 percent. By increasing awareness of your brand through banner advertising, you can increase both online and offline sales without any actions needed from the user beyond just seeing your ad on sites they visit on a regular basis.
Current research shows that location ads can increase offline sales by as much as 43 percent.Location ads can increase the chances of a consumer recognizing your brand by up to 63 percent for some industries. When they see ads repeatedly on sites they visit, they are much more likely to remember and recognize the brand even if they have never clicked on any of the ads themselves. You must reach potential consumers where they spend the most time, and today that place is on the internet.
