What is geofencing?

Geofencing marketing is a location-based marketing strategy (LBM) that relies on GPS technology from mobile phones to deliver relevant ads to potential customers who have stepped into custom digital “fences,” or geofences.

RestaurantGeofencing.com can help your restaurant set up geofences around competitors, parks, stadiums, events and more! Promote your restaurant locally to contacts in your trade area and even contacts that visit popular or competitor sites. Visit our How Geofencing Works page to learn more.

What is the commitment?

Our fully transparent pricing model does not lock our customers into any long-term contracts. The initial commitment is three months, then month-to-month after that. RestauantGeofencing.com makes location-based marketing feasible for any budget.

How can we tell if it’s working?

We can track impressions, commercial views, clicks to your website and, most importantly, walk-ins by creating a geofence conversion zone around your restaurant. Over time, we optimize the campaigns to increase walk-ins and decrease cost per acquisition.

Can I geofence my competitors?

YES! We can use geofence marketing to politely steal away customers that walk into the premises of your competitors. We have also found that geofencing indirect competitors (like a local coffee shop or nearby restaurants) with different food offerings to be quite effective in bringing in foot-traffic.

What is a target zone?

A virtual geofence is traced around an area where the restaurant wants to target customers visiting another physical location (e.g. a competitor restaurant, a venue or a specific part of town, etc.). When the customer enters the geofenced target location, they will then receive your restaurant’s ads on their mobile device. And, upon arriving home, they will then be eligible to receive ads via their other connected devices as their mobile phone connects to their wifi network. Unlike other restaurant advertising agencies that offer geofencing, we carefully research every location we geofence to microtarget the right audience. Our geofences are accurate within feet!

What are conversion zones?

Conversion zones are the most powerful tool for tracking online to offline conversions in mobile restaurant advertising. By tracing a virtual conversion zone around a physical location, restaurant marketers can measure the amount of physical traffic to the location from any customers who have seen your ad. Essentially, the physical location of your restaurant serves as the ultimate conversion zone as we aim to increase walk-ins to your location.
