Beyond IOT: Hyperlocal Marketing with BLE Beacons
Remember that scene in Minority Report when Tom Cruise is running through the mall and he’s being relentlessly targeted by retail offers based on biometric feedback? Even though that film was based in an imagined 2054, that kind of hyperlocalized targeting is available now, and it’s done with BLE Beacons.
Beacons are the latest evolution in the landscape of IOT. As small as a quarter, these are wireless Bluetooth-powered location-aware transmitters that provide increased geo-targeting through apps or smartphones. Retailers or just general brick-and-mortar locations can install beacons throughout their stores and venues, then hypertarget their audience with offers and marketing messages.
The number of beacons deployed in the United States is projected to pass 400 million by 2020. In 2016, beacons influenced over $40 billion in retail sales. In short, beacons are a big deal – and if you are a retailer not using them, you could be at a competitive disadvantage.
