The rapidly evolving and digitally integrated business environment requires a more fluid approach to marketing.
Retailers rely heavily on digital tools to assist in lead generation and sales; however, most companies still use outdated advertising strategies with almost zero ROI capabilities.
Retailers are struggling with foot traffic and sales.
Manufacturing relies on retail to buy their goods while retail, in most cases, have little marketing and advertising capabilities to adequately push those goods.
Plunk bridges the gap between how manufacturers and retailers communicate their product and brand's message to the consumer.
Plunk is for manufacturers that have many retail locations and need a turnkey strategy to help push retail sales as well as a consistent brand message.
Plunk's strategy enables manufacturers to engage and support individual retail locations that ensures increased foot traffic and sales.
Plunk efficiently manages up to 8 geo based campaigns per location at a time including social, search, display, video, retargeting, product and prospecting.
This strategy is very turnkey as it requires minimum involvement from the manufacturer while providing the most up-to-date form of accountability in determining ROI.
Plunk ensures click fraud prevention by closely monitoring each Ad request against a geo database.
Plunk is an ad platform that precisely manages thousands of geo targeted ad campaigns. Plunk uses integrated marketing techniques and machine learning algorithms to manage highly targeted campaigns across thousands of markets.
An Integrated Marketing Campaign is a highly targeted campaign based around a consistent message. This could be a product launch, event, promotion, etc… All efforts including ads, social media, e-blasts, and other channels are built around this one campaign.
Geo-targeting refers to the practice of delivering different content to a website user based on his or her geographic location. Geo-targeting can be used to target local customers through retargeting, display, paid or organic search.
Plunk uses GPS and positioning technology to create a virtual geographic boundary also known as GEO-fencing, enabling the platform to trigger mobile search and display ads to potential customers in a particular area.
Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed.
Plunk uses machine learning to place and adjust bids on ads as well as optimize each ad campaign based on user behavior. The platform constantly monitors user reaction to ads and determines if the campaign should be adjusted for a better conversion rate.
