Identify User Location to Deliver Geographically Targeted Content with IP Intelligence Technology
The Internet makes every online company instantly global, which can be a double-edged sword for many. On one hand, the sales and revenue opportunities are immense. On the other, the competition increases—and not just from across the street.
Providing one-size-fits-all content to online visitors is no longer effective in reaching and relating to geographically dispersed audiences. In reality, there are no longer “national” or “international” consumers. They’re digital. And, they’re local. Localization not only allows brands to leverage the unique wants and needs of consumers, but also allows them to identify those needs across very specific and pinpointed geographic areas.
IP Geolocation Reduces Site and Transaction Abandonment
Brick-and-mortar stores know where their customers come from so they can stock shelves differently; present signs and conduct transactions in native languages; and show prices in the right currency. The online audience is so vast that this is not an easy task. Buying decisions are often made within milliseconds, and companies have but a short window of opportunity to provide relevant content and products in order to reduce website and transaction abandonment.
Locally targeted content has been proven to perform better than global content, facilitating six times more engagement. But, how can businesses easily and successfully localize content in today’s data-overloaded, privacy-sensitive environment? With IP-based geolocation technology. Armed with real-time information based on users’ geographic locations, companies of any size—from mom-and-pop retailers to globally recognized corporations—can customize website content, language, currency, products and promotions for their online audiences, creating a first-touch, instant connection.
