Target high-quality prospects
with location-based ads

Specialized Geotargeting

Specialized geotargeting allows you to target and retarget prospects based on where they live, work, or visit, and is essential to efficient budget spend. Leveraging cookies and mobile device location services, you can target prospects when they’re near your store or a competitor’s store, or identify a qualified prospect based on where they’ve been, such as a sports event or an industry conference.

Specialized Geotargeting Types

  • Use proximity targeting to hone in on areas close to event spaces or company/store addresses during a specific timeframe(s) on a specific date(s). Ideal for large events or conferences. Mobile in-app only (320×50).
  • Use proximity retargeting to retarget users captured via proximity targeting clicks. Mobile in-app only (320×50).
  • Use past event proximity targeting to identify and target users that were at a given location at a particular date and time range in the past. Ideal for large events or conferences. Mobile in-app only (320×50).
  • Use radial targeting to hit a radius around a specific area, with increasing or diminishing bids depending on proximity to a primary location.
  • Use geolocation retargeting to retarget users who have physically been to a specific location or list of locations within the past 30 days. Mobile in-app only (320×50).

Example Strategies for Specialized Geotargeting


An exercise clothing retailer is looking to increase its brand awareness and drive conversions in a major metropolitan area. They decide to set up a specialized geotargeting campaign to target and retarget runners who participated in a local half marathon.


A local coffee shop is interested in increasing their market share of local coffee drinkers, whose business is spread among three local coffee shops. Working with Digital Mouth, they developed a specialized geotargeting strategy to target and retarget customers of its competitors with promotions for a new drink they are offering at their neighborhood store.

“When I started working with Digital Mouth, I was relatively new to digital advertising. My Digital Mouth account manager made time to get me up to speed and never made me feel like I was a bother. She addresses all my questions and we collaborate to optimize performance.”
