Mobile Advertising. Everyone wins!

Reading the title you might be asking yourself, “How can everyone win when it comes to mobile advertising.” Simply put, everyone involved in mobile advertising gets something from the process. There are companies, such as Viuer and We Are Nexen, who work with assorted brands, as well as ridesharing providers Uber and Lyft, to get mobile-ads to passengers. The brands get exposure geared to a specific target, the drivers get compensated for offering rideshare advertising, and Viuer and We Are Nexen, get compensated for helping the other parties involved.
How Does This Work?
Plainly speaking, small and large companies need to get the word out there in order to get customer engagement. Radio, print, and television ads can get the word out about assorted products and services but in the high tech world we live, that is just not enough. Many major brands are turning to in-vehicle advertising.
Auto ads start with finding the correct digital media agency. When a brand finds the right agency they can pair up with the likes of a provider of beacon ads, or tablet advertising. Ridesharing services, such as Uber and Lyft, have already incorporated both of these forms of technology into their vehicles.
The Passenger
The passengers that utilize these ridesharing services are the ultimate winners when it comes to mobile advertising. Since they are not driving they have the opportunity to either use the tablet or iPad provided in most ridesharing vehicles, or they can use their own mobile device.
With beacons, such as those provided by the likes of We Are Nexen, the passenger is able to get personalized engagement from brands for out-of-home advertising. This is possible through a Bluetooth signal that the beacon sends out to the passenger’s mobile device. The passenger gets personalized 1 on 1 engagement with a brand where they can get free items, or discounts in exchange for watching videos, reading something, or making an initial purchase.
When it comes to Uber advertising, companies like Viuer offer brands with the ability to provide geo-targeted ads to passengers. Compelling and engagement driven ads are visible on the installed tablets or iPads in the Uber vehicles. The passenger might see a coupon for a local restaurant, movie house, or even Starbucks. The passenger can choose to engage with the ads in order to receive something free or discounted. The best part about this type of mobile ads is that they are not random, they are specifically designed to include businesses in the general area of where the passenger is picked up and ultimately dropped off.
Through the beauty of modern technology, potential consumers can reap the rewards of ads that are more individual focused and not mass media focused. Instead of randomly surfing the web, social media, or interacting with friends when going from point A to point B, passengers now have the opportunity to get deals, freebies, and other assorted bargains for minimal engagement on their mobile device.
