Hidden Secrets of Beacon Data

This PDF contains the slides from the Hidden Secrets of Beacon Data webinar, co-hosted by Reveal Mobile and The Location Based Marketing Association. We share new uses for beacons and never-before-seen data about the audiences bumping into beacons across the US. Brands will see examples of the type of audience data generated by placing beacons within retail locations. Which locations are most visited, which other places do customers visit, what other demographics can we learn? What can beacons tell us about Walmart or Target shoppers? What impact do beacons have on increasing audience data, building retargeting audiences, or driving app downloads? App publishers will hear advertising use cases leveraging both beacon-derived and location-based audience segments.

Beacons Build Bigger Audiences - Analysis of Retail Visits at Four Carriers

It's no secret that companies, brands, and retailers are deploying beacons by the tens of thousands. The majority of the use cases we read about focus on one primary use case for beacons: the push notification. Walk in to a store, have that store's app on your phone, the app detects the beacon, the app sends you a push notification based upon that beacon bump. This type of marketing, when done right, holds big potential for mobile marketing. We believe that there's even bigger potential to use beacons for two different reasons. Retargeting Attribution Because beacons work passively in the background, they enable companies to build bigger audiences. Using lat/long to place someone at a location typically requires that person to pen their phone at that location. Even then, the accuracy is pretty poor. There's a key point here: beacons build bigger audiences than lat/long. We analyzed visitors to the retail locations of the four major mobile carriers: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The result are pretty incredible. Verizon, which has beacons installed nationwide, builds audiences that were 200-300% larger than their peers. So what?

Analysis of Beacons at SXSW 2016

The annual South by Southwest conference is one of the largest gatherings of technology companies in the world. This year's event ran from March 11 through March 20, with over 70,000 people in attendance. Reveal Mobile was fortunate to attend, serving as moderator for The Location Based Marketing Association's panel discussion on location-based advertising effectiveness. Locations of devices when they bumped beacons along 6th Street in Austin, TX LOCATIONS OF DEVICES WHEN THEY BUMPED BEACONS ALONG 6TH STREET IN AUSTIN, TX While we were there, we did a little poking around to see if we could detect beacons. Conference organizers deployed around 1,000 beacons in 2015. Were other companies also deploying beacons? While we did manually detect a few beacons ourselves, we let the network of apps with our mobile audience SDK inside do the heavy lifting. Because our tech sits inside a few hundred apps across the country, we should be able to detect lots of beacons at SXSW. Guess what? We did! In this report we share the number of beacons detected, how many companies we think deployed beacons, and what app publishers and advertisers should do with this kind of data.

Where Are The Beacons In the U.S.?

Reveal Mobile has detected and classified over 100,000 Bluetooth beacons in the United States.  How?

The Reveal Mobile SDK sits inside a few hundred news and weather apps across the country, touching millions of mobile devices monthly. As smartphones bump into any beacon, we detect that beacon bump.  If the user chooses to share location with the app, we see the latitude and longitude of where that bump occurred.
