What is Geofencing?
Geofencing is the tactic that senior living marketing teams use to target individuals in a hyper-specific geographic radius. In practical terms, geofencing acts as a digital fence that’s enclosed around a physical area. Once a targeted audience enters the area with a geofence surrounding it, that audience will be exposed to a display ad with a marketing message.
What is Geoframing?
Like geofencing, geoframing is utilized to target identified audiences in geographic areas. However; unlike geofencing, geoframing is used to target individuals who used to be in a specific geographic radius. For example, if your senior living marketing and sales team recently had a prospective resident visit your community, you could use geoframing to send an ad or message to those individuals.
Note: When executing geoframing like the example above, allow for at least two full business days to pass. That way, your community’s outreach will come across as helpful instead of being perceived as pushy or creepy.
