NEW YORK, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verve Wireless, Inc., a leading U.S. mobile advertising company specializing in location centric solutions, recently ran back-to-back mobile campaigns for leading electronics retailer RadioShack that showcased the evolution of targeted mobile advertising, and the application towards driving offline/ brick n' mortar retail sales.
RadioShack was looking to drive in-store traffic and reinforce their position as a leading destination for purchasing mobile phones and accessories by targeting consumers who were nearing the end of their contract cycle and in the market for a new phone. Taking advantage of Verve's advanced targeting, precision location aware network, and anonymous consumer indexing, RadioShack's agency Mindshare Chicago put together a program that tied together mobile circulars and location-aware dynamic ads that exceeded all measures of success.
"We partnered with Verve because we knew they could help us move beyond the banner and create a mobile strategy that addressed the client's key objectives in a unique and innovative fashion," said Elizabeth Elliott, Senior Associate, Mobile Consultant at Mindshare Chicago.
The initial campaign ran through the holiday shopping season and was recently renewed. Key performance metrics from the initial campaign showed 2x engagement rate over the national average. Performance of targeted dynamic ads peaked on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, while overall click-through-rates were highest on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
"It is professionally gratifying to see brands like RadioShack, and their agency Mindshare, take advantage of some of the more advanced mobile advertising solutions we have on our premium network, and how these techniques are driving direct business success," said Greg Hallinan, Verve's Chief Marketing Officer. "We're excited to continue our relationship with Mindshare to help RadioShack meet their business objectives."
