As a mobile advertising specialist, Mobsuccess buys more than 2 billion impressions each year, exclusively in-app, and uses GPS information from smartphones to geolocate its campaigns for a drive-to-store strategy.

With the pandemic’s second lockdown causing the store closure of their client GiFi, Mobsuccess needed to not only implement a Click&Collect site, but also change their strategy, from drive-to-store to drive-to-web by exploiting mobile web inventories.

The Objectives

  • Quickly shift from a drive-to-store strategy to a drive-to-web strategy to promote GiFi’s Click&Collect site.
  • Use mobile web inventory – not exclusively in-app – to display promotional banners.
  • Use WiFi information in addition to GPS to identify and target more than 500 spots of interest near GiFi’s stores.

The Solution

Mobsuccess chose to activate Smart Buyer Connect (SBC) to quickly create deals that match its KPIs, the main one being qualified traffic generated on websites. The formats available on SBC, added to contextual targeting and location targeting by city were a decisive element.

Also, the time saved in deal creation and follow up as a result of the deal troubleshooting module made it possible to intuitively adapt their buying strategies on the platform.

“SBC is responsible for Mobsuccess’ first drive-to-web success, with a performance level as good as, or even better than, what we used to observe in the in-app market. The granular level at which we were able to target through WiFi interest spots was of great importance and aligned well with our client’s campaigns, as GiFi counts almost 500 stores all across the French territory. Our teams did not meet any difficulties when using the platform and we had the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge of Smart’s teams at any time. It is a real partnership.”
