Pushing Buttons:
Geofencing

What if a company could push relevant and timely messages to your phone on the things you are interested in the most?  Well, we’ve found exactly that. Placecast, a company using Geofencing and ShopAlerts, gives customers the opportunity to opt-in to the brands they like and receive messages when they are close to a specific location (think restaurants and retail stores). In this episode, we’ll show you one example of how it works, and the benefits and concerns to you, the customer. Need more info? Visit placecast.net.
