Show a message based on the visitor's geographical location
Customers love to be treated special. And the best way to do this is by personalization.Icegram already equips you with amazing targeting rules – that help in personalization – and Geo Targeting takes it a few notches higher.
What is Geo Targeting?
What if you could create a special message for visitors from North America? Or how about greeting them in their own language?
Geo Targeting means showing a message based on visitor's location.
Geo Targeting is great for local marketing, segmenting your customer base and engaging with them in a more meaningful way.
How does it work in Icegram?
Icegram's Geo Targeting addon lets you add geo location rules to your campaigns – just like the other scheduling / page targeting / device targeting / user targeting rules. You can easily add as many locations as you want to show this campaign for.
When a visitor comes to your site, the Geo Targeting add on automatically identifies her continent, country and city based on her IP address. If the location matches the locations you entered in the campaign, then only the campaign will show to the visitor.
