Blis is the global pioneer in location data. Their proprietary technology and platform are helping agencies and brands use location data to better understand consumer behavior, allowing for effective targeted advertising to drive business outcomes.
The company believes that where you go defines who you are and advertisers must capitalize on these insights for meaningful marketing experiences across devices. Their technology filters and scales location data, giving advertisers access to the most accurate location events, location data and unique devices.
The data is then applied across the apps that matter most to their consumers. Clients are supported by service experts or can work in a flexible service model of their choice. Since creating the world’s first location data technology platform in 2004, Blis has grown to be a global company with 17 offices operating in every region of the world.
Blis’ clients include all major holding companies as well as leading brands in top verticals including Samsung, McDonald’s, HSBC, Mercedes Benz, and Peugeot. A few months ago, I spoke to Gil Larsen, VP Americas on #634 to find out more about how Smart Scale detects and stores relationships between Wi-Fi addresses & specific geo-locations ensuring that accurate location targeting takes place. However, this time I want to chat to their UK office.
Alex Wright, Head of Insight at Blis joins me on my daily tech podcast. Alex has spent a decade working in insight roles across a diverse range of media owners in radio, print, and cinema, and most recently at OMD International where he was the EMEA Insight Lead on the Google account. Alex uses this perspective to understand the role mobile location data can play in audience profiling.
We discuss how much of tech innovation is evolutionary, not revolutionary. We also explore some of the location data misconceptions that you may have been reading about.
