Enhance Your Location-Based Marketing ROI.
If you target highly specific territories or run digital marketing campaigns for multiple facilities, you may want more geographic data than what Google Analytics provides. That’s why we developed GeoReport+ (pronounced Geo Report Plus).
The creation of this tool stems from the demand we saw from numerous clients who needed a better way to analyze their digital campaigns across geographic locations. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to understand whether or not the users reached with Google Ads are within the ideal target service region. This is especially true for brick and mortar stores–in the standard Google Analytics interface, it’s impossible to assess traffic by geography with respect to the distance from your physical store locations.
GeoReport+ enriches your Google Analytics and Google Ads data with more precise location information, allowing you to precisely detect user locations plus calculate the distance to your nearest store location. This tool gives you actionable insights to optimize your campaigns and improve your ROI.
Our multi-location clients invest heavily in digital advertising to support their local stores. See how GeoReport+ helped this industry-leading dealer of accessible vehicles understand a key assumption before creating and advertising a brand new national delivery program:
This national dealer of wheelchair vans was interested in creating and advertising a new delivery program that would target users located up to 100 miles outside of a physical store location. However, this distance was only an assumption not based on verifiable data.
Using GeoReport+, we set out to validate whether this geographic assumption regarding their target audience was correct. This analysis would ultimately determine whether the client launched this new program.
During the analysis phase, we discovered that the ideal radius for each physical store location varied based on nearby population density. Knowing this, we assigned an ideal target range for each store. As a result, the client was able to quantify their existing number of “in-range” customers and more accurately justify whether to launch the program.
GeoReport+ is a hosted solution that reads your GA data and enriches each record with customizable location information. The processed data can be viewed with our robust reporting interface, or we can set up a custom feed or API for your needs. You also have the option to download raw and filtered data directly to Excel.
GeoReport+ uses the location data provided by Google Analytics to mark your visitor and goal completion records with additional location tags. Each record can have 2 sets of tags:
For GeoReport+ to attribute GA records to specific brick-and-mortar locations, it is necessary to upload the street addresses of your locations and specify the distance of the service region around them. The system will attribute each GA record to your closest location. Records outside of your service region will be marked as “out of range.”
