Sponsored Locations

Overview

Used by: Location finders & navigation apps
Example companies: Waze, Yelp
What: Advertisers pay for their physical store to be highlighted - such as a nearby Wendy’s or CVS. The ad often consists of an icon popping up where the location is and is usually paired with a coupon
Why: Having an icon appear on a map is a much better user experience than a digital ad covering it up
Common targeting: Location, destination
Common tracked events: Impressions, clicks, whether they went to location
Common platform models: Direct deals
