Lets say you run a restaurant that has two branches, one in New York and one in California. Lets say your New York branch is offering a special deal currently for burgers and your California branch is offering a special deal for steaks. Your restaurant website, gets plenty of visitors from both New York and California, however there is absolutely no point in displaying the steak deal to New Yorkers as it is completely irrelevant to them. Also it would be waste of space if you had to display both deals to every customer.
Now imagine you can make use of the power of Geo Targeted banners from Geolify. You can create two separate banners that are targeted to the two states. If a visitor from New York comes to your website, he/she will only be displayed the burger deal. See the power of Geo Targeting!
