Weather-based marketing is a powerful tool when it comes to capitalizing on consumer behavior that changes with the weather.
The days of only being able to get the weather forecast on the TV, radio, or in the newspaper before heading to work are long gone. Now consumers have a variety of ways to check the weather, including weather sites online, real-time weather apps or local news apps.
Mobile now accounts for nearly one-third of all e-commerce sales, as InternetRetailer notes — and recent reports state that consumers check the weather on their mobile phones multiple times a day. Real-time mobile engagement gives you a great opportunity to capitalize on hyper-local geotargeted ads that can be changed as often as the weather.
