The sunscreen’s core audience is made up of people who actively spend time outdoors, especially at beaches, pools, and parks. Thinknear leveraged real-time user location data and a proprietary place database to target users. Additionally, Thinknear incorporated the local UV index dynamically into each of the ads to ensure consumers were only reached in areas where the sun was out and the temperatures were high.
The sunscreen brand was intent on reaching consumers in geographies where the sun was bright, but they also wanted to narrow targeting to people who were part of the core sunscreen audience. By focusing on mobile users near beaches, pools, and parks, the ad became more relevant and engaging for the consumer. Thinknear also incorporated local inventory data into the ads so users would know the nearest store where they could purchase the sunscreen.
