Popular DID Targeting Strategies

These are some of the many ways to leverage DID targeting for your campaign.


Reach consumers who have visited target locations in the past, regardless of where  they are now.


Reach consumers who have visited your competition’s locations.


Link device IDs to home address, and vice versa.


Expanded audience segments that include other devices in the household and/or audience members with the same demographic and behavioral attributes.

Foot Traffic/Point of Interest (POI) Attribution

Frequently asked questions

How many device IDs do I need in order to run a campaign with significant reach?

It always depends on the budget and flight dates, but we recommend a minimum of 50,000 device IDs per segment as a conservative baseline estimate. Audiences can always be expanded by utilizing the household extension and lookalike technologies.

How is user privacy protected? Are there restrictions by industry?

The location data is collected by individual user apps with individual user agreements per app, so its all opt-in. There are no official restrictions by industry, but we recommend NOT targeting K-12 schools in order to avoid any potential violations of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA) Regulations.

Can we exclude employees and/or business owners who frequent my target locations(s)?

YES. We can see the frequency of each device ID matched to a location and timeframe, and can exclude users deemed to be employees and/or business owners.
