Advertising can be targeted to the point of connection by location, venue type, and by device. By knowing the context of a person’s location, JiWire provides the most relevant information for understanding a brand’s on-the-go consumer. It’s this unique location detail that gives brands the ability to understand their audience from a deep location perspective. In both the US and Europe, JiWire has enabled over 125 premium brand advertisers to reach millions of people on the move.
