Location Marketing

Scary?? Check.

Funny?? Check.


Impact of Technology? I like to think of it more this way

Starbucks Homepage


The Starbucks application on my iPhone tracks my location to tell me where the closest coffee shop is in the form of a pop-up on my screen

Dalal's iPhone 5 Homescreen I find this feature useful sometimes, but annoying most of the time. The reason is whenever you are close to a Starbucks a pop-up appears, even if you have just exited one.

In New York City alone are 250+ Starbucks stores, so imagine how many times a day a pop-up pops on my screen. It’s literally my lock screen.


A more effective way Starbucks are using to drive traffic are their coupons. (Turn from a stalker to a friend).

This is What I call The Happiness Ladder:
