Personalization Based on Geo-Location

How and why to tailor your content based on visitor demographics and location

WiseGeo provides an API service that provides location intelligence and demographics responses enabling personalized content.

WiseGeo links the geo-location of your visitor with the demographics of that area. Data is calculated for the location and transformed into a response you want. This can be raw data (for your own algorithms) or interpreted data responses (such as the campaign ID/URL to use on your website). Within milliseconds and before your web site opens, your website will have the data to personalization digital content.

Why personalize your digital content with WiseGeo API

Computers, tablets and mobile phones already provide you with the physical location of your website visitors when they come to your site. This is what the button "Use my current location" means when you visit a web site and how Google Maps, Facebook, and Uber know your GPS.

WiseGeo enriches this location data for all your (Canadian) visitors with demographics and interests of people. Our APIs provide data on housing, age, income, ethnicity and family structure for you to use to personalize your content.

Facebook targeting and Google Adwords allow you to tailor posts/ads to the right customer. WiseGeo provides a similar capability when people land on your website.

Our goal is to provide you with insights that help improve conversion rates, ROI and gain a competitive advantage by providing the right content to the right people.
