AdBiblio Foot Traffic Ad Campaigns – everything you need to know!

What if you could reach diverse readers in queer-owned bookstores? What about teachers and librarians who attended ALA? Or sci-fi book buyers who attended San Diego Comic-Con?

Well, you can – with AdBiblio Foot Traffic ad campaigns!

What is a Foot Traffic campaign, and how does it work?

Foot Traffic campaigns utilize location-based ad software to target consumers or attendees in real-time in relation to a defined radius in or around a specific area. Foot Traffic campaigns can also target people who previously visited a location or event.

In short, we can serve ads to readers while they are in a specific place at a specific time – like browsing inside a Barnes & Noble or a library!

If your goal is promoting your book to readers who are Costco members, we can reach shoppers who have been at Costco in the past 30 days.
