Notes: Despite Q1 traditionally seeing lower use of geo-precise targeting (targeting areas that do not conform to standard geo-boundaries), 79% of campaigns on the xAd platform used the technique in Q1, up from 58% in the year-earlier period. Geo-precise targeting was most heavily used by the retail (95% of campaigns), restaurant (95%) and auto (94%) sectors, which the analysts attribute to proximity being a key factor in the target audience’s decision to visit a location.
