25% of senior marketing leaders still don’t know how to apply location-based data AUSTRALIA
I was referred by a colleague from my previous company who was already with Blis. I met with Richard Andrew who told me about the role and how it’d be a good fit for me based on feedback he gathered.

The study conducted with 150 CMOs, heads of marketing and agency directors from travel, retail and consumer goods brands uncovers why marketers are turning to real-world intelligence, how they are using it and what can be done to optimise their efforts.

That’s one use of location – but it barely scratches the surface of what understanding real-world human behaviour can truly bring to marketing and advertising.
