March 16, 2018 / by Dave Heinzinger

Big location data is powerful stuff. It enables us to reach shoppers at the perfect moments in the path to purchase; to predict major happenings like retail closures; and to rank restaurants based on visitation patterns of certain populations.

This week, our Late Night Dining inSights Report Card was featured on Good Morning America, as Michael Strahan and company counted down the top 5. In this report, we ranked America’s restaurant chains based on highest percentage of foot traffic visiting between 12am-4am. Watch the full segment here

Toys “R” Us, Nine West Troubles Validate Predictive Location Data

January 25, 2018 / by Dave Heinzinger

Times are hard for many legacy brick-and-mortar retailers, as ecommerce and mobile-first consumer behavior have changed the rules of the game seemingly overnight.

For Toys “R” Us, a 70-year-old company, the reality has been bankruptcy leading to the closure of 182 stores to stay afloat. For Nine West, Bloomberg reports that a bankruptcy filing is in the works, as the company looks to restructure almost $1.5BN in debt.

Though they’re in very different categories, Toys “R” Us and Nine West do have one thing in common: Low customer loyalty, according to inMarket’s most recent loyalty report for non-grocery retail.

In a story with CNBC, inMarket predicted that Nine West -- which ranked last for customer loyalty -- would likely be next to shutter stores. Toys “R” Us checked in with the 3rd-lowest loyalty score on the list. Given the news this week, both retailers are case examples of the power of inMarket’s location data to predict market and retail trends.

How Long Do New Year's Resolutions Last? 

January 22, 2018 / by Dave Heinzinger

Now that we’ve rung in the New Year, people around the country are making resolutions to better themselves in a wide variety of ways. Self-improvement topics like fitness and well being always top the list. According to Harper’s Bazaar, the top resolution for 2017 was “dieting, exercising and losing weight.”


Resolutions like this are as common as snowflakes this time of year, but do they stick and become permanent fixtures in our lives? Or do they simply melt away? We decided to review foot traffic data from inMarket’s mobile audience of over 50 million consumers (via direct SDK connections) to answer the question: Just how long do New Year’s resolutions last?

Location Data Proves Predictive as Challenges Mount at Toys R Us

December 22, 2017 / by Dave Heinzinger

Toys R Us, which filed for bankruptcy in September, is reportedly considering the closure of 200 stores across the U.S., according to Bloomberg.

As retail evolves, location data is becoming even more vital in understanding how people shop in the real world. Toys R Us is yet another example of just how powerful location data can be in predicting business health. In June, inMarket added the toy seller to its list of at-risk retailers due to low customer loyalty. The study was based on inMarket’s first-party data from more than 50 million consumers, as verified by comScore.

More than half of these at-risk retailers have shuttered stores and slowed growth in 2017, including Gap, bebe and H&M.

Lidl Halts Expansion Plans in NJ

December 11, 2017 / by Dave Heinzinger posted in mobile, in-store, retail, apps, social, retail, foot traffic, grocery, lidl

Multiple outlets are reporting that German-based grocer Lidl has halted expansion plans in New Jersey. The news comes on the heels of inMarket’s Lidl Report Card, which identified decreasing foot traffic at the chain after its U.S. debut in June 2017.

MW-FM649_lidl_s_20170517111905_MG.jpg


inMarket CMO Cameron Peebles explained to Supermarket News today that Lidl’s strong opening in foot traffic eventually fell into late-summer decline. Peebles also said that changes to Lidl’s expansion strategy could potentially be a result of disappointing traffic performance, saying “Consumers vote with their feet in the retail environment.” He speculated that perhaps the brand had failed to retain customers after they made their first exploratory visits to the store.


NJ.com also mentions the recent inMarket Report Card in its story: "Lidl's June success doesn't seem to have maintained itself… While the low-cost grocer has seen some initial success, they'll need to inspire customer loyalty through great in-store experiences if they want to truly gain SOV (share of visits) from the established players in the space."

At inMarket, we're constantly measuring foot traffic patterns for 50 million consumers per month. In our latest inSights Report Card, we're analyzing foot traffic at leading U.S. music festivals and breaking them down by attendee income. There are a few clear patterns, specifically in terms of which advertisers are targeting upmarket and midmarket income levels.

Is the Lidl U.S. Expansion Succeeding? 

October 10, 2017 / by Dave Heinzinger posted in mobile, in-store, retail, apps, social, mobile, retail, grocery, amazon, lidl, walmart

Lidl -- the German grocer operating over 10,000 stores across 28 countries -- entered the U.S. market for the first time in June, 2017.  It's a bold move at a time when major e-tailers like Amazon are diving into brick-and-mortar retail, and established low-cost players like Walmart becoming more aggressive than ever.

Lidl selected nine launch markets across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia for its first U.S. stores. To understand their traction, we dug into inMarket Location Data -- which aggregates store visits across all retailers in the U.S., based on a pool of 50 million consumers per month -- to see how Lidl has fared thus far, and if there was an impact on its competitors.

(inMarket uses this same proprietary, first-party location data to power online-to-offline advertising campaigns for the world’s leading brands and retailers. If you're interested in putting our location data to work for your brand, contact us today.)

In brief: Lidl started hot in June -- appearing to acquire visits from competitive retailers like Walmart, BI-LO and Harris Teeter. That success was short-lived, however, as traffic dropped off in July and August.

Consumers vote with their feet, and inMarket’s location engine is able to precisely measure if Lidl’s competitive offering is resonating and driving consistent foot traffic. Check out the full report over at inmarket.com/insights today.
