Most e-commerce in many countries is now conducted on mobile devices.  Forget about someone going online at work or at home using a desktop or portable computer.

The most important thing now is to know where your customer is located when they are on your website, where they have been, and take a guess as to where they are going.  If you know where the customer is located, then you can make an intelligent guess about what they are doing, or how they are thinking or feeling.

Very few corporations or marketing strategies include location-based marketing, because it is difficult to deliver well.  Location-based marketing requires total insight into the customer, with the ability to respond to what the customer is doing in real time. 

Take banks for example - they may have credit card or bank account data but they are almost completely blind compared to telecom companies.  Telcos have location-based data, they see web search requests, web page views, videos watched, Apps downloaded. When telcos combine their location and insight data with banking information, the result is a really powerful understanding of each of their customers.

Location-based marketing also means picking up intelligence from the Internet of Things - billions of RFID devices, each the size of a grain of sand, capable of broadcasting data from clothing, vehicles, credit cards and so on.  It means marketing messages that change on advertising hoardings as you walk by.  Location-based marketing means an SMS to your phone as you walk around the aisles of a supermarket chain, with carefully selected special offers, based on your past purchases, other products that people like you have also liked, and on which aisle you are standing in right now.

Location-based marketing means that a telecom company sends you a welcome message as soon as your plane lands in a new country, with useful phone numbers and details of roaming charges.
