In other words, it is the use of geolocation (geographic location) in the process of planning and implementing marketing activities.

Location-based marketing is seen every day, from ads on Google to "shop alerts" when to step inside a specific store's range. In fact the opportunities for marketing through geofencing are huge, and they continue to grow as time goes on.
