Weather has a profound impact on how consumers behave. Their needs, interests, and purchasing decisions often change based on the weather outside. It can shape decisions on what they eat, where they go, and what they buy.
While weather data is commonly leveraged to deliver forecasts across television screens, websites, and mobile apps, this data can also be used to help marketers execute hyper-targeted, contextually relevant advertising.
Weather data refers to the information collected from weather tracking tools, providing details about conditions in the atmosphere and the weather patterns such conditions create. Data points include details on temperature, humidity, precipitation and beyond.
Weather provides a uniquely tangible and experiential contextual layer to your marketing. Harnessing its power allows marketers to go beyond generic approaches and deliver ad experiences that are tailored to a consumer’s specific environment. By recognising the influence weather can have on consumer decisions, marketers can align their strategies to capitalise on these trends and create meaningful interactions that stimulate consideration and purchase.
By incorporating weather data into your targeting strategy, you can capitalise on the power of context to tailor messages, product offerings, and promotional campaigns to suit the unique needs of various targets. Benefits include, but certainly are not limited to:
Imagine your client, a leading global airline, has just announced the launch of a new route to the sunny, crystal clear waters of the Maldives.
Layer weather data over demographic data and reach your audience of affluent, luxury-seeking heads of households in geos experiencing less-than-ideal weather conditions.
Place vivid images and punchy Maldivian messaging programmatically across digital screens where city-dwellers are trekking through a snowy commute or reach suburban moms on their tablets while they’re stuck inside on a rainy day.
The combinations are endless, the impact is enormous.

Weather data at your fingertips
Weather data is available as part of Adsquare’s geo-contextual based Proximity Targeting solution.
Proximity Targeting is a powerful tool to incorporate into your campaign planning.

Here’s how to make the most of it:
Privacy complaint by design
Geo-contextual Proximity Targeting is a strategy that doesn’t heavily rely on personal data. Instead, it focuses on the user’s current activity or content consumption. This approach offers broad targeting to multiple users rather than individualised targeting. During the bidding process, Adsquare enhances the user’s location data with relevant spatial information, making geo-contextual targeting a privacy-friendly targeting solution that functions without the need for user IDs.
