In Market Audience Targeting

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'd like to set up an ad campaign that targets an in market audience, but only people who are currently visiting one particular city (not people who live there). I've gone through trying to set it up, but am not finding a way to select the ads to only be shown to people in the city who do not live there. Is this possible?

Hi @Monique M,

 

 "...the ads to only be shown to people in the city who do not live there....?"

 

Negative, it's not possible.What you can do is target users by their location and device. Language targeting may also help if the typical visitor speaks a different language. E.g. many visitors in Paris speak German or English.

 

Best,

Lakatos
