Dutch Company Unveils Geo-Targeting Tool

Do you want your product offers in pesos, pounds, or dollars?

Netherlands-based Web company RealMapping announced Friday that it has launched a new product, which may make it possible to target marketing messages based on a Web site visitor’s location — including country of origin and language.

RealMapping says its two new products, RealMapping Language and RealMapping, are based on its international database that matches IP addresses with location. The company claims it has an accuracy rate of over 97.5 percent.

According to RealMapping, the IP database technology allows Internet marketers to determine the country or area from which the Web site visitors originate, the language they speak, and also whether they are students or employed at a particular company.

The company says the new technology will give online marketers the ability customize language, content, and products in real-time.

“Internet users and potential clients are being approached through Internet in the same neutral fashion and language, while our solution allows visitors to be addressed in their own language,” said Mark van der Linden, chief commercial officer of RealMapping.

Moreover, van der Linden said, the content can be adjusted to display specific information aimed at the visitor’s country of origin.

“An Englishman and an American speak the same language. However, the Englishman wants to see prices in pounds and the American in dollars,” he said.

If there are any legal restrictions in a given country, RealMapping said it is able to create restricted access to certain Web sites, pages or messages for people from that particular country.
