Ads Available

Waze currently offers two forms of advertising, branded pins and takeover ads. Branded pins are small ads embedded in the maps to show drivers how far away they are from a store. These forms of ads are less distracting for drivers and are targeted throughs impulsive buyers who may see a retail store’s pin and decide to buy a new shirt. The second form of advertising that Waze offers to their users is takeover ads. Unlike pins ads, takeover ads cover a good amount of your phone’s screen but allow advertisers to divulge information about their business. Takeover ads also give drivers the option to reroute to the location of the business, eliminate the hassle of drivers entering a new address to their navigation. Once again Waze is gearing their advertisement to impulsive buyers who may be swayed by an ad on the way to their destination.

The second form of advertising that Waze offers to their users is takeover ads. Unlike pins ads, takeover ads cover a good amount of your phone’s screen but allow advertisers to divulge information about their business. Although an ad taking over your screen may seem problematic when using navigation, Waze was able to prevent any issues by allowing the takeover ads to appear only when a driver is idle for three or more seconds and disappears once the car starts moving. Takeover ads also give drivers the option to reroute to the location of the business, eliminate the hassle of drivers entering a new address to their navigation. Once again Waze is gearing their advertisement to impulsive buyers who may be swayed by an ad on the way to their destination.

Waze Ads have been available for a little over a year and some of the big name brands like Taco Bell and  Red Roof Inn have taken advantage of their community of drivers .
