eBook: Stand out from the crowd with location marketing.

Location-based marketing is a powerful tool, connecting small businesses to customers who are both nearby and want to buy. Typically people who search locally have already done their broader online research and are now ready to make a move, either through a purchase or store visit.

But what exactly do we mean when we say ‘location marketing’? In a nutshell, a location marketing strategy involves marketing tactics designed to geo-target customers based on their location. These tactics are aimed at boosting your business’ visibility with customers who are in your area.

This relatively new type of marketing has evolved thanks to the internet and smartphone technology and comes in a number of forms including local search, mapping tools, paid advertising and social media geo-targeting.
