Why choose a local marketing company?
Many big brands already have in house marketing teams who know the brands they represent and their target market inside out. If your business operates on a National or even International level, it may be rare that you need to drill down in to your audience data and target only those based in a specific location. However, store launches, local events and promotions may all require targeting people living in or visiting a location you’ve never visited or have limited knowledge of. This is where enlisting the help of local marketers can be beneficial.
What kinds of campaigns could use local marketing knowledge?
National brand power and local marketing knowledge can be a powerful combination, harnessing the brand values and recognition of an industry leading company, along with the local expertise of an experienced agency.
Bar and restaurant or store openings, PR launches and event promotion can all benefit from regional knowledge and connections, which are otherwise lengthy to research and impractical to implement without local support.
