Local digital advertising is complicated to set up for businesses with multiple locations. For these types of businesses it is essential to invest in the marketing for each individual location. Today, Pay Per Click (PPC) management software dedicated to franchises or multi-location businesses make it possible to manage local marketing campaigns with this type of volume.
Why should networks advertise locally?
One major perk to being part of a national network of business is that the individual location benefits from a massive national marketing and brand strategy. Although the national strategy is great for brand awareness and online sales, without local marketing you are not engaging customers in your area at the moment they are performing a search for your products and services.
A 2019 study from Social Media Today found that 46% of all searches on Google are seeking local information. Hitting customers with localized advertisements signals that you are a business nearby that can provide them with exactly what they are searching for. By appearing at the top of their search results with an answer to their question, there is no reason for them to search further.
Local advertising is the best way to funnel customers directly to your location. In fact, depending on your business maturity, location, climate, competition, products, etc., advertising campaigns can be personalized and budgets adapted to local trends.
How to manage local campaigns for many franchise locations?
The corporate office must support its location owners. Many local business owners are experts in their own field. Most do not know how to create online advertisements with the right messaging and optimize them to perform well in their territory. If each franchisee works with their own agency, this can be a great expense to the business owner. In addition, the top-level franchisor has no control over what advertisements are being put online, both in terms of content and marketing channel.
By working with a digital marketing platform dedicated to franchises and multi-location businesses, the top-level franchisor can work with a single agency to define all campaign channels available to the local business owner. These channels could include campaigns with Google ads (Search, Display, Youtube), Facebook, and Bing.
With Adplorer’s ppc management software, business owners can log into the platform and activate the campaigns of their choice in their territory. They have the ability to decide what budget they want to spend on each campaign or let the software optimize where budget is distributed through a multi channel marketing campaign.
