Enterprise marketers are shifting their overall digital advertising and marketing budgets more towards local tactics and campaigns. Many spend a third of their digital budgets locally, and 40% expect to increase the local mix. Much of the spending is also coming from traditional media – big brands are finally rating digital tactics such as email, social media, and digital display above television in terms of local effectiveness, and well above print or radio.
Based on Street Fight’s latest survey of multilocation brands, the report “Benchmarking and Best Practices: Enterprise Local Marketers 2017” examines current trends in their local marketing tactics, channels, and operations. By analyzing the survey data and correlating digital marketing effectiveness with spending, tactics, and management, Street Fight has identified key enterprise local marketing best practices.
Executives at large companies can use this report to compare their own company’s tactics and operations with their peers, and with those which are most effective through a self-test and scoring system. And suppliers of local marketing tech and services can better understand and match the needs of their customers.
