What is localized marketing?

Localized marketing is the process of creating and implementing a marketing strategy that is distributed at the local level. Rather than creating a generic marketing strategy that is used nationwide, localized marketing tailors marketing efforts to local communities. Optimizing engagement through localized marketing makes it easier for customers to find a local retailer to buy your products and services.

Keep consumers immersed in your brand experience.

Studies show that 85 percent of consumers conduct online research before making a purchase, and 70 percent of these consumers use a store locator as part of their research process (Source: Nielsen; Oberlo eCommerce Report 2019). Reduce friction to purchase by delivering a branded and localized consumer journey across thousands of search-optimized dealer locator pages. By keeping your brand top of mind while the consumer searches for a local dealer, they’re more likely to convert to in-store customers.

Consistency for your brand.

We get it, as a marketer you have the unique challenge of remaining top of mind with both your customers and dealers. Your dealers already sell multiple, often competing products, so it is crucial to remain at the forefront of this partnership by empowering them with marketing technology that amplifies your brand message and drives business into locations.


With SOCi, you can easily manage content on search and social platforms across your entire brand — at the national and local level.
