National and regional businesses see local – advertising, marketing, promotions and services – as an opportunity to drive more relevant engagement with their customers.
Market research is backing up this assertion. BIA/Kelsey’s U.S. Local Media Forecast projects that locally-targeted spend by national businesses (brands, franchises, dealer/manufacturer networks and other multi-location enterprises) will grow to $52.9 billion by 2017. And, nearly two-thirds of national brands declare that they currently invest in local marketing.
One component that will be key to supporting the projected growth is the ability of brands to implement a scalable, digital marketing solution across their national-local networks.
Scheduling software has seen its ups and downs. But it is currently poised to take off, due to the emergence of a cloud-based environment marked by on-the-go mobile services and scheduling’s integration with email, point of sale systems and billing. Indeed, scheduling has been seen as a key connector for the next phase of closed loop marketing. At the top of the sales funnel, it is directly associated with search and discovery.
