If you have a physical location you’re trying to promote, local SEO will be your best friend in attracting customers. After all, what’s one of the first things people do when looking for a place of business that’s close by? They google it.

How To Use Spatially’s Custom Audiences For Rich Demographic Targeting

By Alex Andrade-Walz on April 5, 2018 at 10:15 AM

Today, we’re proud to announce the anticipated release of yet another targeting objective for local advertisers: Custom Audiences.

With Custom Audiences, advertisers can specify exactly who they want to reach in terms of demographic attributes, and Spatially’s self-serve platform will identify and target where these people live and work.

While this may sound familiar to what you can do today with age and gender targeting in Google or Facebook, we’ve taken it one step further.

By using census data and geodemographic segmentation, Spatially allows marketers to pull from a richer tapestry of demographics. Their toolbox now includes previously inaccessible attributes like income, homeownership, education, and insurancevariables that likely matter a lot more to your ideal customer persona than the simple age and gender filters you get out of the box.  

Let’s dive in.

Geofencing for Recruiters: Reach The Right Job Candidates For Less

By Alex Andrade-Walz on March 26, 2018 at 10:49 AM

Identifying and recruiting top talent can feel like a pay-to-play game. With every employer and staffing firm fighting for the same unicornsthe same full-stack developers and the same Ivy League MBAsit can be a challenge to get in front of these high-demand candidates before they’re swooped up. Job placement sites like LinkedIn and Indeed have happily stepped up to the challenge, offering recruiters the ability to jump straight to the head of the queue with premium listings... at premium costs.

But what about the employers and staffing firms that can’t shell out thousands to fill a role?

That’s where geofencing comes in.

Geofencing provides recruiters a way to bypass both premium listings and LinkedIn’s notoriously pricey job-title-targeting. It offers a level playing field for startups, small businesses, and the Fortune 500 alike. And it offers the opportunity to get in front of the perfect candidate for any job description.
