What Location, Coffee Shops, and Sabertooth Tigers Can Teach You About Landing More Paying Customers

By Alex Andrade-Walz on July 18, 2018 at 1:38 PM

 

10,000 years ago, the world was a much more dangerous place, and so we formed tribes to protect ourselves from starving to death, becoming a tiger’s next meal, or being attacked by neighboring invaders.

As these tribes grew, they began speaking in the same tongue, eating the same foods, enjoying the same things and sharing the same beliefs –– thus culture was formed.

Today we no longer have to worry about being eaten by a sabertooth. In fact, for most of us, our biggest daily concern is successfully hunting down an elusive Wi-Fi password.

Yet, regardless of the fact that the world is much safer than it once was, we still find ourselves forming tribes… a phenomenon that is extremely important to be aware of if you are a marketer or business owner.

 

Why tribes matter for brands of all shapes and sizes.

Should You Include Call-Only Ads in Your Local Advertising Campaign?

By Guest Author on June 11, 2018 at 2:10 PM

Although some people shy away from talking on the phone nowadays, it doesn’t mean call-only ads have no place in your local advertising campaign. Call-only ads are different from AdWords’ call extensions and warrant further research for even the smallest of businesses.

Since calling a representative usually takes less time than looking through rabbit holes of information on a company's website, call-only ads enhance user experience while making your conversion funnel more efficient at the same time.

Plus, phone calls are much more personal than any internet search. So even though talking on the phone may seem old school, is it too archaic to be included in your local advertising campaign? As you’ll come to find out, call-only ads do deserve a callback for your local marketing strategies.

How to Create a Successful Ad Campaign on Google Ads

By Bruna Indalecio on April 9, 2018 at 11:10 AM

There are several aspects that compose a successful Google Ads campaign. It's important to set up your ads properly and constantly measure and test your ads to boost your results.

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.
