With 72 percent of consumers searching for local information on a smartphone visiting a store or location within five miles (and likely within five to ten minutes), the local marketing opportunity is clear. But local marketing consists of more than just optimized pages and listings — it’s a complex ecosystem that is always on and always changing. Many marketers struggle to take advantage of the local marketing opportunity because of its complex nature.

Enter the local marketing adoption curve. By taking a phased crawl, walk, run approach to building a comprehensive, cross-functional local marketing program, brands can be more visible, relevant and engaging in the eyes of their consumers and, ultimately, drive customer acquisition across hundreds to thousands of locations.
