Yet generally it’s one of these two models.) * Multi-location businesses working with virtual teams (such as a marketing agency) to accomplish their marketing goals. * The benefits of working with virtual marketing teams. * Thanks to Ben Lack for being on our show!

How to Harness Your Google Business Profile to Rank High in Google
How to Harness Your Google Business Profile to Rank High in Google
In this episode, Matt Nickols (CEO of MarketSnare), Kevin Mullett (VP of Program Services at  MarketSnare), and Tim Flint (Principal and Strategist at Flint Analytics) explore various topics related to multi-location marketing, including: * Google Business Profiles (formerly known as Google My Business) can help businesses manage their online presence across Google Search and Google Maps. * How the info in your Google Business Profile ends up in Google’s “map pack” that display after potential customers search for local goods and services. Plus how the “map pack” is only viewable after some (but not all) very specific transactional intent searches are conducted. * How map packs often get around 30% of organic traffic, and the rest of the organic traffic (around 70%) usually comes from the normal Google search results shown on a page. * Two questions people think about when they search for your local goods or services via Google: Is this relevant to me? Is the distance appropriate? * The differences between informational searches and transactional searches. So, Googling “HVAC scams” is an informational search, and Google probably won’t show you a map pack. However, Googling “HVAC repairs” is a transactional search, and Google will probably show you a map pack. Thanks to our guests!

Why Organic Visibility Should Be the Foundation for Local Marketing Programs
Why Organic Visibility Should Be the Foundation for Local Marketing Programs
In this episode, Matt Nickols (CEO of MarketSnare) and Elliot Olson (Sales & Marketing Manager of MarketSnare) explore various topics related to multi-location marketing, including: * In marketing, what is organic visibility? * Organic search visibility is earned. You can’t pay to be there. * How can a company get ranked high on results of search engines such as Google and Bing? * Earned listings (which is another term for organic listings). * The art of getting ranked higher is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO). * Why local SEO is still relevant for national brands. * At the local level, consumers are often searching for a category, rather than a brand. At the national level, consumers are more often searching for a brand. * To local consumers, it often doesn’t matter if a national brand has a fantastic website. Local consumers are often more motivated to connect with local companies. * How should a marketing team split their time and effort between organic visibility and paid advertising?

Building a Foundation for Successful Location-Based Marketing
Building a Foundation for Successful Location-Based Marketing
In this episode, Matt Nickols (CEO of MarketSnare) and Elliot Olson (Sales & Marketing Manager of MarketSnare) explore various topics related to multi-location marketing, including: * The importance of marketing professionals imagining themselves working at various locations around the country. That way, you’ll see the various location-specific marketing needs of your representatives in a multi-location business. * When you’re talking with your representatives in Colorado, Texas, or Indiana, ask them location-specific questions that will ensure your local marketing programs are successful. * First you need to think about one local market only, and ask, “What do I need to do to dominate this local market?” Then, as you start putting some of those things in place, you should think, “Okay, how do we do this at scale? How do we do this in other locations?” * The value of doing marketing intel at the local level. When you do a local web search, who are the top three or four listings in the search results? How are your local competitors positioning themselves? * Doing a national customer analysis (e.g buyer personas, core value proposition, etc.), then breaking it all down to the local level. How does the average national customer look, feel, and behave compared to customers in Charlotte, Corpus Christi, and Colorado Springs? * The necessity to tailor ads to different markets. For instance, you don't want images of mountains for ads showing in Miami, and you don't want images of palm trees for ads showing in Denver.

The Challenges & Benefits of a Multi-location Marketing Strategy
The Challenges & Benefits of a Multi-location Marketing Strategy
In our debut episode, Matt and Elliot do a deep dive into: * What is multi-location marketing? * What differentiates local marketing from multi-location marketing? * What do marketing and sales professionals who are responsible for performance across various local markets need to know about multi-location marketing? * What are the benefits for you, your company, your franchisees, and your local reps when you scale local marketing programs across many locations? Matt Nickols is the CEO of MarketSnare. Elliot Olson is the Sales & Marketing Manager of MarketSnare. As co-hosts of “The Multi-Location Marketing Show,” Matt and Elliot will share stories that empower marketers to take control of local websites, business listings, reviews, social media, lead nurturing, and digital ads that deliver unrivaled results in each local market. Also explored in this episode: * How a company that had hundreds of different websites ended up butchering their brand at the local level. * The challenges that marketers face trying to market products and services at the local level across various geographic markets. * How doing multi-location marketing is a completely different universe than national marketing for a single-location brand. * Why, if you’re operating in, say, 100 markets in the US, you need to customize and personalize how you market. Just think about how customers in Miami, Denver, and Minneapolis often have very different priorities when it comes to your products and services. * How, with digital marketing and traditional marketing (e.g. direct mail, cable radio, etc.), it’s essential to make content relevant to a local market.
