Local Marketing Automation: Translating National Strategies into Local Execution

  1. 1. Local Marketing Automation<br />Translating National Strategies into Local Execution<br />For franchise organizations, national brands and product manufacturers<br />
  2. 2. Ask yourself the following questions:<br /><ul><li>Do your local affiliates/franchisees all have a clear and actionable local marketing strategy that leverages best practices across the entire network?
  3. 3. Are your marketing and advertising materials currently being distributed to your local affiliates/franchisees in the most effective, cost-efficient manner possible?
  4. 4. Do you have clear visibility into all local marketing efforts including creative, spend and results?
  5. 5. Are all local store-marketing efforts implemented by your affiliates/franchisees 100% in concert your national brand?</li></li></ul><li>Final Question:Has your national advertising budget shrunk over the past year?<br />You are not alone!<br />Over 87% of marketers from a broad cross-section of categories and industries have reportedly reduced their ad budgets citing the tough economic climate.*<br />* ANA (Association of National Advertisers)<br />
  6. 6. The Silver Lining….<br />As the economic climate has changed, <br />locally-produced and customized <br />advertising and marketing has become <br />more commonplace.<br />Now, your company’s overall success as a brand lies largely with your local affiliates’ and their ability to generate local demand.<br />Begging the question – what are you doing to help them?<br />
  7. 7. Unsure of how you can help them?<br />Again, you’re not alone.<br />Many national brands, product <br />manufacturers and franchisors are currently unsure of how they can – or even IF they can - help their affiliates with their local advertising and marketing efforts.<br />
  8. 8. Local Marketing Today<br />By in large, national brands are not currently equipped to enable local marketing.<br />While marketing automation has gained significant traction at a national level, distributed marketers – those responsible for enabling affiliates – have not pushed that capability down to their local markets.<br />Why not? <br />
  9. 9. The Challenge<br />The Primary Challenge:<br />Local Marketing enablement requires a high degree of service delivery, which simply doesn’t scale well without the use of specialized and fully integrated technology.<br />
  10. 10. The Challenge – Solutions?<br />Given the lack of such a scalable solution, distributed marketers have typically tried to enable local marketing in one of three ways...<br />
  11. 11. Commonly Utilized Solutions<br />Development and Distribution of Creative Assets<br />Multiple Platforms House Various Creative Assets<br />Centralized Development, Planning and Execution<br />
  12. 12. Development and Distribution of Creative Assets<br />In this model, the national brand develops creative assets and distributes them to their affiliates with the assumption that they’ll be used locally. <br />This is the least effective method because it leaves the affiliate on their own to find vendors, develop local marketing plans, negotiate rates and implement their marketing efforts. <br />This also puts the national brand at the greatest risk<br />for off-brand messaging and communications.<br />Commonly Utilized Solutions<br />
  13. 13. Multiple Platforms House Various Creative Assets<br />In this model, the national brand contracts with a variety of vendors to create platforms where affiliates can access and customize approved marketing materials. <br />While this model helps to reduce some of the customization and implementation costs on the affiliate, it comes with three major drawbacks…<br />Commonly Utilized Solutions<br />
  14. 14. Drawbacks:<br /><ul><li>The affiliate is required to access multiple systems to implement their marketing activities, which significantly hinders affiliate participationand nearly eliminates the possibility of true integrated campaigns.
  15. 15. The organization is tied into specific back-end vendors for fulfillment, which often leads to less-than-desirable pricing and service.
  16. 16. Relies on the local business to provide this high-level strategic perspective thus, lacking a comprehensive strategic approach to the planning and buying of local media and marketing fulfillment </li></ul>Commonly Utilized Solutions<br />
  17. 17. 3. Centralized Development, Planning and Execution<br />In this model, the national brand manages all marketing material development, strategic media/marketing planning and local-level marketing implementation. <br />The challenge in this model is that it takes all local knowledge and power out of the hands of the affiliate to affect their local demand generation efforts. Additionally, when the affiliate does try to augment the national efforts, they are not armed with the skills or materials to so effectively.<br />Commonly Utilized Solutions<br />
  18. 18. So, you may be wondering - If all of these so-called ‘solutions’ have irrefutable drawbacks, what other option(s) are there?<br />
