Location-based listening & action • Twitter – Geo-targeted (promoted) Tweets to let consumers know about retail offers that vary on a store-by-store or city-by-city basis. • Facebook Local Search – discoverability based on friends recommendations, ratings, location-tags and likes. Include coupons, deals and share promotions on those pages. • All social – align escalation and “engagement” protocols, online-to-offline, offline-to-online.
