The digital marketing landscape in Turkey is currently in a serious state of disruption. Smart phones have become the most broadly used device for shoppers and searchers when looking for a product, information or a service. It is this Location-Based Engagement (LBE) that is driving customers to the doors of businesses and brand owners in Turkey.
SoLoMo is an acronym for three words we all know very well, Social, Local and Mobile. The SoLoMo concept in its most basic form, is the foundation of a comprehensive "check list" any forward thinking marketing professional or business owner would employ as a guide to ensuring that their point of sale (POS) both physical and virtual is easily discoverable on a wide variety of social networks, local and mobile search platforms as well as online and mobile mapping applications including connected and non-connected in-car navigation systems, PND's and navigation apps.
SoLoMo empowers a brand or business owner to ensure that their one or many thousands of business points of sale can be found on literally hundreds of various platforms in Turkey and around the world that their customers are using to search for products, brands and services everyday. In Turkiye, platforms like Google Maps, Facebook, Yandex Maps, Foursquare, Google.com.tr, Yandex.com.tr, Nokia Maps, Twitter, Linkedin, TripAdvisor, TomTom Places and Yellow.com.tr are essential platforms in facilitating enormous amounts of location-based engagement activities everyday. Both smb's and brand owners need to take control of their physical and virtual points of sale - using SoLoMo as a guide will most certainly help them accomplish that.
