Local social advertising is really hard to manage and multi-location advertisers require workflows suited for their unique challenges. Today, Skai Local announces the support of social advertising to bring the same efficiencies to local social advertising as it has already done for years for paid search.
Managing all of the aspects that go into advertising is time-consuming work. Marketers are constantly being asked to do more with less and the logistics alone can fill the day, let alone setting time aside for strategic work to grow programs such as forecasting, budget allocation, and sifting through performance data to derive insights for the creative team to build better assets.
That entire process takes plenty of time for one business, but imagine if you had dozens or even hundreds of locations? For multi-location businesses—such as auto dealerships, retailers, big box stores, fitness centers, and food chains—it’s incredibly complex and difficult.
Because of this complexity, marketers who have to manage multi-location businesses generally have to find ways to cut corners and even pass on advertising opportunities that drive great ROI simply because they don’t have the time to do them.
Skai Local creates efficiencies for local marketers
Launched in 2009, Skai Local was the first platform to introduce industry-proven enterprise search capabilities and technology into the local market. For more than a decade, Skai Local has been the leading solution to help local marketers to run and scale thousands of paid search advertising accounts through automating labor-intensive tasks such as onboarding, managing campaigns, scalable insights, and reporting.
Manage local search and local social advertising together
Today, our mission continues as we complement Skai Local’s paid search capabilities to open up social advertising to the local level.
“Local agencies and advertisers have historically had limited bandwidth, tools and incentives to scale their marketing campaigns onto Facebook, explaining why their top request has been to add social capabilities to Skai Local,” said John Dobrowolski, GM, Social, for Skai. “With Skai Local, marketers can now manage local search and social campaigns in one unified platform, and this will boost productivity and ROI with Skai’s automation and AI-based optimization solutions.”
The same, best-in-class Skai Local features that our clients know and trust to manage their search campaigns are now available for Facebook, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. In addition, cross-channel capabilities have been added to maximize productivity for both workflow and marketing investments, such as budget and optimization features that will automatically shift budgets to the best-performing segments, regardless of publisher, across Facebook, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger.
