1. Create a Guide for Local Content

Connect with your local audience by providing content they will find useful and interesting. Consider what information will specifically help or engage the customers living around your business, and publish it on your blog or social media platforms. This type of content attracts attention from nearby audiences and helps you build brand exposure and loyalty.

2. Run a Contest

Contests are a great way to connect with local customers. Contest marketing builds brand awareness and supports lead generation strategies. You collect a phone number or email address for each customer that enters so you can build your customer contact list and create powerful remarketing campaigns that reconnect with interested audiences. 

See how Q-Zar ran a contest that encouraged interested audiences to sign up by entering their phone number for a chance to win a family fun pack. This strategy helps get their brand in front of local audiences and also helps build their text marketing initiatives as they collect customer contact information they can use for future promotions. 

3. Get Featured Content in Local Publications

Another way to get your name out in your local community is through featured articles in local news outlets, papers, or websites. Local press coverage can reach entirely new local audiences who you have never connected with before.  

There are many examples of brands doing this on 813area.com.
