Jun 07,2023

Continuing our dive into marketing automation this month’s article explores marketing automation from a different perspective – outsourced teams, expertise, and strategies that help brands to stand out. Marketing Automation is critical to combatting LMM. Dealing with local marketing challenges can be quite daunting for brands. It often leads to uncoordinated execution and a decline in brand consistency. At UMI Marketing Solutions, we understand the root causes of this mayhem and have practical solutions to help you break free from the cycle. With our expertise and innovative strategies, we can empower your local marketers to operate more effectively while enabling your headquarters to focus on strategic initiatives.

Understanding the Local Marketing Landscape:

When it comes to local marketing, there are two distinct realms. On one side, we have an efficient and consistent world of brand agencies that are partnered with creative teams. This is where ideas are transformed into execution, generating valuable insights and driving strategies. On the other side, we find the local world, where operators often lack autonomy and rely on various vendors and corporate feedback loops creating dead-ends and leading to inefficiencies across locations.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle:

At UMI Marketing Solutions, we recognize the cyclical nature of local marketing mayhem and have devised effective strategies to help you break free from its grip. Our approach starts by creating shared resources that foster brand consistency and enable seamless collaboration between headquarters and local markets.

Consistency is the cornerstone of successful local marketing, and that’s why we place great emphasis on establishing clear guidelines and standards.
