While working with operators of local businesses a trend has emerged.  They have attended seminars, made inquiries, expressed their strategies and goals to reach and grow their client base but instead of acting on marketing and advertising proposals they have sometimes have opted to do it themselves.  Whether it is building their own website, developing their own loyalty program with an email marketing tool or optimizing their business to be found on search, more and more operators are doing it themselves rather than hiring someone to do it for them.  This makes sense to many who have the need to stretch every dollar as far as it can go. Cash is precious for the small business!

LocalLook has launched its first powerful and unique do it yourself marketing tool.  A self service desktop and mobile system which enables a business operator to build and circulate an ad without talking to a media company or agency.  The ad is built automatically using graphics associated with the business from their web site, social media pages and other advertising.  It can be edited to convey any current promotional message (new ads if already built can also be uploaded) and then circulated to a target audience via web and mobile media according to location, business category, search terms, age and gender.  Campaigns can be set for any budget with results viewable via a custom dashboard. LocalLook, with its technology partner iPromote uses the latest programmatic display tools to circulate your message on media sites, mobile apps and social media that your target customers utilize daily.  It is simply the most efficient and economical way for a local business to reach new clients with a promotional message!
