Locala™ Advertising

Experience the impact of personal and brand storytelling.

Top-of-mind marketing is a vital component of any successful marketing strategy, helping businesses keep their brand at the forefront of customers' minds. This technique boosts brand awareness, generates leads, and drives sales, ultimately helping businesses gain a competitive edge in their respective markets.

Creating an emotional connection with customers is one of the primary benefits of top-of-mind marketing. By consistently reminding customers of their brand, businesses can create a sense of familiarity and trust, which can lead to repeat business and positive word-of-mouth marketing.

While measuring the impact of top-of-mind marketing can be challenging, it's crucial to track brand awareness surveys and customer retention rates to gauge its effectiveness. Though it may take some time to see results, businesses that prioritize top-of-mind marketing can ultimately stand out in crowded markets and see long-term success.

Our feature story is the highlight of the magazine. A four- to eight-page story of people from our community.

Each issue, we focus on expanding our content by offering the reader a chance to view (or listen to) the original interview that we recorded in our podcast studio. We include 2 stories or more with this feature.

Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell.
