There is an increasing demand to reach local customers for businesses who are advertising with Google. Many business owners and marketing professionals know that their target audience is likely right in their backyard, thus creating high demand for hyper-local ad campaigns. One tool that customers use to find local businesses is Google Maps. Google Maps has proven to be an easy-to-use, user-friendly platform by matching up local businesses with a user’s search query – and now you can add another dimension to targeting by enabling Local Search Ads within Google Maps.
Digital marketers who advertise on Facebook are familiar with these platforms being very particular on the amount of text that are in advertisements. To ensure a great user experience, Facebook instituted a rule that said only 20% of your ad can be text-based.
