Location3 client Mountain Mike’s Pizza and their franchisees face significant competitive challenges when advertising on Google, which ultimately requires the need to be both incredibly efficient with campaign setup and incredibly precise when managing bids and local budgets. A quick Google keyword search for “pizza near me” in Mountain Mike’s home state of California yields over 58,000,000 results (“pizza delivery” yields 56,000,000) and often features a predictable set of ad results from industry giants like Domino’s and Pizza Hut, among others.
Suffice it to say that buying “pizza”-related terms in AdWords can get incredibly expensive, incredibly quickly, if a local franchisee’s budgets and bids are not managed with precision. When you combine that fact with limited location-level advertising budgets, our team atLocation3 was presented with a significant challenge in helping Mountain Mike’s Pizza generate increases in customer pizza orders while simultaneously ensuring that ad spen

Ironically, the most important business decisions are too often based not on the best available data and analysis, but on the judgment calls of HIPPOs — the highest-paid people in the organization. In large part, these individuals became HIPPOs in the first place because, over the course of their professional careers, their intuition and gut feel has tended to be more right than wrong.
This approach may have sufficed in simpler, slower-moving times. But modern enterprises are too connected and too fast-paced for important business decisions to be made strictly on individual intuition and gut feel. For better-informed decision-making, your organization’s decision-makers need timely access to information they can rely on.
While the legal requirements to provide employees with paid or unpaid leave for family and medical issues become more complex, the leave-management tools and services available to employers continue to expand.
Employers with the budget to do so are outsourcing—often to a single vendor—leave-management tasks for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state and local leave ordinances, according to recently released findings from a survey of 1,203 employers conducted in 2017. Employers with the resources to manage leave internally are increasingly using technology to assist them.

Founded in 2000, Trupanion is a Seattle-based company that provides allinclusive medical insurance policies for pet owners. A challenge for insurance companies is the need to quickly process claims to determine whether a claim should be paid automatically. In the comparatively small world of medical insurance for cats and dogs, however, only about 1% of pet owners hold insurance policies. Most veterinarians expect pet owners to cover the full bill for their pets’ treatment, making the insurance claims process a manual and time-consuming effort.
Marketers accept that social media is now a fundamental part of brand building, but putting that theory into action is still a challenge as many struggle with how to use social engagement effectively. Social efforts do not represent a standalone solution and need the scale and consistency of paid and owned media.
What you don’t know could hurt you. From short-term family leave that only Vermont offers to leave that 25 states offer for victims of crime and violence, the land of unusual leaves is full of potential pitfalls and hazards for HR.
If you don’t know the diverse landscape of personal and family leaves that states allow, you run the risk — and could face the potential consequences — of noncompliance, reduced productivity, and employee disengagement.
It doesn’t matter if your goals involve brand awareness, functional association, or demand generation. Brands that fail to integrate an earned media strategy with paid and owned media strategies are missing key opportunities to influence the buyer’s journey. If you ignore earned media channels, you do so at the risk of missing that ideal customer.
In this white paper, we’ll outline the top three reasons you need an integrated approach — that includes PR — to achieve great brand awareness
