Hyperlocal Advertising Strategies for SMBs | Design for Mobile | Scoop.it
Advertising - Most SMBs may not realize that it is possible—and affordable—to target relevant consumers in close proximity to their stores by using an online, neighborhood-level targeting approach.

Have I got a deal for you! | Tom Koulopoulos | Design for Mobile | Scoop.it
