Who are the people most likely to walk-in to your business today and make a purchase? According to BrightLocal's survey, chances are that the majority of your customers live within 15-20 miles of your business (Screenwerk). That equates to around a 17 minute drive.
How does this change the way you market to your target audience?
Whatever the size of your business, you don’t want to waste time and money marketing to a group that already considers you too far to travel to.
Instead of wasting money on expensive newspaper ads or radio commercials (that may or may not reach your target audience), you could use SendTree, a group text messaging service, to connect with customers.
