New Report Recognizes Top Brands for Digital Visibility

SOCI’s benchmark localized marketing report shows how 300 multi-site brands are performing across all channels, with McAlister’s Deli, uBreakiFix, Bar Louie and more leading the pack

SAN DIEGO, April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SOCIETY, the marketing platform for multi-site brands, highlights top performing companies and how they compare head-to-head in recent post 2022 Localized Marketing Benchmark Report (LMBR)announcement earlier this month. The top performers received the highest local viewability scores from SOCi, another accolade in the battle for consumer visibility across the most influential digital channels.

A high local visibility score indicates an organization’s commitment to its customers and the communities it serves. Performance is determined by the company’s ability to outperform the competition in the areas of search, reviews and social engagement. The local visibility achieved through the deployment of a holistic digital strategy that utilizes these three focus areas is critical to a brand’s success and truly distinguishes top-performing businesses from those still developing a digital presence.

At Bar Louie, no experience should be exactly the same and we let the dynamic that shape our communities, advance our vision.This is the essence of location marketing strategy, and we continue to make it our goal every day.
