SAN DIEGO, CA, February 28, 2017 /FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE/ — Yesterday FreshLime was awarded first place in the prestigious Local Search Association Ad-to-Action Award for Attribution & Analytics. There were over 172 entries in the 11 categories, FreshLime edged out the competition in this key category focused on marketing attribution. Jay Bean presented a case study that shows the significant value of data insights to the panel and audience at the annual LSA Event Feb 27.
“As the number of entries shows, digital marketers and advertisers are waking up to the critical importance of local and location-based marketing,” said LSA President Neg Norton. “This is our most successful award program to date, and it reflects that the industry is now on a path of continuous innovation.”
“When we started FreshLime our #1 priority was helping small business owners compete on a level playing field with big businesses with bigger budgets. Attribution has not always been available for small, local business owners, and analytics have been confusing and unhelpful at the local business level,” stated FreshLime CEO Jay Bean. “This award validates the hard work we have put into building an innovative platform that helps small business owners connect all of their marketing efforts to customer transactions. This enables the business to easily see their true ROI and enables them to focus efforts on the channels that drive the most profit.”
Judges for the Ad-to-Action Awards were asked to judge nominees on driving customer engagement, sales calls, clicks, store visits, appointment bookings, etc. Award Judge Sherry Thomas-Zon, product management, mobile at Macy’s said about the group of companies for 2017, “The number of submissions and sheer caliber of the solutions pushing to further blur the lines between digital and physical channels is impressive.”
