Monday: Location-based marketing is great for more relevant ad serving to your local audience. Smith.ai wrote a blog post about the differences between geofencing and geotargeting. The main tips for using both are to make sure your marketing matches the language/lingo and attitude of the location your trying to reach.
Tuesday: Stakeholders who are hesitant to stray from traditional methods can be a hard sell when it comes to embracing newer marketing tactics. The Carney team wrote a blog post on tips for how to convince an old-fashioned team to embrace modern marketing. Overall, it’s just about treating it like a target audience. You have to research, ask questions, and speak the right language to convert them.

Luckily, CallRail put together a helpful guide to Google Analytics 4 with step-by-step instructions for making reports and GTM in this GA version.
Thursday: Google has pushed the official deadline for the full ban of third-party cookies to 2024. But that doesn’t mean marketers shouldn’t be trying to adapt now.
