Award-winning Digital Marketing Company Named a National Winner in the Innnovation Category

MORRISVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Netsertive, a digital marketing intelligence company that brings brands and local businesses together to win local customers, today announced they were awarded the top honor at the 2016 BIA/Kelsey GOLOCAL Awards, which recognizes the best local marketing initiatives for brands, franchises and multi-location businesses. Netsertive was chosen among 10 finalists because of their groundbreaking and innovative brand-to-local strategy for digital promotions on behalf of Serta.

2016 golocal award winners

”We are thrilled and honored to be a GOLOCAL Award winner,” said Brendan Morrissey, CEO and co-founder of Netsertive. “As marketing spend shifts from traditional, evergreen advertising to seasonal promotions, these short-term campaigns are still riddled with complexities and are challenging for national brands to execute under intense time restraints in local markets. Serta is a great example of a brand that has been courageous in taking the lead and committing resources towards winning brand-to-local digital marketing strategies.”

Netsertive was named a winner in the Innovation category among several finalists. The company’s award submission, Serta Goes Digital for Labor Day Promotions, highlighted how Netsertive helped Serta drive local market sales through co-op marketing programs during the company’s National Offer campaign on Labor Day weekend 2015. Serta armed five different buying groups with search, display and retargeting ads to distribute to their local retail partners. With Netsertive’s help, Serta was able to generate and distribute dynamic landing pages, built to deliver brand-approved messaging and special Labor Day offers directly through local business’ existing websites, automating turnkey digital campaigns with advanced ad placement and customer retargeting.

GOLOCAL submissions were evaluated within three entry categories (innovation, sales/revenue and strategic use of digital marketing) to determine how effectively each program fulfilled its stated objectives, showed ingenuity and distinctiveness and exemplified skillful marketing strategy.
