Location3 is a digital marketing agency that specializes in driving local, regional and national performance for franchise systems and multi-unit businesses. The firm provides a comprehensive range of integrated digital marketing services and solutions, including media planning and buying, pay-per-click, search engine optimization, content marketing, location data and listings management, and social media advertising.

According to the firm’s website, “[Location3 has] extensive experience in tailoring marketing strategies that not only target the right audiences, but also ensure that your brand’s message resonates at a local level, converting more customers in each and every market you do business… These services are designed to drive brand awareness, foster customer loyalty, and stimulate revenue growth for our clients.” 

The History of Location3

Location3 was established in 1999 by founder Andrew Beckman and has since grown into a team of more than 80 people. The firm, which is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has worked in the franchising space for more than 20 years,  partnering with more than 55 brands and supporting over 50,000 franchisees and business locations.

Location3’s list of clients features a variety of recognized brands, including CarQuest Auto Parts, JAN-PRO, UFC Gym, Mathnasium* and more. 

How Location3 Stands Out

Location3's ability to serve as a bridge between franchisees and franchisors is what sets it apart from its competitors. The firm partners with franchisors to support franchisees at a local level through data-driven strategies that help owners and operators overcome challenges and, ultimately, scale their business.

“What differentiates Location3 from other digital marketing agencies is how we blend innovative and incisive technology with experienced, easy-to-work-with professionals who understand the complexities of franchising and the multi-unit business model and know that a brand’s success isn’t as much about what happens in the corporate office as it is about what happens in every local market they serve.”

Location3 aims to act as an extension of its client’s teams, whether you’re a large brand with corporate-owned locations or a franchisor supporting your franchisees. The firm has made a name for itself by creating beneficial strategic partnerships and digital marketing strategies that enable business owners to achieve their goals.

“Our approach is deeply personalized, allowing us to craft smart marketing strategies that target the right audiences with the right messaging at the right time,” Location3 says on its website. “This emphasis on partnership and personalization is at the heart of our success in digital marketing.”

Why Choose Location3?

Location3 offers businesses of all sizes a comprehensive package of digital marketing solutions that go beyond media buying, tactical execution and data collection. In addition to providing services through its in-house digital marketing team, the firm also makes use of LOCALACT, a proprietary local marketing platform that gives business owners the software and support they need to advertise their businesses online and understand local marketing performance metrics; ultimately, this helps drive new customers to their business and increase their bottom line.

“When you combine the focused, engaged team of people who can offer insight, support, and guidance with our hyper-localized technology, you add power and scale to your brand’s digital marketing that works to make each store its own success story.” 

Future of Digital Marketing

With more than two decades of experience and an impressive track record of working with some nationally-recognized brands, Location3 has become a leading digital marketing agency with a trusted reputation for helping franchise systems and multi-unit businesses thrive in the digital landscape.
