LiftMaster Case Study

The Challenge

Today’s consumers are reshaping the way they interact with brands across every touch point, and at every level. From national to local, it is imperative for leading national brands, like LiftMaster, to be front and center when and where their target consumer is searching for their products.

As a brand that is in-tune with market trends and their target audiences’ search and purchase behavior, LiftMaster recognized that they needed to invest in a strong local marketing strategy to show up in local search results. At the same time, LiftMaster wanted to maintain a seamless brand presence down to the local level, and compete in local markets, or risk losing a sale.


  • Invest in proven digital tactics versus heavy, untrackable traditional media
  • Grow presence in local search, while generating additional traffic and awareness
  • Activate national campaigns at the local level for more dealers without needing to bring on more staff
  • Develop and uphold a seamless and effective customer experience
