While the two organizations have partnered on franchise marketing initiatives since February 2016, today’s announcement highlights the centralization of marketing strategy under Location3 management including all advertising and media buying across channels such as linear television, connected television, radio, digital audio & video, national paid media, hyper-local franchisee paid media, location data management and more.
