While advertisers see value in local mediaa because of their market proximity and unique relationship with communities, many find their digital expertise to be a barrier.

“Local media companies should prioritise equipping their teams with digital sales training, so they can more effectively provide advertisers with campaign recommendations and insights, as well as serve as credible consultative partners,” Wills said.

Local media companies should also focus on developing more streamlined processes and campaign reports that are timely, intelligible and solutions-oriented. (IANS)
