Why HyperLocal Hyperlocal content and advertising will allow Evolution Magazine to hone our message so that it targets those people who share a neighborhood, or even an ethnicity within that neighborhood. It is our goal to not waste time and dollars trying to appeal to everybody. Rather, we seek to create messages that appeal directly to the local group we are targeting. For example, a hyperlocal ad could read, “Why shop on Fifth Avenue when your neighbors at the Oak Avenue Boutique have the clothes and prices to fit your lifestyle?” We can create hyperlocal ads in neighborhood that are designed to appeal to specific neighborhoods.
It is our goal to provide advertising that builds relationships which can create repeat business for our advertisers. Hyperlocal advertising can invite people to get to know our sponsors and by coming to your place of business or visiting your website (featuring photos of the neighborhood) to find out who you are. The goal of hyperlocal advertising model is to convey that advertisers and their customers share common tastes and values. This can build lasting relationships. Sponsored Content – Allows Advertisers to share content and information regarding their brand through the Evolve Media Group’s network of digital and printed magazines. They will do this through a series of informative pieces designed to build brand value and recognition. Content Marketing Solutions - Included in the sponsored content opportunity is the advertising for content program. We still remain focused on our goal to educate business owners on the importance of content marketing. We seek to use this opportunity to reach out to content marketers and gain access to other sources of high level content. Video interviews – Allows advertisers to gain exposure by way of video content. Video content is very important to the marketing process. Through strategic relationships Evolve Media can prepare video content on a hyperlocal - national level.

Cost Effective Approach
Our hyperlocal advertising model will provide our advertisers with a more cost effective solution because it is targeted and reaches fewer people. This will allows us the opportunity to place more ads that will appeal to local viewers. In addition this will allow Evolution Magazine to track the effectiveness of your hyperlocal ad campaign by asking customers to answer questions and complete surveys. We will measure how far our advertiser’s hyperlocal advertising dollars are going
