Reach Residents in the most sought-after communities in The 253

We combine Niche Print + Digital Re-targeting Tactics + Social Connections to deliver highly effective Local Marketing Campaigns that help local businesses WIN

"Tra-Digital" Hyper-Local Marketing Package

We combine highly relevant Niche Print with ninja-level Digital Re-targeting Tactics and stealth Social Connections to deliver the absolute best Local Marketing solution in Tacoma! 

Niche Print

Residents of our communities freely share personal stories, celebrate achievements, and offer advice through a trusted medium that evokes a real sense of privacy & connection – our exclusive print publications written by and for the residents who live there. Kinda like Facebook in print (but without all the negative political stuff).

Digital Re-Targeting

In addition to our hyper-local print publications, advertisers connect with their ideal clients through our geo-targeted Display Advertising. With each print ad, a custom digital display ad is also created – strategically marketing the business to the same exclusive group of residents, giving them the very best market penetration both in-print and online.

Business Spotlight

We help our clients tell their story and humanize their business through a feature story all about their business. This helps build trust in their brand, so when our readers have a need for their service, they are top of mind and in their consideration set.  

This is published both in print, on our YouTube and Social Media channels, and on our website.

Social Connections

Connect with your ideal market personally rather than just advertising at them through our social events. Our social events are lighthearted and fun. Events like Wine tastings, restaurant reviews, and resident happy hours within the neighborhood.

Locals do business with companies they know, like, and trust.

"I recommend working with Mike Skiff - not only does your advertisement reach a targeted audience but you have the opportunity to meet the community via events hosted by Mike.  We have more than paid for our advertising and added some great referral companies as well."

Reach the Best Neighborhoods in Tacoma

It’s not rocket science. When a printed publication is thoroughly read-over (and held onto) by affluent communities like North End Tacoma and Browns Point, a golden opportunity exists. We are proud to offer local businesses a simple way to land in the hands of ideal customers each and every month. And it’s with the ongoing support of our advertisers that we continue to turn our neighborhood into a community!

Capture 👀 New Movers in Tacoma, Fircrest, and University Place

Moving and relocating is one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. It also creates an enormous need for information, services, and goods. Enter BeLocal Tacoma. We provide new movers with all of the info., services, resources, and reputable businesses (just like yours) at their fingertips as they move in, making their transition smooth.

New movers have a very short time-frame to create their living and spending habits for years to come; we help our business partners get in front of these new movers first, before they’ve established those habits.

The Right Communities with The Right Content

We partner with the residents of desirable communities like North Tacoma & Browns Point to produce a multimedia content experience focused on what our readers truly care about: families, kids, pets, neighborhood events, etc. Smart businesses know our neighborhoods are difficult to reach through traditional methods and love that almost all of our content comes directly from the people who live in the neighborhood. Our readers love it, because it's all about them and what they truly care about.

An Engaging, Unique Approach to Advertising

Since nearly all of our content comes directly from our readers, our business partners are confident they are being seen. Our partners know that our publications reach their ideal market and they appreciate our method of targeting their advertising directly to them. Businesses that tend to be a good fit for us rely heavily on word-of-mouth advertising and understand the true value of just a handful of connections with the right people in our community. In essence, they appreciate the ability to gain exposure and light the match toward more word-of-mouth in front of a difficult-to-reach demographic.

The Right Connections with the Right Communities

Beyond the publication itself, our business partners engage with their ideal market via digital re-targeting online, specifically in our communities. In addition, our sponsors meet our residents in the community at private social events we host for the neighborhood. This allows our partners to connect with their ideal market personally instead of just advertising at them. With a clear focus on relational marketing, our sponsors become a fabric of the community. Quite frankly, no other advertising medium allows for the access we offer our partners.
