A LA$R (Local Ad Spend Report) identifies specific business categories in a chosen market that are most likely to produce online ad sales. They detail the revenue opportunities and give managers a foundation for making consultative sales presentations to prospects in those categories. The ad spend figures can be used to budget sales and estimate ROI for your online operations.
