Product

OwnLocal is a fast-scaling, profitable, and cash-flow positive company with extremely low churn--losing only 2 customers ever--and tracking to do $7.5MM in ARR this year.

OwnLocal automates online advertising for more than 47,000 SMBs through our 1,800+ newspaper partners in the US, Canada and Australia.

OwnLocal takes print ads & automatically converts them into SEO web ads, websites, Google SEM, social banner ads, & social-media marketing for SMBs.

Conversion & sales are done automatically--instantly producing more revenue for our publishers.

OwnLocal succeeds where others have failed because community newspapers are still trusted local brands in the small-business world.

Finally, we're not like traditional ad tech, reselling other platforms with low margins, our average margins are 82% as we are reselling our owned and operated inventory.
