Product

OwnLocal is a fast-scaling, profitable, and cash-flow positive company. We have extremely low churn; we've lost 4 customers ever, and are doing $7.5MM in ARR, including contracts we are on-boarding.

OwnLocal automates online advertising for more than 20,000 SMBs through 1,600+ newspaper partners in the US, Canada and Australia.

OwnLocal takes print ads and automatically converts them into search-engine optimized web ads, websites, Google SEM, social banner ads, and social-media marketing for small and medium sized businesses.

The conversion and sales are all done automatically, instantly producing more revenue for our newspaper partners.

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