It’s been a busy few weeks in eLocal Land. We have been working on a number of very exciting projects and now we are proud to launch them all pretty much at the same time. First I’d like to draw your attention to the site you are looking at. Every day we get thousands of local businesses found on line, we are their public face on the Internet. Much in the same way that the Cobbler’s children have holes in their shoes, sometimes the online guys are so busy making their customers look great that they don’t have enough hours in the day to brush up on their own site. We are proud to launch a completely new site designed to provide valuable information for current customers, future customers, business partners, and investors. Whether you are a small business owner, a marketing professional or a local publisher we hope you will find our new site a useful guide to getting the search visibility you need to move your business forwards.
We have also recently launched our Clicks2Calls program and already it is a terrific success. Over the last few years we have emerged as the leading provider of Local Internet Marketing Solutions. During this time one theme that has very clearly emerged from our experience is that local businesses know the value of a lead, and they want to squeeze every last dime out of their local marketing budget. In response we have launched our Clicks2Call program. To put it with this program, you don’t pay a thing until we make your phone ring. This approach to Internet Marketing makes a lot of sense, especially for business which are highly focused on leads. In addition our Quick Glance Dashboard allows our customers to track the calls they have received and even listen to the calls that we generate for them.
The last three years has seen incredible growth and changes in the Local Search space and while eLocal Listing has both lead and responded to changes in the way consumers search and businesses are found, we have stayed true to our mission to “provide value to our customers by driving leads to them through local search.” Our new Clicks2Calls Solutions reflects our on-going commitment to providing value with measurable, affordable, and effective Lead Generation solutions utilizing the reach of Local Search.
As President and CEO of eLocal Lisitng, I have never been as excited as I am today with the direction of our company and our product. Our team is comprised of the best and most dedicated staff in the industry and we are ideally placed to make the second half of 2010 enormously successful for our customers, employees and investors.
Our new site, new products, and new logo reflect our commitment to pioneering Local Search solutions and I look forward to the prospects that the second half of 2010 bring to all of us.
