Automated advertising to SMBs through local media (Y Combinator W10)
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.
