Small- to Medium-Sized Businesses Introduced to Innovative Advertising Solution That Connects Their Business With Customers Searching Online
ReachLocal Inc. (http://www.reachlocal.com), a leading provider of local online marketing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, announced today the opening of offices to serve local business advertisers in the greater St. Louis region.
ReachLocal provides Internet advertising services through Google, Yahoo! and MSN, to thousands of local businesses in top U.S. and international markets. ReachLocal's St. Louis direct sales force is located at 701 Emerson Rd., Creve Coeur, and operated by its regional manager, David Simpson.
"With top rankings for quality of life and affordability, the greater St. Louis region remains a stable and favorable environment for local businesses. These businesses increasingly require a means to connect with consumers who now turn to the Internet instead of offline media to search for local products and services," said Eli Apollo, ReachLocal's Area Director, Midwestern U.S. "ReachLocal connects businesses with consumers efficiently and affordably by providing a turnkey solution to paid search."
Utilizing a national and proprietary network of Internet Marketing Consultants (IMCs), ReachLocal allows SMBs to drive customer leads from major search engines to their telephone with a simple, scalable, automated and inexpensive Internet advertising solution. ReachLocal creates search campaigns through a single platform and one budget that links businesses' online advertising spend to their offline sales activities, providing true advertising ROI transparency.
"ReachLocal recognizes that brick-and-mortar businesses prefer phone calls over Web visits. That's why we steer qualified leads from the Internet directly to their telephones," said David Simpson, St. Louis' Regional Manager for ReachLocal. "ReachLocal provides a comprehensive and effective solution for handling local online advertising campaigns. At the same time, our technology allows businesses to monitor the success of each of their advertising campaigns -- online and offline -- to make sure they are fully maximizing their return on investment."
In April, ReachLocal announced the launch of its automated and proprietary TotalTrackTM product that gives local businesses a detailed view into the success of their offline and online marketing expenditures in real time.
