There are over 28 Million local small businesses in the U.S. alone…and a majority of them desperately need marketing help!
As a Local Partner with Local Business Spotlight, you can help small businesses in your area to prosper from the Internet, by helping them build an Internet presence, gain customers/clients, and ultimately increase their revenue!
Local Business Spotlight is a unique local small business directory that offers more than the usual listings, ratings, reviews, and maps.
Oh, we offer those tools as well, but we go one BIG step further by publishing one-on-one interviews with the business owners.
They love telling their story and talking about their business! In fact, they welcome the opportunity with open arms because it’s a chance to tell their story and have it published to the world for free.
Three Reasons Why Interviews Are VERY POWERFUL:
1. They help consumers learn more about businesses that are available in their area.
For the consumer, what better way is there to get to know more about the businesses in their area, than through hearing from the business owners themselves?
2. The Interview content helps the website rank higher in Search Engine Results Pages(SERP’s).
By adding fresh, quality content, to a website on a regular basis, it tells Google and other search platforms that the site is a valuable source for the information their searchers are looking for. The result, a first page rank on the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP’s.)
3. Since the Interviews are free, they help our partners to get through the Gatekeeper, and build a powerful relationship with the business owner, right from the start!
Business Owners are very busy people. As a result, one of the biggest challenges for B2B sales professionals is to get past the Gatekeeper.
The Gatekeeper is the person(s) the business owner has instructed to handle the less important tasks of answering the phone, reading emails, etc.
When you advise them this is NOT a sales call, it’s a FREE Interview Request, that changes everything. They are more than willing to be seen.
Although we do not charge for the interviews, there are four revenue streams available on the website. As a Partner, you can create an exceptional income. And, it’s a recurring income, month after month!
How much money can you earn?
It’s entirely up to you, and dependent on how much time and effort you apply. (Each directory edition has the potential for over $500,000 annual ad revenue when sold out at full value)
In addition to the revenue which is available on the website itself, there are many Additional Revenue Sources Available.
They include, but are not limited to, a Viral Marketing System that brings in hundreds of NEW CUSTOMERS a day.
And a Lead Generation Platform which includes Landing Pages that actually generate New Clients for Service Type Businesses!
How big can you dream!
A partner has exclusive rights to the city/town they are contracted for. No other partners can conduct business in that city/town.
All ad revenues are split on a 50/50 basis. Partners get 50% of the gross revenue from the city/town they represent.
After revenue reaches the $50,000 annual threshold it increases to 60/50 where the partner gets 60%.
Then once it reaches $100,000 annually, where is a probability you will need to hire staff, it goes to a 75/25 split and the Partner receives 75%.
There is an initial investment of $300 to set up the Directory Edition for the contracted city/town, and for training.
There is also a monthly investment of $100 per Edition(city), with a discounted annual payment option of $1000. This covers the website maintenance, the insertion of content such as Interviews and Ads, and ongoing support.
NOTE: If the monthly fee is paid via the annual option, the $300 setup fee is waived.
