Why we started LocalRave to do internet marketing for small businesses?

LocalRave began after seeing that the advertising print directories and old school marketing methods charge small businesses between $30,000 to $200,000 for ineffective marketing techniques. Noticing the desperate need for small businesses hurting from the economic collapse of 2008 and realizing that internet marketing is more efficient, trackable, and cost-effective, LocalRave began with the philosophy that internet marketing is the answer for every small business and medium-sized business to gain customers affordably. Internet marketing drives customers who are looking for your small business.
