What Locals Are Saying

I have been impressed with the LocalsGuide as a resource for the Rogue Valley Community and it has done wonders for my business. After my interview and ad I received over 40 client conversations, calls, and/or inquiries about my business just in the first 3 weeks! Now that’s effective advertising!

One of the main factors in the success of my new business is my work with the LocalsGuide. If you want to see your business grow, LocalsGuide is the way to go. 


Matt C.

The interview and adds I had in the LocalsGuide produced far more new clients for me than any other advertising than I have ever done. The interviews are a great way for people to get to know about you and the nature of your business in way that print adds alone could never do.

Animal Kind - Veterinary

Jeffery J, DVM

With one interview and two monthly ads I was set with work for over two years. That is how much of an impact three months with LocalsGuide gave me, I received 25 calls from the interview alone from people who were interested in my services.

Christopher N.

My recent feature in the LocalsGuide was a huge success! It gave me the opportunity to share in depth about myself and my healthcare approach, attracting many new patients and an overwhelmingly positive response from our community. Thank you LocalsGuide for providing an intimate and effective way for me to engage our community.


Dr. Casey

The LocalsGuide published a story about my piano business two years ago, and I am still receiving clients as a result of that article! I received five phone calls the day after the article appeared, and the requests have been occasional but continuous ever since. The LocalsGuide not only generates business, but builds community. I love reading about my neighbors, and everyone I know read that article about me!

When Your Advertising Works Too Well...

PLEASE HELP ME: I cannot get my phone to stop ringing. I am a local dog walker… I can only walk 3 to 4 dogs at a time. I thought it would be a good idea to run an ad in the LocalsGuide to increase my business… I have had so many phone calls now I am afraid to answer my phone!!

Working with a reluctant mate or spouse can present challenges and one needs to proceed lightly to find a balance and solution that meets both individuals needs. Taking over and imposing your reality on another is not going to fullfill your vision and there fore it is important to establish the basis for creating your Love Nest space by asking important questions such as: Is this a Love Nest for myself or for us?

For the majority of people around the world this is a reality. In the Love Nest Blueprint we talk about how to work within your existing space. How to organize it, claim in and work within it to embody the Love Nest principles. 

The process of creating a Love Nest is as much a state of mind and way of being as it is matched and paired with physical items. Relax, do your best and work within the reality of your situation.

Fact: You CAN turn a local community magazine into a highly profitable business when priced and sold properly.

6) You Need to Be a Designer To Put Together a Magazine

Fact: You CAN design and publish your own local magazine without a graphic design background. You simply need to hire out the design work or find an easy-to-use online program to help you do the work.

7) Printing is Complicated and Not Affordable

Fact: You CAN print your magazine in a simple, affordable, and accessible way. It’s possible to remotely publish your magazine, and then have it drop-shipped to a final location for distribution.

8) Creating Content Takes A Lot of Time

Fact: You CAN create content for your local magazine both quickly and easily.

9) There Is No Space for Me - Another Magazine Already Exists

Fact: You CAN create your own local magazine and succeed even if there are other local magazines in your town.
