Local Hero

Own your marketplace with the best directory software in the world. So smart, simple, and technologically advanced, small businesses will wonder how they got along without it.

Be a hero.

Meet the world’s best online directory for local brands. Local Hero was built with cutting-edge technology to give local brands and small businesses the tools they need to be successful online. It has never been easier to help your local business clients find new customers online. And it has never been easier for you to earn up to $1,000,000 in new revenue.

Your brand. Not ours. Most online directories emphasize their brand over yours. With us, you’re in control. Our software is designed to give you the flexibility to choose colors, logos, images, categories and more. You’re trying to help small businesses stand out. Why blend in?


We’ve built more functionality into a better product in ten months than our competitors have built in ten years. It’s time to stop playing catch up. Take a look.


Finally, a technology company that believes in the power of local news media! What surprises me the most about working with OwnLocal is not the fact that we doubled revenue from our prior directory vendor in less than 2 months; it is that their team frequently brings a level of insight to the table that makes us a better company.“- Andrew McFadden, The Press-Enterprise


Local Hero is just as beautiful and useful on mobile browsers and tablets as it is on your computer.

We built Local Hero to take advantage of Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and other social media. Unlike other products, social media isn’t an afterthought. It’s baked in.

Our SEO strategy for small businesses has been designed to be 100% white hat. That means that we’d never risk your reputation or your client’s for a temporary bump in Google ranking.
