TheLocalProject Delivers New Options for Promoting Your Business Locally!


TheLocalProject is actively engaged in establishing “Local Area Networks” (LANs) in communities across America. The fact that you have heard of TheLocalProject suggests the process has likely begun in your area. Each new LAN goes through a pre-launch process to pre-register businesses prior to launch. The earlier your business enrolls, the better positioning you will secure. Unlike the search engines, all business placements are permanently locked making early registration a significant long-term advantage. The larger your town’s CONNECTLocal network grows, the more visibility and traffic your business will receive.
