About the company:
Advertising has been through enormous change in the last 10 years when the likes of directory, local radio and papers were the only choices for small and medium enterprises in the UK. Search4Local was founded as these advertising mediums didn't seem to transition to digital advertising in the way that the SME seemed to be asking for. Businesses were bamboozled with jargon and attention-getting product names that failed to deliver. Search4Local saw the gap in the market and began to build infrastructure, process and skills that enabled them to create products that businesses were calling out for at a price point few could match.
