Localsearch marks 30 years with $30,000 grants for SMBs

Localsearch, the digital marketing presence provider, is celebrating its 30th year of collaboration with Australian small businesses by offering a digital presence package, worth $30,000, to local businesses in need.

Localsearch has 28,000 Australian small business partners and it provides support to an additional 300,000. The company states that, “As part of its ongoing commitment to champion local businesses, Localsearch is keen to identify and collaborate with emerging SMBs across various sectors. Whether it’s a hairdresser in Melbourne, a mechanic in Sydney, or an artisan in Perth, Localsearch is eager to amplify their digital presence.”

Speaking at Localsearch’s 30th Anniversary event, Daniel Stoten, Executive Chairman, said, “Three decades represents both a landmark and a point for contemplation. We’ve witnessed significant change in the industry landscape. From starting in a domain that’s now defunct to navigating a sector that didn’t exist when we began – our commitment has always been to simplify digital marketing for countless small businesses.”

In recognition of this milestone, Localsearch will select 10 Localsearch partners, from across Australia, and award them a promotional package worth $3,000. This package can be used for various digital products, including Google Ads and Meta Advertising. The goal is to enhance their digital footprint and highlight their services to a wider Australian audience.

Stoten added, “The Australian economy is greatly fortified by its small businesses. They generate employment opportunities, stimulate economic activity, and offer specialized services often distinct from what larger entities provide. We’re thrilled to shine a light on some of the country’s most promising SMBs and celebrate this 30-year journey.”

Interested parties can submit their applications, which will remain open until the 13th of September.
