One year ago, we launched LOCALiQ, the marketing solution from the USA TODAY NETWORK, to simplify local marketing for businesses. It’s been a great year, and we’ve been excited to partner with our clients to provide best-in-class solutions coupled with our data and insights plus expert service.

In the last year, we’ve accomplished a lot (if we do say so ourselves!). We’ve worked with thousands of clients across the country to help them grow their businesses. Plus, we’ve won 15 awards for our solutions, service, and technology.

We’ve also run more than 124,000 reports through the LOCALiQ Grader ““ our proprietary system that allows us to analyze a local business’s existing online presence and marketing and use these unique insights to advise them on the best marketing strategy to help them reach their unique goals. Again, our goal is to simplify local marketing, and that includes helping make it easier to pick from the huge variety of choices available when it comes to marketing your business today.

In addition, we launched The Growth Lab, which included both a series of live events in our local markets, as well as The Growth Lab Show podcast ““ all to help local business owners learn the latest and greatest when it comes to marketing, leadership, and reaching the modern consumer. We’ve hosted events in over 15 different markets and talked to over 40 business owners and leaders for our podcast. It’s been amazing connecting with local business owners across the country to hear about their unique challenges and support them through information, resources, and education.

As we move into the second year of LOCALiQ, we’re looking forward to working with even more local businesses to help them grow and succeed.
