Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities

Whether you are looking for a partner to help you create curated sponsored content pieces about your product or service or looking for an opportunity to put your own marketing message in front of a pre-qualified group of potential customers, we’d love to talk to you.

About Local Marketing Institute

At Local Marketing Institute, we have one goal … to help marketers effectively promote local businesses online.

The challenges local marketers face with local search, email, social media, online advertising and other digital marketing strategies can be overwhelming!

Local marketing is very different from “traditional” digital marketing used by large brands or e-commerce sites and marketers need to know what really works for a local business.

We provide local marketing tips and training with the most respected marketing experts in the world. We also highlight effective and reputable local marketing products and services.

I want to thank all of you at LMI. What you and your team have already taught me has had a powerful impact on my clients' success. They have noticed the improvements! What a great relief it is to have somewhere where I can ask the questions that sometimes stump me. I am planning on joining the VIP program and, honestly, I can’t wait.
