Building Stronger, More Authentic Local Communities
Local businesses are the backbone of every great community -- so MyArea Network has made it our business to give regional and small businesses the tools they need to launch and grow successful, recognizable local brands.
Local businesses give a city a unique culture, support economic growth, and create a bond between residents and their community. Our mission is to support local businesses so they can bring these benefits to local communities. We do that by helping brands:
Use data to understand their local community and make sense of a fragmented digital world.
Leverage local media and location-based marketing to reach more nearby customers.
Access scalable digital solutions that grow alongside their business.
We love local. We understand local. We are local.
Our story starts with a crab cake. Our founder Scott Conlon was in Maryland trying to find the best place to enjoy the city's most iconic food. But, he struggled to find a resource to tell him where to go.
Since a platform of stories about local businesses written by local residents didn't exist -- Scott built his own.
He created the first Local Area Site, 813area.com, which evolved into more than 75 other sites and now, a platform of resources and solutions for helping local businesses reach more residents and visitors.
