Better late than never. Yellowbook was first with click forward, then Superpages with Inceptor. Now only SBC/bellsouth is left with no apparent partner- yet. I bet pretty soon, newspapers will be doing this as well.

I've read their site twice now, and still have no clue as to what they do. It might be the most poorly written description of what they offer, I've ever read.

Can some one break it down for me? It sounds like they take offline advertising agencies and provide them with tools to cross sell web space to their clients. Which if that's the case, then by all means, copy-paste-save right over the existing About Us section ;)

Thanks,

Thanks guys. We appreciate it.

We aren't going anywhere. This is our space. LocalLaunch is our company. And this is our community.

We'll see you in Vegas if not sooner.
