Internet Marketing Consultant
"I’ve had complete satisfaction with my decision to join the ReachLocal team. Having come from a much larger company, I thoroughly enjoy the autonomy of growing my account base in a launch market. The daily routine can be difficult at times, but the thought of the end goal and being part of such an aggressively growing company making it all worth while. I have, and will continue to, refer friends to ReachLocal as I welcome them to come along for this tremendous ride."

"I have had many opportunities to speak with candidates who are considering employment at ReachLocal, and I am happy to share my thoughts. One of the things that I love about ReachLocal is that it is a dynamic, growing company. I love that we are able to make changes and add products based on the changes and evolution of the internet. I happily worked for AT&T Yellow Pages for 7 years, and I feel like I was on a luxury liner, sipping a cocktail, and jumped overboard landing on the ReachLocal speed boat, white knuckling it with the wind whipping through my hair. ReachLocal is positioned to quickly and nimbly navigate through the internet space – search, surf, social and who knows what next. It is a blast!
What is it like to work for ReachLocal? It is like running your own business. You need to have a strategy in place. You need to have a business plan and goals in mind. In the beginning, plan on working 24/7 if you want to reach the higher echelon of sales. Eat, breathe, sleep ReachLocal, constantly lead generating, driving all over to meet clients, analyzing results. And it is fun! It is amazing to see what an impact you can have on the livelihood of local businesses and their employees. When I left AT&T, I was thinking that I was selling advertising on Google & Yahoo. Working at RL is so much more. Your ability to impact a local business is huge. Since we record phone calls, I have worked with business on their intake protocol. Everything from training their personnel, to evaluating how their business operates, to discussing profit margins and angles to growing their businesses. It is extremely gratifying."

"I have been an Internet Marketing Consultant at ReachLocal for over two years now. I am so glad to be working for a company like ReachLocal. I love the corporate culture here. I find that everyone at ReachLocal actually wants to be here and it comes through on a daily basis whether you are talking to management or support. If you need help, someone is always willing to lend a hand.
I love that we do not have territories here and that we can hit most small- to medium-sized business in any vertical. At my previous employer, I had a territory and could only focus on one vertical. It was very limiting to accomplishing my sales goals.
I also love that ReachLocal is on the cutting edge with technology. There is never a dull moment here as we are constantly adding new products and services. I am excited to see what will happen in the next few years with my company. We have been growing so fast and it is very exciting.
My favorite thing about working at ReachLocal is that I have a lot of autonomy. If you are selling and working hard, no one really bothers you. I treat my job here as if I am running my own business. I want to continue to grow my book of business and build my own sales team. There is so much opportunity here because I get paid residual income on every sale that I make and retain.
A typical day at ReachLocal for me is hitting the streets cold calling. I cold call in person all day and leave materials behind if I can't get an appointment. I talk to everyone I meet about ReachLocal.
One thing I would tell new or potential hires is that it definitely takes hard work and dedication to be successful here. You must be willing, in the beginning, to put in a lot of hours. This will get you to where you need to be faster. After your book is at a healthy amount, you can slow down a bit if you want or you can hire an Account Manager to help you grow your book. I opted to hire two Account Managers and have not stopped growing my book of business. I can sell this product with integrity because I know it works.
I Love Reachlocal!"

"Working at ReachLocal is unlike any other company I have ever worked for. Don’t get me wrong, I have quite enjoyed previous employers but not to the extent I enjoy ReachLocal.
Why do I love ReachLocal? It is hands down the fairest company I have ever seen – hard work actually equates to higher income and more opportunities! I have seen the hardest working people in the company advance their careers while making handsome incomes and having fun in the process.
I was one of the first 50 employees at ReachLocal, I’ve seen them come and go but the people with real drive and desire to succeed who are also willing to put in the effort are all enjoying flourishing careers.
Compensation is designed for high achievers, the more revenue you bring to the company the more they give back to you. Performance is rewarded in an extremely equitable manner. I work with some of the most talented, intelligent and visionary people around… the 5 founders are unbelievably talented and so down to earth it is humbling to be around them.
I am a fan of any company that rewards employees for hard work, plays fair, has immense integrity and genuine concern for each other and always does what they say they are going to do. What more could you ask for?"

I have been working at ReachLocal full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
I always have conducted my business as a business development specialist and the tools that ReachLocal provides me with, are the cutting edge of digital marketing. If my clients would feel they don't get what they expected from my activities - they most likely would not retain my services year in and year out. I love the fact that I am the face of the company to them -- and it is only when they are satisfied - that I am as well. If someone looking for a "job" from 9-5 and don't really care what happens any other time -- then they should not join RL - they may be a better fit at the USPS or UPS.Cons
Certainly there is always room for improvement and my experience in the past 2 years especially, has shown that the company keeps striving for improvements. They admitted errors they made in restructuring and have always taken steps to make things better,..
In essence - if you want to blame Adobe for failing to be a graphic designer - then one should have been honest from the get-go and not pretend to be one. The same applies here -- if you failed at ReachLocal you most likely will fail in any entrepreneurial function at any other company as well. Look at the ones who are successful - and then you will see the difference. The "con" here is - that you are free to conduct your business as you feel fit -- and if that's M-F from 9-5 -- you will fail.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep doing what you are doing and continue to seek the input and advice from the core consultants - that have a proven track record - to ensure the company is heading in the right direction.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
