Bite-Sized Tips, Tricks and Updates from our Team!
YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR MISSION
We began LOCALS ADVOCATE because we saw a support-need for family-owned businesses to succeed. We have worked within small business for virtually our entire careers. The unfortunate reality of these invaluable businesses is that the visionary/owner lacks the most important tool to continue growth - TIME.
Based in Walker County, Texas, LOCALS ADVOCATE was founded to be essentially the pit-crew for family-owned businesses here in Texas and abroad! We offer website/SEO and operations-efficiency solutions so that you can continue to run your day-to-day operations without being interrupted. We want to help you grow your business into what you know it can be, without the headache of bringing on additional staff (which costs way more than their wage). We do this by focusing on two major business dynamics: digital presence, and process-optimization.
In today's business landscape, digital presence determines success. If potential customers cannot find you in a matter of seconds online - they will go to your competition. Ranking in search results and on third-party apps like Maps, Waze, Google Maps, Yelp, etc. are the reputation-builders. Having an SEO-optimized website is the way that ‘word-of-mouth’, or organic marketing has evolved. People are as ready to talk online to thousands of strangers as they are among their close circle of friends and family. Think of the last service you searched for; Did you go past the first page of results? Did you click on the advertised vendors or did you scroll past that to the organic results? If you looked on an app like Google Maps or Yelp - did you call the folks with 100+ reviews of 4 stars or better, or the guy without a website and no reviews?
We all know that at the end of the day - cash flow is king. Sales are the lifeblood of your business and without a steady influx of new customers or services, you are maybe a couple months away from closing up shop. We are here to help you secure a huge opportunity for your business in drawing the attention of dozens, even thousands, of customers EVERY DAY. Then, after you've completed your service, getting customers to leave a review on these platforms and maintaining a consistent brand image on social media channels will keep prospective customers engaged. These are worth their weight in gold. But again - these all take time in getting setup and managing, and that’s what we are here for.
Now, say you make some of these changes, and you’re getting hundreds of leads per month from people who want your services- Do you have a way to scale your operations for the increased demand? Is your team trained and empowered to meet the increased supply of customers and schedule implications? Does your office staff have a streamlined customer-management system to keep all the information pertinent to them readily-available? If people leave or retire, is there a procedures and protocol handbook to train the next person, or is the knowledge and experience walking out the door with that person? These are all issues that we have dealt with and that’s why operations optimization is the second leg of our support to you.
Even without the digital world of business, inefficiencies of business operations can torpedo you from within as fast as anything else. Is there a system of checks and balances for your weekly payroll and banking? Is there a going log for keys, passwords and other security measures? Who has access to the shop and storage facilities? As employees we saw a business implode and eventually fail because of seemingly small details like these.
There is a lot out there that can suck you into a black hole of indecision when it comes to developing a strategy for your business. That’s why in our first meetings with customers, we don’t pitch any products or solutions. We want to know you, your goals, and know them intimately so we can come back to you with a tailored-solution. We’ve seen the inner-workings of everything from contractors and tradesmen to law firms and dentists, and we identified that what separates the lifestyles (and peace) of the owners was NOT the industry they were in - it was the balance of these two daily dynamics of their business.
Let us be your advocate! We look forward to working with you!
Based between Dallas and Houston, LOCALS ADVOCATE is proud to serve our home state of Texas here in Walker and Montgomery County. We split our time between Huntsville and Spring, and have come to love the families and commerce circles. We are proudly serving Conroe, Willis, Montgomery, Leona, Madisonville, Centerville, Fairfield, The Woodlands and virtually anywhere in Texas. We love the lake-country and rolling hills of the back-country. Sam Houston National park is a treasure, and we’re so glad to see all the bustling businesses up and down I45.
Texas has a rich history of entrepreneurship and industry. The Lone-Star-heart truly shows in every aspect of this area and the family-owned businesses that comprise the backbone of Texas. Sure, there is big industry as well - trade, transportation and the utility sector employs over 2 million people - but the backbone of each and every Texas town is you- the mom-n-pop, family-owned, shops and services.
LOCALS ADVOCATE’s mission is to bring you tools, services and results through honest hard work. We know that you, as the business owner, are tired of long hours to just make it by. We have resources and experience to bring you to a better work-life balance, where you can spend more time with family or on passion projects, and not your day-to-day operations.
We are proud to be a part of this community and are excited to begin this journey with you.
