Local Search Group Digital Marketing Turns Nine

There are thousands of you reading our blogs, watching our videos, and keeping up with our activities on various platforms where we publish.  

I believe we all have something in common: We enjoy learning, understanding and developing a competitive edge in the hyper-competitive automotive digital marketing space.

Nine years ago, Local Search Group was formed thanks in large part to a vendor in the space that couldn’t help our dealership go to market in a timely fashion.


Now we are  “A Now part of a Now business.” 

And the pace of change and the speed at which change continues not only excites, it exhilarates. 

Digital Change

Our company was founded in 2010. We worked on and with Google before Google was cool. We worked on and with Facebook before Facebook was popular. Now, they are ways of life.

Automotive Change

In 2011 there were only three cars that went from 0-60 in less than 3 seconds. The Nissan GT-R, the Porsche 911 Turbo S, and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. 

Now there are 11 such cars. And the speed and pace of change continues.

Today our company still maintains our status as a top flight automotive performer thanks to our amazing employees, our outstanding platform partners, and a dealer network that --like us—just won’t quit until the job is done and the game is won!

So, thank you for tuning in and being a part of our 9th anniversary. We can’t wait to see what the 10th looks like. Like the speed demons we are, we think it’s going to be better—and get here even faster—than you could ever imagine!
