Share Article

FS Local is on a mission to gather Canada’s largest community of small business experts through the launch of the new Experts Program.

Only 41% of Canadian small businesses have a Web presence. That is a statistic that online directory FS Local is on a mission to change. On May 26, 2014 FS Local officially launched the new Experts Program. The program is a full-service online marketing solution for local small businesses in Canada.

Founded in May of 2012, FS Local began as a Toronto-based boutique marketing agency. Shortly following its launch, FS Local expanded its services to offer members of their various partners low-cost membership options.

The Experts Program is an enhanced membership option that provides exclusive 1st place positioning, video creation and marketing, social promotion, blogging, one-one-one concierge service, SEO research and reports, stats and more. The program is designed to help businesses build trust and authority by giving them a platform to share their expertise online.

“We give our Experts everything they need to be successful for less than six dollars a day. Through our partnerships, we learn that businesses don’t have the time and resources to stay ahead of the competition. As we bring people in, we see the issues local businesses are facing. We’re using our own expertise to build a better group of businesses both online and offline,” said Michael Yack, President and Founder of FS Local.

The Experts Program works to elevate local businesses. As an Expert joins the program, they are audited for SEO penalties to ensure their Web presence has not been built on uneven ground. FS Local sets each Expert member up for success so they can focus on being better business people.

Stu Atkinson, current FS Local Expert and Owner of IT Pilots said: “I am so impressed with FS Local and the many levels that FS Local brings attention to my company. Very recently a promotional video was created by the FS Local team. The reaction from my existing customers and new customers contacting me has been clear. Impressive. Today's business is seeking us out through social media such as, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, websites and blogs. I feel comfort in knowing that FS Local covers these diverse media streams to bring customers to us.”

Exclusivity is the key to the success of the Experts program. FS Local only accepts one business per industry and region onto the program. Businesses who are interested in becoming an Expert can apply at http://www.fslocal.com/experts. Limited spaces are available.
