Connecting People With Local Places

Local Business Directory | Digital Magazine | Marketing Tools & Systems

Are you ready to grow your local service business?

We know that running your own business can be hard. You’re juggling so many different things at once, and it’s hard to keep up with all of the marketing jobs that need to be done.

That’s why we created the Whirlocal Marketing System, designed for small businesses who are ready to grow and scale.

As a local business ourselves, we are passionate about helping other local businesses succeed because we know that small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and neighborhoods.

Running a business can be hard.
Your marketing shouldn’t have to be.

At WhirLocal, we connect people with local places during the buyer’s journey using marketing tools, systems, and services. We can help you with all the marketing jobs that need to be done, such as building your online presence and traffic, build and promote your online reputation, generating and promoting content, having a social presence, and automating as much of your processes as possible so you can do more with fewer people. It’s like having a marketing manager without having to train them, pay their salary, or buy a desk.

This allows you to focus on what matters most – building relationships, closing business, and managing your team.

Marketing jobs and challenges we can help solve:

  • I need a new website
  • I need more traffic to grow my business
  • I need more positive online reviews
  • I need ways to promote my content
  • I need better ways to manage my social media
  • I need to automate my sales, marketing, and business processes
  • I need a CRM to manage my contacts
  • I need a way for customers to book online
  • I need a way to manage my sales pipeline
  • I need an email marketing tool
  • I need a better way to communicate with my leads
  • I need a marketing system
  • I need a way to send texts to my leads
  • and many more …

We Understand Local


WhirLocal was built by a local business for local businesses. We are not a “big-tech” company, a billion-dollar bully, or venture-funded unicorn that doesn’t live, work, and play in our neighborhood. We believe that consumers and businesses alike deserve better. 

With our growing network of local neighborhoods, places, and Neighborhood Guides, we like to say “We’re Local & Proud Of It”

Any reviews that you currently have generated and are being promoted on WhirLocal will remain. 

If you have PRO plan and above, you can:

  • Export contacts out of the CRM
  • Save your website pages as HTML so your new developer can make any necessary changes and load them on a new hosting account

You’re losing business to your competitors if you aren’t being proactive about leveraging testimonials and social proof in your marketing.

Positive testimonials and social proof help you stand out from your competition and grow your business. Period.

What is a Neighborhood Magazine Newsfeed?

Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, Nextdoor, and other sites all have newsfeeds. The problem is, these newsfeeds are not focused on your local neighborhood. We’ve built hyper-local neighborhood newsfeeds so you can see what is going on in your neighborhood without all the drama and content you don’t need. [See Example]

What is the affiliate referral program?

As a WhirLocal Affiliate, you earn recurring commissions in two ways;

1) Direct referral commissions of 20% (recurring) when someone signs up for a WhirLocal membership through your Unique Affiliate URL and buys or upgrades to a paid membership account.

2) Bonus referral commissions of 10% (recurring) when someone signs up for a WhirLocal membership through the Unique Affiliate URL of one of your direct referrals and buys or upgrades to a paid membership account.
