Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a custom website?

We provide a turnkey yet highly configurable local media website that incorporates modern best-practices out of the box as well as the ability to brand the site. Various layout options as well as customizable colors, fonts, font sizes, background images, and a few other things to give you a unique look. If there is something specific you're looking for, we'd love to hear from you to show you what we can do and better support your needs.
Who actually manages the website?

That depends! Everything is designed to be super easy to use and do yourself but we do offer a range of services for those that simply don't want to deal with it on their own. Either way, we handle all the technical stuff like updates, maintenance and security.
Why a network?

Being part of a network means that we can all continually learn from each other and can build better tools and solutions by pooling our resources together much like how a television network, such as CBS, works with locally owned affiliates.

We hold regular office hours, host a private Facebook group and are continually developing new technology and resources for members. As such, you are never alone when it comes to building a successful online community!

How do feature requests work?

We're always on the lookout for new ideas and maintain a backlog of features to add to the platform.

Each feature is prioritized based on a variety of factors including but not limited to best practices within the industry, the size of the project, and maintenance needs within the network. Should you have a feature that you'd like to see added to the platform, we want to hear from you.

All presented ideas are reviewed and added to our development roadmap if it's determined to be a good fit for the network as a whole. A portion of all membership fees goes into maintenance and new features for the Community Content Engine so we're always getting better as the network grows but if you have a pet feature that isn't at the top of our road map you can have it prioritized for a fraction of the cost of building it yourself.

Do I still need website hosting?

Nope! We handle website hosting, maintenance, security and more so you can focus on growing your business.

That said, you will still need to register and maintain your domain and email hosting is technically separate from website hosting so you'll need to keep using an email service from a company like Godaddy or Google.

Are there any limits for the Community Content Engine?

There is a soft cap of 100k pageviews and 1,000,000 ad impressions per month in our base package. If you go over that, there may be additional costs for maintaining your website. There are no user or storage limits. You also get all updates automatically as soon as they are available at no additional cost.
What if I'm not ready for the full membership?

We offer three options for those publishers not ready for full membership:

1) We offer 3 consulting packages to help you identify a strategic plan for your businesses. You can learn more about those here. These 3 options are designed to help you asses the feasibility of digital for your publication and provide more in-depth strategic planning and training before making your decision.

2) Our partner program is great for publishers that want to leverage their own technology & resources but still want to be able to offer the Locable Marketing Platform to their advertisers as a value add service. Contact us here for more information on how to become a partner.

3) If you're just looking for a new mobile-optimized corporate website AND don't plan on producing regular content for your website, then Locable's Marketing Platform may be a good option for you.
