In 2011, LocBox (Locbox Labs) was originally founded by Saumil Mehta and Sailesh Ramakrishnan with one goal: To help local businesses grow. And we have enjoyed a lot of success doing it.
After 5 years of learning from what we did right—and what we did wrong—we decided it was time for a bit of a facelift (and a name that didn’t make people think we were in the home security business). So we loaded up the moving trucks, traded the San Francisco fog for the desert air, and called ourselves FetchRev, which may or may not have been inspired by our resident toy poodle, Kiwi.
Why? You see, local businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, and local business owners are the entrepreneurial minds that inspire us. But despite their fearless efforts, 50% of these companies fail within their first five years of life.
We’re here to change that statistic. Marketing is hard, and it’s only getting more complex. To be effective, competitive, and to keep up with consumer trends, local businesses must leverage email, Facebook, Google, mobile, Yelp, and more.
We are not just a software platform that sends emails or posts to social media. We’re your business partners that help you turn that hard-won new customer into a regular visitor. Because we believe you should have all the help you can get.
