» About & F.A.Q

1. What is Local Success Directory ?

Local Success.org is an open listing directory that serves entrepreneurs an opportunity and freedom to share or promote their works, website or company.

2. What is the purpose of Local Success.org ?

There is Facebook and there is Linkedin. There is Craigslist and there is YellowPages.

Local Success Directory happens to be a fine mix of them all. It’s a place where you can shout out to the world about your business, your product or your innovative idea, efficiently and professionally just like YellowPages, yet at a more personal level like Craig-list while turning customers into royal friends and growing your social network (Facebook) in a way any entrepreneur would pledge for — both local and online. We hand you the tool that does not cost you hundreds of dollars for marketing or pr, neither it looks too cheap like a low-budget ad. Ever heard of SharkTank? Pitch your product AND your company here!

That aside, this is also a place where you can share your venture and business experience — to motivate, to inspire, to encourage others taking the road less traveled and challenging themselves out of their comfort zone. Just like you once did.

Everyone loves to read success/break-through or inspirational story, or just story in general. Any of us could easily relate if you have seen couple series of Undercover boss such as 7-Eleven, Frontier-Airline and White Castle. After the episode aired, most companies’ stock went up. Audience start to remember the brand by the image of the CEO or the person behind who runs the company. Because they now have a stronger bond, a new insight, a closer look of what the business’s mission is and its purpose — they become more connected with the company. That in reality is better than any noisy advertising billboard and tv commercials.

3. Why submit your profile listing here ?

We apply very strict validation to ensure high-quality, good ethics and great business profile from every of our listings. Each submission is an influential life venture of its own.

4. Which submissions ARE and ARE NOT allowed ?

We accept most submission. The listing must feature the person’s own profile, biography and portrait.

The profile then can have details description of their business, offers and/or products. We do not accept listing of chain stores, corporate or franchises (eg. McDonald locations, Radioshack, Apple stores, you get the idea…). However, we do accept the profile of the founder of these companies.

We do not accept Drug, Political content and other inappropriate topics. Use common sense. We have entrusted this in our talented entrepreneurs — when it comes to your turn, we have faith that you know exactly what is best to portrait your image here — in a well mannered and professional presentation.

We do not accept vague information, low-rating, bad submission. We often perform due diligence on our listings from time to time.
