Since its launch, LocalBlox has expanded in 60,000 neighborhood communities throughout the U.S., with thousands of ambassadors working quietly to promote business, connect neighbors with one another, and create safe and financially stable communities.
“We have the assistance of thousands of ambassadors, from moms and retired baby boomers to college students, who like social media and building their communities,” said Sabira Arefin, founder and CEO of LocalBlox. “Building hyper-local communities in that many neighborhoods with limited funding is challenging, but our ambassadors work tirelessly in their communities with a single goal, to make their neighborhoods a better places to live.”
The startup was launched with the goal of creating and promoting stable communities that were desirable places to live work and play. LocalBlox ambassadors are powerhouses of goodwill, promoting businesses, establishing connections with community members, and arranging a myriad of special events within their neighborhoods. At first glance, it may appear to visitors that there’s no new activity in a given location, but Arefin noted that ambassadors are constantly working to better their locales.
There are two distinct aspects of LocalBlox. One is a neighborhood platform where members can meet to share information and concerns, act as an early warning system for dangerous or suspicious activity, and assist others in the community. The second side of LocalBlox is geared toward businesses and is a core part of each neighborhood. The two parts of LocalBlox are integrated and woven into a whole for the betterment of all.
The firm’s web and mobile platform create a hyper-local community experience that encompasses profiles, service directories with aggregated resources, and local reviews, along with local jobs and services, events and community connections. Businesses have access to a variety of high-tech business tools, hyper-local directory listings, social bookmarking and SEO services. Company owners can avail themselves of mobile ads, geo-targeted voice mail, local B2B networking and marketing services.
“We have recently moved up our business directory for some strategic reasons, but there has been no change in our core mission” said Arefin. “We’re dedicated to helping our neighborhood ambassadors and businesses, providing them with the tools they need to promote their communities in a variety of ways. “
LocalBlox was the first firm of its kind to take community building from loosely associated individuals and bring them together in a focused group dedicated to working for the common good in their own neighborhoods in real time. The ambassadors at LocalBlox don’t always have time to post updates on their activities, but they’re always there, quietly working behind the scenes to create safe, thriving and financially stable neighborhoods.
