SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A local mobile guide company "TownWizard" (www.TownWizard.com) added its 150th global partner this week. Over 100 of those partners signed up in just the past year, making TownWizard one of the largest local mobile content networks in the world.
"We believe that no one knows 'local' better than locals," said TownWizard's President, Jeff Armstrong. "One of our TownWizard partners is generating over $17,000 per month in local ad revenue, so small towns are big business."
TownWizard provides local entrepreneurs and businesses with the software, business tools and support that they need to successfully capitalize on the huge and growing local mobile opportunity. Borrell Associates estimates that the local mobile advertising opportunity will grow 103 percent in 2012 to $1.6 Billion. With custom mobile app development costing tens of thousands of dollars or more, TownWizard can help entrepreneurs launch a new business for a fraction of that.
"My husband has a full-time job and I'm a stay-at-home mom," said Nichole Earle of GRapCity.com, the first mobile guide for Grand Rapids, Michigan. "TownWizard only requires a small investment and it allows us to keep our current lifestyle."
For a one-time startup fee of $795 and a monthly fee of $249, TownWizard partners are provided with a custom local website, an iPhone app, Android app, Content Management System, online video tutorials and marketing support. "It's everything you need to get a new local guide business up and running fast," said Armstrong.
This week, TownWizard passed 150 partners, including new partners in Taiwan and Nigeria. With partners now in six countries around the world, the TownWizard platform is expanding its global footprint.
"TownWizard is a mobile guide for every small town, resort and neighborhood in the world," said Armstrong. "The beauty of our model is that anyone who knows the ins and outs of their community can use our proven platform to provide their own authentic content and generate significant revenue."
