About Us

We’re all about the locals. 

Locally-owned and officially launched on April 15, 2011, ResortLocals.com is an online media company helping locals stay informed, connect with one another, learn about new events and become part of a local, positive community. 

We understand the issues locals face when trying to live and work in any resort town.  That’s why we created this easy to use and practical website as a means to help those locals promote their services, learn about local events, receive local deals and share their information with other locals in their resort town. 

We help them connect, share and learn so they no longer have to “just get by,” but instead, thrive!

We empower our website visitors by delivering fresh, quality content that includes, but is not limited to, our exclusive database of local profiles, unique news and information related to living in a resort town and exclusive ‘dealz’ that support local residents.

We promote the website throughout the valley in a multitude of ways: local print, radio and TV advertising; email marketing; social media exposure; sweepstakes and contests; flyers and banners; sponsorships and underwriting opportunities; and lots of grassroots, gorilla marketing efforts. 

Everywhere we go, we talk it up!

Our highly interactive and easy to use website attracts a wide audience both near and far.  We incorporate the latest tools and functionality to ensure that connections are made, needs are met and advertisers are satisfied.  Our audience continues to expand by leaps and bounds as word of the website spreads and the ResortLocals community grows.

In the short time since our launch, we have been growing at a rapid pace…and we have the locals to thank for that! 

 

Demographics 

Resort Locals enjoys hosting one of the most diverse communities of local residents in resort towns: locals ranging from hard working locals to successful 2nd and 3rd homeowners. As a result, subscribers of Resort Locals are some of the most dedicated and passionate people in the valley.  We cater to a unique audience made up of passionate sports enthusiasts to laid-back hippie-types to the short-term, after-college resident who’s ready for an exciting life experience.

Our site attracts a wide demographic: man/woman, young/old, rich/poor, hard-working laborers/laid-back creative types, PhDs/trade school, individual/team-player, corporate business executives/sole practitioners.  Whatever their niche, users fit in and get their needs met.  No matter whom you wish to target, Resort Locals helps you get exposed to the right audience.

Without a doubt, the one unifying characteristic which users and visitors alike possess is their undying passion and love for the resort town in which they live and their unwavering desire to live there.

Special Mentions

Participate in our “special mentions” program to generate additional exposure.  Do you need to target the locals in resort towns everywhere?  Or, are you only interested in reaching local workers in specific areas (i.e. targeting a specific subgroup)?  We offer a customized marketing solution comprised of special mentions in targeted emails and blog posts as well as social media exposure that will get you noticed.

Pricing for special mentions is customized for each advertiser, and it is based on the total number of mentions requested (limited opportunities), various placement options, desired timing, and overall “special mention” campaign objectives.  Please contact us for more details.
