Localloop Mission

"Consumers are no longer leads to generate; they are opportunities to cultivate."

Our mission is to provide consumers with the Internet experience they want, instead of the Internet experience they have. We believe that Consumer Trafficking and Internet advertising in its current form is creating great distrust in the marketplace and is unnecessarily invading the privacy of consumers.

In order to create a better and safer Internet experience, we took the time to listen to what over 10,000 people really needed and wanted on the Internet. We discovered that people simply want a respectful and honest communication platform that honors individual personalities and social boundaries, educates versus sells, is easily accessible and always secure.

In response to these desires, we created Localloop.

Sincerely,

Jason Gaylord
Localloop Founder

Localloop's Band of Mothers is a community movement powered by women for positive change.

The Four Pillars of Localloop

Respecting People and Supporting Communities
ONE
GUARANTEED PRIVACY – RESPECT PERSONAL IDENTITIES AND SOCIAL BOUNDARIES

Our #1 priority is respecting personal information and social boundaries. The Internet is becoming a very scary place. Large Internet giants and now most upstart websites have chosen to commoditize our identities and turn personal privacy into a product that can be packaged and sold. They offer “free” services to entice users, then gather our personal information and sell it behind our backs to the highest bidder.

  • This is how these companies monetize their platforms. We call this practice Consumer Trafficking. We believe this is an unethical form of commerce and a dangerous invasion of personal privacy that needs to stop.

    We will protect, respect and guarantee privacy. We do not gather your personal information. We will never sell your personal information, and we will never track your activity on our site.

TWO
VERIFIED PERFORMANCE – ESTABLISHING A NEW STANDARD OF TRUST

Localloop establishes a new standard of trust. There are many other websites that claim to help people separate good companies from the bad in the marketplace. But look closely and you will find that they are simply “pay-to-play.” That is, companies that charge customers money to use their website and provide rankings based on which business pays the most to advertise on the platform.

  • Consumers have figured this out and no longer trust these sites. They want true metrics and analytics they can trust. Localloop delivers these metrics by requiring every Localloop Certified Business on our website to have and maintain between a 4 and 5 STAR Customer Satisfaction Rating based on a minimum of 20 independent 3rd party verified reviews. These reviews provide consumers with the trusted information they seek, and gives companies unfiltered and unbiased information about their performance.

THREE
ADVERTISING FREE – CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT FREE OF PROMOTION

Localloop is advertising free. Consumers are tired of being bombarded by endless self-promotion and they hate being treated as leads instead of opportunities. Internet advertising has become so pervasive that most consumers view it as nothing more than noise, clutter and an annoying distraction. We believe these ads distract and detract from the spirit of mutually beneficial commerce, so we’ve banned it from the Localloop websites.

  • The Localloop business model IS NOT driven by selling annoying online ads and as a result, consumers who choose to use the Localloop platform never again have to look at another online advertisement. The Localloop business model IS driven by helping small business owners become better at running their companies. In other words, Localloop gets paid to help business owners succeed instead of getting paid to annoy consumers by providing them what they do not want.

FOUR
COMMUNITY INVESTMENT – PAYING THE PRIVILEGE OF SERVICE FORWARD

Local sponsorship and community support should be more than just slapping your logo on a brochure, banner or sign and “calling it good.” In a world where economic differences are widening at an alarming rate, it's in the best interest of everybody to pitch in and find a better way to support local communities. At Localloop, we believe local businesses should help strengthen and support their local communities and we've built the tools to help them do it.

  • There is a trend in America, driven by big business interests, to commoditize products and services. This race to the pricing bottom is shifting consumer focus from “value received” to “price paid.” Left unchecked, this trend will result in the small business owner’s demise and loss of millions of jobs in our country. Small business owners are uniquely positioned to invest in their local community in a way that large companies simply do not. Many local communities are in need of being revitalized. Localloop will teach small business owners how to deliver great value to customers and also become pillars in their local community.

Our Story

Pursuing a better Internet

Jason Gaylord, the founder of Localloop, recognized huge problems being created by the Internet: people were no longer doing business with people, our privacy was being invaded and monetized, and trust in the marketplace was rapidly eroding. Jason believed people deserved a more fulfilling experience, and he set about trying to figure out how to create it for them.

To get the ball rolling, he conducted over 4,000 telephone interviews in an effort to find out what people really wanted from their Internet experience and, just as important, what they didn’t want. The responses he received were consistent and clear. People simply wanted to be honored, respected and always told the truth. Jason used these responses to create the 4 pillars outlined above – Guaranteed Privacy, Verified Performance, Advertising Free and Community Investment. Having built the foundation, Jason then formed a team of like-minded people to help build a communication platform that met the needs of consumers and helped support local communities. The result is Localloop, a better Internet experience that respects people, protects privacy, restores trusted commerce and supports communities.
