What Makes a Great City Manager?

Our best City Managers are outgoing, energetic, and genuinely helpful people. They look forward to visiting old, new, and potential customers and truly want to see them succeed.

Some of our most successful city managers have backgrounds in real estate, advertising, sales, local government, entrepreneurship, and local chambers of commerce. They’re willing to invest a little bit of capital and treat their opportunity as a full time job, and that’s why they thrive.

A few things you don't need to be a successful City Manager:

  • You don’t need any higher education or a special degree
  • You don’t need any intense training
  • You don’t need a special license or permit
  • You don’t need to be away from home for extended periods
  • You don’t have to pay professional fees or dues
  • You don’t have any excessive expenses
  • You don’t have any heavy lifting
  • You don’t work with noxious fumes or hazardous materials
  • You don’t even need to get your hands dirty

Yet you can earn over $100,000 per year! No wonder those who are successful in sales think they have the best jobs on the planet.

During your training session, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about online marketing, the shop local movement, and how to communicate your value to businesses. You just need to bring your drive, ambition, and willingness to learn.

The Business Model

The model lets City Managers grow their recurring revenue while helping local businesses.

There are three main ways businesses participate:

Free Profiles

Any and every business in your city can set up a free profile page and post to the news feed.

These profiles let businesses try out the platform and get a feel for the community before making any commitments. Even if a business doesn’t upgrade to a paid package, they will still get to keep their limited profile listing forever. Free profiles allow businesses to upload their logo, hours, business description, contact information, methods of payment, contact form, and more.

Self-Serve Packages

For $50-$200 per month, businesses get access to our full suite of online marketing tools.

They also receive featured listings that appear throughout the site, enhanced exposure to new customers, and other advanced features to help them grow their business. They can also upload much more content than a free profile.

Managed Packages

For $300-$500 per month, businesses receive everything in the self-serve package, plus a dedicated account manager.

Their account manager can help them use the tools in their online marketing suite, upload inventory to their online marketplace, craft newsletters, schedule social media updates, and so much more. Managed packages will also receive higher priority category ranking and can upload even more content. is Great for Teams, Too

The platform isn’t just for individuals. Using your established team to sell our platform can give you a new recurring revenue stream, help you reach a wider variety of clients, offer more value to current clients, and play an active role in shaping your community. The model works great with:

  • Insurance agencies
  • Real estate agencies
  • Chambers of commerce
  • Financial service agencies
  • Media companies & advertising firms
  • And other small businesses with existing sales teams
