BubbleLife.com was launched with realization that neighborhood news wasn’t declining, it was just being broken up or “siloed” among various websites, blogs, Facebook pages and emails. It wasn’t that there was no neighborhood news, there just wasn’t a central collection point for all the news that was being generated. BubbleLife.com’s use of aggregation combined with its own editorial and community contributions has made BubbleLife.com the leading innovator in neighborhood news.
BubbleLife.com has been on the forefront of bringing local communities online since 2001. Starting in the Park Cities area of Dallas, TX, BubbleLife.com has grown to over 250 local communities across the United States.
For local merchants, BubbleLife Media realized that their problems with local online advertising weren’t from the lack of audience, but rather the poor approach they used to advertise. The core problem was the perception that online advertising was just like yellow page advertising – run the ad and wait for the phone to ring. But online marketing is fundamentally very different than the yellow pages because it represents a multi-step process that is unfamiliar to most local businesses. In order to address this problem, businesses needed a set of tools that let them manage their own process with tools, in addition to education on how to use those tools. Thus BubbleLife Connect, BubbleLife Media’s all-in-one solution, was created to make local businesses competitive in the local online marketplace.
