“Direct revenue from our own customers is a major growth strategy for our company. Launch by Local is the culmination of our recent acquisitions, and we believe it is a world-class product,” said Heath Clarke, Local Corporation, chief executive officer. “Because this is built into our own platform, we’re able to offer it at an incredibly low price as compared to our competitors, yet with very high gross margins. We plan to grow our direct sales force in order to sell Launch by Local at larger scale, and also intend to increase the number of sales channels using the product. We’re excited with the performance thus far and look forward to reporting growth in our direct Launch subscriber numbers in future periods.”
