As your business grows, SwitchLocal.com will also grow with your business. If your branches or stores have the same common ads, you only need to set-up your ads once. You just have to link each store to each ad and the web users will find your products within the specified zipcode or locality. To get a clearer view of this, let's say a restaurant business has 100 restaurants across America and the business has one common menu for all the restaurants. Do you need to repeat entering 100 menus? No, not in SwitchLocal.com In SwitchLocal.com, you will save a lot of time by setting-up only one common menu and link each restaurant to the same menu . You may ask ... how about If the restaurant business has 3 different menu in different regions?. In this case , only 3 menus need to be set-up and you just need to link each restaurant to its corresponding menu.
You can create your ads ahead of time and only make them active as you are ready. Let's say you are working on your new future weekly ad to be impleremented next month. In SwitchLocal, you can create this new weekly ad while your current ad is active and your new work-in-progress weekly ad is still hidden. Actually. SwitchLocal allows you to create multiple work-in-progress ads... that means you may work on many work-in-progress ads simultaneously. When you are ready to make an ad active, you just link the store or branch to the ad that needs to be active.
