“Both RTOWN and LocalSphere share a strong strategic focus on the local world and strive to bring technologies and services that allow local merchants to have the powerful digital presence they deserve and that their customers now expect from them,” Vincent said.

Their partnership will provide businesses with a leading range of digital marketing services sold on a “priced for local” monthly subscription.

“The new RTOWN now has the largest customer base in its markets, the capital to expand its mandate to make every town RTOWN, and the leadership strength to execute its vision,” said Aulin.
