About the Company:

In 2011, Local Yokel Media (LYM) officially launched its first-of-a-kind digital advertising platform. LYM aggregates and organizes hyperlocal blogs and websites by geography to empower local, regional and national marketers to authentically reach deep into granular, local geographies within defined service areas to execute efficient, geo-contextually relevant ad campaigns that get results.

We believe in the value that local publisher content delivers, both to the communities these websites cover as well as to advertisers wishing to reach local audiences. Using community-level content as a proxy for local ad targeting, Local Yokel Media can offer both efficiency and contextual relevance that is independent of cookie-blocking or other data targeting obstacles.
We have made authentic, relevant local advertising accessible to businesses of all sizes, at scale, and drive premium revenue for local publishers.
