Join The Local Best street team!
The Local Best is looking for some outgoing, energetic people to be a part of their campaign street team. May 1 to June 3 is campaign month in Sioux Falls for The Local Best. Although voting is open year-round, campaign is the last month before the annual contest closes and we make a special effort to encourage last minute votes.
The Street Team will generate votes by attending local events and setting up at other high-traffic areas. They will be outfitted in The Local Best t-shirts and carrying iPads for people to vote on the spot. In return for voting, we will usually have some kind of giveaway, like a discounted event ticket or service. For those who don’t want to take the time, we will hand out cards to encourage them to vote later.
The ideal person for the street team will be someone who is not afraid to approach strangers in a public setting. Some background in marketing or communications is helpful, but not necessary. We anticipate having 10-20 street team events over the month each lasting a couple of hours. Ideally, a member of the street team will commit to at least five events. The Local Best will hold a brief training session for the street team. Members of the street team will earn $10 per hour.
If interested, please contact Chief Marketing Officer Nathan Schock at

Our solutions are unique in that they are built around the most effective marketing tool of all time - trusted customer recommendations. And although we have a recipe book, we're always looking to toss fresh new ideas into the pot to see what else we can cook up! Bottom line, your input is valued.
One of the greatest blessings we've discovered in our business model is the freedom that it creates for our sales professionals 6 months every year. We call this our "B-season". It is during this B-season that our agents have opportunities to serve their clients and community, develop new markets, mentor new hires, spend more time with their family and friends and enjoy some downtime.
Our "A-season" is the 6 months where most of the sales in your home market are made. If you're familiar with the farming industry, this is our harvest. We work long days, calling and meeting with clients and prospects 50+ hours a week, regularly meet as a team, update and track activity in company systems, attend local networking events and spend time on various training and other personal development activities. Your first A-season will be your most intense 6-months, as you acquire new knowledge, skills and build relationships in your community.
Like any business venture, your market will be built on hard work and sacrifice. However, with Locals Love Us your rewards are not years away. Within 6 months, your market will be established. We carry you on a draw of $2500/mo as you build your market. A successful agent will see their income increase annually, earning a six-figure income by their third or fourth year, and will be blessed by all of the great relationships they will have developed in the local business community.
Successful agents will be awarded the opportunity to develop new markets, helping other agents build their markets. This provides a residual source of income that you'll be qualified to receive annually. Our model allows us the ability to offer an amazing future for those willing to put in the required effort on the front end. And just to put your mind at ease, this is not "network marketing".

It's September 1620, Plymouth England. The town is all abuzz about this ship, the Mayflower, that's set to depart to some "New World", a land of apparent freedom and opportunity. Most folks, afraid to step out into the unknown, pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity. We however, are the first ones onboard, ready for the challenge, fired up about the journey, and confident that we're being called to something greater than we currently understand.
Locals Love Us is a young company (2004), just recently funded for national expansion (2011). Over the past year we've opened our first handful of expansion cities, and are itching to get into the next couple hundred! We're looking for captains, leaders, adventurers, and fellow go-hards to jump onboard with us as we set sail on our Mayflower journey.
We're here to deliver joy through our mission of sharing the love. We do this by caring for our culture, our people, and the communities we serve. We hire for passion and attitude, and empower people to make a difference. Our battle cry, Charge!, reminds us how success happens, as we look to Colossians 3:23 for inspiration, pouring our hearts into everything we do.
LocalsLoveUs.com, the core of our word-of-mouth recommendation engine, helps consumers find the "most loved" businesses in a city, voted by local residents. Visitors can even filter results to include only opinions of people in a certain neighborhood, age group, gender, income level and more. Our printed directories, social media and local recognition programs round out our local consumer-to-business match-making system. Besides match-making, we are passionate about sharing the love in the communities we serve.
"I love my job. I really do. Every day I get to meet with owners and leaders of the most loved places in town - handing out awards, promoting them and selling advertising that helps people find places they love. Not looking for a job? Neither was I. But now, I can't imagine trading in these new relationships, freedoms and opportunities for anything. I love working for a company that's in the business of transforming my life and my community." – Ryan Bell, Local Sales Agent
