About Us

SeeLocal is an innovative digital advertising platform with a focus on transforming the way businesses advertise locally.

Our mission is to help businesses launch effective and measurable online advertising campaigns that reach relevant audiences in specified local areas through one easy to use interface.

The story of SeeLocal

After working in senior positions for some of the worlds largest digital marketing companies, SeeLocal Founder John Hones set up his own full service digital agency in 2010. Within months John realised that many businesses, especially those with limited local resources, would often make costly mistakes that would result in little or no return on investment using the online advertising platforms they had available. The alternative? Employing a digital agency, which in most cases meant paying more for the management services than paying networks to show their ads. Subsequently, this meant budgets were soon spent with not a lot to show for it.
For this reason, many businesses with a requirement for truly local advertising campaigns are still limiting themselves to local newspapers and magazines as their main form of advertisement, running the high risk of not reaching the correct audiences.
In 2015 we started developing the SeeLocal platform, which included features such as a landing page creator and ad builder. We have also integrated our unique CampaignGuard algorithm which protects an advertiser’s budget should they not hit campaign targets and improves overall campaign performance.
Every day we’re partnering with more businesses in our mission to transform their ability to engage and attract relevant audiences in specific local areas.



The magic happens at our head office, based in the Warwickshire royal town of Leamington Spa.


Supporting our lead developers at head office, we have a team of web wizards based in the Ukraine.


Planned for 2018. As we continue to break into global markets, our next office will be setup in the USA.
