About Us

We help people connect with top-rated local businesses.

The team behind 1LocalBusiness.com is a tight-knit team of digital marketing problem solvers. We’re real people who answer the phone and stand behind what we say.

We are a group of local small business owners ourselves, brought together by a common passion for technology and small business marketing – and most certainly a collective obsession for fishing, surfing, cold beer, tasty food, and golf too.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help every local business embrace the digital age to grow their business & better serve their communities.

We aim to do this by providing cutting-edge marketing & advertising services that help local businesses acquire & retain more new customers.

We are proud to have served with integrity & accountability since 2010 by providing exemplary service that our clients are proud to refer to their colleagues.

We understand it takes time for you to align the forces necessary to get your business to where it needs to go; is that a process that ever ends?

Whether its budgetary concerns or awareness of the digital marketing landscape, we’re here to work with you – for your local business.

Ultimately we aim to partner with local small businesses in their success by designing and maximizing automated custom digital marketing solutions.

Success with any marketing – whether offline or online, grass-roots, guerrilla, and global – is a return on investment.

To small business owners ROI only means three things:

1. More new customers
2. Increasingly loyal existing customers
3. Improved productivity

Results are all that matters, everything else is just explanation.

Our Founder & CEO

Chris Barnard

Chris Barnard

Founder & CEO

Following a entrepreneurial stint in sports media and a rewarding consulting career helping dentists navigate the digital marketing landscape, Chris started 1LocalBusiness.com in 2010.

At that time social media was in its infancy, and the thought of a restaurant, dentist, contractor, real estate agent, corporate conglomerate, or retail business using Facebook, Twitter – or any social media – was considered an exercise in futility at best, more like a punchline.

Since that time Chris is proud to have personally had a hands-on impact in delivering cost-effective, sustainable new customer acquisition & retention service to local small businesses around the United States, but especially right here in Carlsbad, CA.

Chris believes in transparency & accountability above profit. He thrives on delivering results, extrapolating actionable insights from multiple data sources, and taking decisive action to exceed individual client goals.

As a native of Long Island, New York, Chris has been enjoying life here in Carlsbad, CA since 2001.

“Coffee, fishing, surfing, skiing, hunting, beer & golf is my only vice.”
