SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) - Reply!, Inc. today announced the launch of MerchantCircle Branded Profiles, a new product that enables large, national brands and organizations to build locally-targeted pages for their members on MerchantCircle.com, the nation's largest online network of local business owners.
By building their locally-targeted online presence with MerchantCircle Branded Profiles, national brands offering local services can build a more robust online presence and more efficiently reach local customers. As one of the top six destinations for local searches, MerchantCircle.com can dramatically increase new customer acquisition for its members. For example, an insurance company can launch profiles for each one of their local agents, and have customer inquiries direct either to each individual agent or to a central corporate location.

"It's our mission to make locally-targeted marketing more profitable, targeted and scalable for advertises of all sizes. Branded Profiles offers national brands a unique way to reach their local customers in every state and every city in the country."

- Tools to communicate with consumers: brands can insert customized solutions allowing them to efficiently interact with their customers.
- Request a Quote Button: brands have the ability to direct consumers to their website or directly to their local representatives who can serve them.
