    First, let me start by saying that I'm not selling anything here.

    Today I was thinking about the ORM and Local SEO tools I have been using. Some are bought, some are borrowed. Some software I tried for a 30 day trial, but it wasn't worth it to keep. Some tools are helpful in some situations, but not others which makes it difficult to justify a purchase if I'm not going to use it regularly. Now in the black hat world, there are a ton of people running shared VPS's with software like SENuke, Xrummer etc. I don't have a great need for stuff like that. What I would be interested in is a shared VPS with tools like:

    Places Scout
    GP Places
    Local Rank Tracker

    Access to services like:
    Bright Local
    Whitespark
    Vendasta
    Hubshout
    51 Blocks
    Reputation Kahuna
    seOverflow

    I was thinking it would be able for people to have instant access to research tools as well as white label reports and services (obviously some things are free and other providers make you pay for certain features), this could help people across a wide range of experience and involvement across the Local SEO/ORM spectrum.

    With the service providers, I would approach them as if "we" were one agency and everyone in our "agency" would have access to the tools on the VPS.

    So my questions are:

    Does something like this exist? If so, what? Where? How much? Is it any good?

    What's missing from the list if this idea is ever made to be viable?

    If you are interested in exploring the idea further, please drop me a PM to discuss.

    this is a great idea. I'm going to poke around and see if something like this exists
    I would love to try out Vendasta.
    BTW do you know the pricing on that?

    Thanks

    It sounds like a good plan. But I think it will need some tweaking as in how to set it up, prices to use etc. But the all in all plan is good :)

    Great Idea, I have started the process of setting up an offline company in Australia. I have been "lurking" on BHW on and off for a while but will certainly be contributing much more from now on. This thread seems to have lost its momentum but Local SEO and the 7878 method is by far the the best business model I have found that is not being exploited to its potential in the Australian market. I have planned all of my resources, registered the business, started developing the site and am ready to start my Australian market domination in 2014. Like minded peers on a similar path, pooling resources will help each other greatly and I want to be a part of it.

    Grant, I myself have been inspired by the 7878 method, and have also taken action. I must agree that the Australian market is relatively untapped in the sense of reviews or ORM. By the way, what city are you from?
