Why is local part of the platform?
The local in LoCo+ provides you a home base advantage to grow your audience, alongside building community with other local creators. You will have to choose one city and state in the signup, but this won’t keep you from being discovered by audiences and fans outside your local market. The platform also allows for discoverability by genre and likeness.

If I’m not a LoCo+ Creator yet, or I’m still deciding if it's right for me, can I attend Creator Townhalls?
No, but you can attend our monthly LoCo Curious Open Houses on Zoom on the last Tuesday of every month. To get the invite, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
