About Epilocal

Greg Dickens

Hi, I'm Greg.

I'm from a small town in America that like many rural areas around the world, feels left behind by today's society. I want to see small communities like mine, get back on their feet with independent businesses and local news that keep jobs in the area and bring pride and connection back to the people.

Epilocal is my attempt to take the skills that I learned working for years in finance, startups and technology to build online tools that can help make this happen. My tools can help all businesses, but they are built with small and local in mind.

What We Do

Our products make it easier for small businesses to get their analytics in one place and for content publishers to automate and scale.

  • We have built connectors for Data Studio that allow small businesses to centralize their analytics there, while we also do custom integration/data warehousing projects on request
  • Our Automation Hub and Google Docs integration for the Ghost content management system (CMS) allow its users to streamline their content operations

We also offer all of our tools along with hosting at a discounted price to local news publishers as part of our NewsCloud program.

Our Values

No Lock-in

We encourage businesses to use open-source platforms like Ghost and Plausible Analytics that allow you to take your data with you. Our tools are some of the first in the marketplace that integrate with these platforms.

Small Town Service

We will only accept your money if you are satisfied. Maybe it's an old-fashioned way of doing business, but we think it's the only way. We have never refused a refund request for any reason and we are responsive to feature requests and support issues.

Transparency

We are upfront about the business and what it stands for and we try to share as much detail as possible. You can read our Open Blog which has behind the scenes news and will also soon have company metrics like revenue and number of customers.
