“LocalHop fit our needs exactly. We wanted to partner with the city and the chamber of commerce on a community calendar. LocalHop allows us to do this while being able to feature just our own events on a calendar in a different location. Residents have all the area events in their pocket on the app. “

“The LocalHop team has been a pleasure to work with. They really listen to our feedback and are always striving to improve. Their enthusiasm for community is contagious, and their app offers a way to reach new audiences, with functionality and aesthetics that rival the savviest tech out there. I highly recommend giving LocalHop a try!”

“Our community has been asking for a calendar for years. LocalHop has provided a way for us to do it! My favorite thing is that they are super responsive to communication and suggestions for improvements on the user end. I also love that we are supporting a Michigan company. Take them up on the offer to test drive LocalHop; you’ll love it.”

“A great community partner! The community calendar feature they offer has made things so easy. They are very supportive and willing to help us with promoting events. Keep up the great work!”

“We switched our library’s event calendar from Evanced to LocalHop in August 2017 and both our patrons and staff have been extremely happy with the new calendar. It’s intuitive, user-friendly, and mobile-friendly from both the public interface and the staff interface. I can’t compliment the staff at LocalHop enough. They are extremely responsive to our requests and promptly make helpful improvements to the calendar. It’s been a pleasure working with LocalHop.”

Baldwin Public Library 

“Our staff and patrons love LocalHop. It’s simple for us to list events, and even easier for our patrons to find the programs they’re interested in. We recently started using our Community Calendar, and other local organizations are loving the opportunity to list their local events for free; our library’s website is becoming a community hub for information about what’s going on. We also truly appreciate LocalHop’s willingness to listen to feedback as they continue to develop the calendar and make it even better! “

“LocalHop is amazing and this new calendar makes my life so easy. One spot for me to post and it appears on my calendar and for new people to discover on LocalHop. A huge time saver and is also mobile friendly.”

Amy

“We recently moved to using the LocalHop calendar as our organization’s primary calendar, after working closely with the LocalHop team to ensure that it would fit our needs. The team was accessible to us throughout the implementation process and was instrumental in helping us with any issues we encountered. The entire process was painless, and the mobile-friendly calendar we now host is both user-friendly for our staff and easy to navigate for our guests. Thank you, LocalHop, for a great product!”

“We love the local nature of LocalHop listings. We know that people looking on that app are specifically looking for what we are offering. The sort features make it easy for me when I am looking for something to do. All around, a remarkable app!”

“I first heard about LocalHop at a library when I picked up a bookmark advertising about it. At the time, I was looking for new means to advertise for my library’s events. I thought this was a fantastic idea! I am now in charge of managing all event registrations on LocalHop for the Franklin Public Library, the Friends of Franklin Public Library, the Franklin Community Association, and the Franklin Historical Society. I use the basic setup, as our non-profits have small budgets, but I hope to convince them to use the ticketing and calendar services one day. In short, two words: GREAT APP!”
