Rumble acquires Locals to help build a bigger creator economy

Rumble acquires Locals

Combining the forces of Locals & Rumble will help boost and bring more value to the creator economy

Today, the video platform Rumble announced that it has acquired Locals Technology, Inc. Locals
revolutionary platform has quickly made it the premier subscription-based service for multimedia
content and community. Buying Locals furthers Rumble’s mission of giving creators unprecedented
autonomy over their work while providing audiences with quality content. Rumble is already one of the
most respected independent and privately-owned companies in the online video-sharing platform
industry. Acquiring Locals is part of Rumble’s broader effort to build a creator economy that fosters
creative independence.

Founded in 2019, Florida-based Locals is a platform that empowers independent content creators to
publish their content, engage with their supporters and make money from subscriptions. Creators
include: Scott AdamsTulsi GabbardZDoggMDMax LugavereRobert BarnesBridget PhetasyDr.
Drew
Karlyn BorysenkoGreg Gutfeld, and Michael Malice.

“We are building the rails to a new tech ecosystem that will free everyone from the restraints of
editorial control,” said Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski. “Locals will provide our Rumble users a new way to
generate revenue, one that is not influenced by corporate advertisers and special interests. All our
creators can now build a direct stream of revenue with their audience through subscriptions, allowing
creators to take control of their valuable content.”

Creators who use Locals own their community data and content. Locals has provided industry-leading
audience data that allow creators to understand the behavior of their audience better. Creators are
quickly able to see what content is effective at driving engagement and what isn’t.
Locals’ subscription business model is dependent on providing creators with high-quality information
about their audience. When a creator does well, the platform does well. This model enables Locals’
creators and audience to interact, share and comment to drive growth. 
  
Rumble is integrating Locals with its existing platform using Rumble’s cutting-edge cloud infrastructure.
Once active, a creator will simply need to link their Locals profile to their Rumble account. Additionally,
the Locals-Rumble handshake places a red Locals button on every Rumble video, indicating that a
creator is a Locals creator.

“We are excited to see Locals continue our growth and vision as part of Rumble Together we are
building a new ecosystem for creators,” said Assaf Lev, CEO of Locals. “Becoming part of Rumble will
give Locals’ creators new opportunities to expand their audiences while retaining control of their data.
Both Rumble and Locals believe in the importance of allowing creators to express their opinions,
interact with their supporters and make money from subscription.”
