My Web Audit Vs. BrightLocal
The difference in a nutshell
BrightLocal makes it relatively simple to let website owners request a local SEO audit and provides a wealth of tools that make it easier to follow up with the site owner.
Many of BrightLocal's features are more suited to client interactions, however. That means that if you haven’t signed a deal with a business yet, you'll be less able than to demonstrate your value than you might like.
That, frankly, will make it harder to close more deals with BrightLocal… Especially if something else—like overall website health or ecommerce performance—is more important to your lead.
In other words, if you want to close deals around local SEO, Google citations, or reputation management, BrightLocal can help. If you'd like to sell anything else, it just won't do the trick.
My Web Audit (MWA) helps web professionals and agencies sell SEO projects—just like BrightLocal does.
But it also helps with so much more. With MWA, you can run reports on web design and site health, eCommerce management, conversion rate optimization, and other popular agency services… And you can do it all with attractive, actionable, easy-to-understand reports.
And with My Web Audit, you can do all of it before the sale, not after—which means you can use MWA to "get your foot in a lot more doors."
Bottom line: if you're interested in offering a full spectrum of services to your leads and clients—or even just the ones that BrightLocal ignores—MWA is what you need to succeed.
Want to sell a comprehensive slate of agency services?
You’ll need more than BrightLocal.
BrightLocal is among the best-in-class for talking to clients about things like local SEO, local citations, and reviews.
And with white-label reporting and an available lead-generation widget for local SEO, BrightLocal makes it somewhat easier to start that conversation in the first place.
The primary issue is that, yes, BrightLocal does a few things well—but ONLY those things.
On the other hand, My Web Audit gives freelancers and agencies a wide variety of reports—web design, conversion rate optimization (CRO), Google Business Profile, e-commerce, WordPress Technical assessment, and more.
That means, with MWA, you'll have more ways to start a sales conversation and more opportunities to deliver value.
MWA reports look beautiful and are professionally written in language that business owners can easily understand…
That means when you want to make a massive impact, demonstrate you can generate revenue and ROI, and offer value, you'll have so many more options than BrightLocal.
MWA reports address everything a business owner needs to succeed online in 2022 and beyond.
And since they measure what matters, you'll find it easier to sell. Why? Because your leads will know from the start that you're not simply pushing a local SEO plan—and instead, you care about helping them get better results.
If you're doing more than local SEO or reputation management—or something else
altogether—My Web Audit is the better choice.
This is an unbiased comparison, so let's get something straight—if you want to manage reviews or work with a client's citations, My Web Audit won't help. When you compare MWA to BrightLocal, only BrightLocal has those features.
BrightLocal is also great at helping leads and clients with local SEO and Google Business Profile.
But what if, for example, you want to offer your leads more than just ongoing SEO services, or you're just not interested in reputation management? If you're looking to close deals involving anything other than this limited scope, BrightLocal comes up short.
My Web Audit reports don’t just address SEO… They take care of everything else that today’s marketing-focused business owners consider essential: performance and security, user experience, conversion, online visibility, and even copy & content.
If you're selling other agency services like web design, ecommerce, or marketing, MWA is the only choice.
After all, you'll have a much easier time convincing leads to trust you when you can quickly and easily identify all their pain points and show that you can fix them...Which, of course, is precisely what My Web Audit does.
These happy My Web Audit users agree—MWA offers so much more than BrightLocal.
1 FB Post = 14 Audits = 1 Web Rebuild and other possible work.
It produces the best reports ever. What's funny is did 3 presentations to sell SEO services. What happened was they saw all the issues with their site and all 3 signed up for our web and SEO services! I just used the social media template post with our Chamber group to get leads. 1 FB Post = 14 Audits = 1 Web Rebuild and other possible work.

10X Return On Investment The First Week.
I can't believe I hesitated on signing up for the Agency Plan. I closed two projects in the first week using MyWebAudit. It more than paid for itself. This will be my standard procedure on new projects.
Sent my first audit to a $1k landing page, now signing up for a $3k retainer.
Well, that was easy. Sent my first audit to a $1k landing page project client who knew their WP site was trash and didn't know what to fix next. Now signing up for a $3k retainer.

I don't want other agencies to have this "secret sauce."
Great products change your process by creating new opportunities. Exceptional products create new opportunities and continue to grow and change to meet needs you didn't even realize you had. MyWebAudit is exceptional. I couldn't be happier. My only hesitation in recommending them is that I don't want other agencies to have this "secret sauce.
