Even though I concur that Patch could potentially be very useful for some businesses, it did not work out for us. Our primary complaints are as follows:
1. Representative changed frequently. They have high turnover which results in a new name, and often times emails, updates, and implementations faced large delays.
2. Poor click through rate. Although a number of issues can go into this, we found that we had very strong CTR from other sites running the exact same advertisements, and poor results on Patch.
3. Primitive to non-existent reporting. We got infrequent PDFs with limited information. It was handled through email (See point 1).
Anyway, those are my first hand observations. Your millage may vary.
