Save Local Now, a FREE chamber member benefit, is here to help small business drive consumer traffic. Now more than ever we see the value in supporting local business. At the most basic level, buying local ensures that more money stays in the community. In fact, for every $100 spent at a locally owned store, $45 remains in the local economy. By shopping at the local “mom and pop” style store, consumers can rest assured knowing that they’re doing their part of keeping their communities unique and thriving.
This highlights the vast importance of Save Local Now’s “Buy Local” initiative. What we mustn’t forget is that buying local actually saves money. Small businesses are often close to home, meaning that you don’t have to travel as far to get there. Products (like fruit and produce) are made or grown at local locations, meaning that they don’t have to travel as far to get to you. This means that, in many cases, there is no middle man (which translates to lower prices for the business owner and, of course, the consumer).
Save Local Now gives endless amounts of support to small businesses; more specifically the marketing tools they need to better promote their business. We know how busy the small business owner is; we know how little time there is for email marketing, social media, etc. The tools we give small business owners, such as free SEO services, deal and event publishing, email marketing, real-time analytics, etc. is so crucial to helping their bottom line. Essentially, Save Local Now created an easy way for small business to be everywhere consumers are today.
