More than a directory listing, it allows local shoppers to find the products, services and events they want by searching stores and places within a 50-mile radius. The site also allows users to subscribe to email promotions to favorite stores alerting them to sales, specials and events happening in their neighborhoods. All shoppers can create a free account and be entered into a Launch Giveaway with prizes up to $100.
Local businesses are often frustrated by seeing no way around spending thousands of dollars on a website to get their products seen but still compete with the national retailers in search engine results. With this product, merchants get a user-friendly interface that allows them to create 1000 pages of content, have visibility on the mobile version of the site and see usage reports for a low yearly cost. Merchants can pre-register and save $10, making the cost of a year’s access $39.99 - $59.99.
Local crafters, hobbyists, and farms are also encouraged to participate. “We would love to see the Main Streets become vibrant again,” says founder and President Meghan Strader. “We believe that people have many skills and talents to share with their communities, but that has somehow been lost to national retailers. We want to bring it back!”
