The site is always free to shoppers, and merchants normally pay between $50 and $70 per year. This service lets merchants create unlimited web pages about their local stores and offerings. It also includes marketing tools for email campaigns, search engine optimization, and social media integration – all with an easy-to-use interface. The Local-Seeds company is also offering training and consulting services to select areas.
Company founder Meghan Strader said, “We are so excited to be offering this First Year Free promotion.” She added that the promotion gives merchants a way to try out the service to be sure it is right for them. “We believe we offer the best way for businesses and shoppers to connect within local communities, and we love supporting local economies.”
The Local-Seeds company got its start in the Mansfield, Ohio area. Since then they have begun expanding their user base to Columbus and other parts of Ohio. Strader founded the company with her husband in an effort to make it easier to shop locally and to bring the Main Street economy into the digital age.
