At the most basic level, buying local ensures that more money stays in our community. In fact, for every $100 spent at a locally-owned store, $45 remains in the local economy. The Chamber of Commerce encourages all residents to shop small and support our locally owned businesses! Shopping locally provides you with the opportunity to discover something different; it’s unlikely that you’ll find the same thing at a local store as you would the mall. Save Local Now, the Chamber’s “Buy Local” program, highlights and promotes Chamber members and the deals and promotions they create. Locals and tourists alike can download the FREE Save Local Now app to access deals, events and accurate business information. Saving money and buying local has never been easier!

Save Local Now was built by a Chamber exec specifically for Chamber members (especially small to medium sized businesses). Many of us are confused by digital and social media marketing. Without spending a fortune, how are we supposed to compete with larger companies with a much larger marketing budget? Email marketing costs money. Search engine optimization costs money. Social media management costs money.

While these components of digital marketing cost money, they are also essential for survival in the online market place.

That’s why Chambers of Commerce choose to partner with Save Local Now; to bring FREE digital marketing tools to their Chamber members.

With Save Local Now every member has access to their very own digital marketing platform. This platform lets members publish business promotions like: “BOGO for First Time Customers!” – “We’re open late on Wednesday’s” or “Check out our new product now sold in store!”

The SLN platform allows members to 1-click share those business promotions to their own social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

With the SLN digital platform members are also able to share those business promotions through SLN’s free email marketing. SLN reminds us that SOCIAL MEDIA IS TO REACH MORE CUSTOMERS, EMAIL MARKETING IS TO GENERATE REVENUE.

Lastly, SLN provides FREE search engine optimization to each and every member’s profile. SLN will help place your members higher and higher on search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, allowing local consumers to find their products and services more quickly and efficiently.

Note for members: Regardless of if you have a small business or big business, there is benefit here. Online marketing for your business that you can do quickly, easily and completely free of charge.

Why is buying local so important to businesses and the economy as a whole?

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 instead of these “big box” corporations, consumers can rest assured knowing that they’re doing their part at keeping their communities unique and thriving.

How does buying local save money?

Buying local saves people money in several ways. These small businesses are close to home, meaning that many people don’t need to travel far to get to them. Products (like fruit and produce) are made or grown at local locations, so they don’t have to travel far to get where they’re going. This means that, in many cases, there is no middle man. This translates to lower prices for the business owner and, of course, the consumer.

What are the current trends you’re seeing in local communities?

Saving money by buying local. I’ve noticed that many chambers of commerce (more specifically those that have partnered with Save Local Now) are encouraging “buy local” initiatives. Now more than ever chambers and their small businesses recognize that when consumers buy local, they are also assisting in the creation and retention of jobs.

Where do you see local businesses in the next few years? Few decades?

I only see communities and their local businesses growing stronger. Many of us concern ourselves with “what’s trending.” These “buy local” promotions are most definitely trending, but I also believe they’re here to stay. People genuinely care about their communities; they want a booming downtown area, safe streets to walk on, job opportunities and friendly atmospheres. Honestly though, who doesn’t? I don’t see small business going anywhere any time soon.

You partner closely with chambers of commerce. What are some things you do together?

We partner exclusively with chambers of commerce to help their member businesses. We discovered that many of these small business owners didn’t have the tools they need to ensure a successful business. We void that gap by partnering with the chamber. The chamber pays for SLN services, and their members get SLN as an added benefit for being a member of the chamber. Currently, Save Local Now is in 27 states, and more than 80,000 member businesses have received SLN as a NO-COST member benefit. Here at Save Local Now, we are all about the small business owner, and will do whatever we can to guarantee the success of that business, the community they’re in, and the chamber of commerce that supports them.
