Better Marketing Practices

You and your merchants can Become Effective at Local Marketing Without Having to Become an Expert
Marketing is Better When Most of it is Automated

Are you involved with a Main Street, Downtown Association or Chamber of Commerce and wonder, "How can we promote our community and members more effectively with limited staff time and budget?"

A rising tide raises all ships & local cross-promotion creates a stronger community for all but does managing your membership ever feel like herding cats? Does coordinating promotional activities drive you to tears? Do you struggle to attract new members?

Locable is “like a community’s own social network.” - Lindsay Henderson, Vitality Director Webster City Iowa

Focus on Relationships and Let Technology do the Heavy Lifting to Promote Your Community

Distribute your content to local businesses that endorse you and be recognized by nonprofits you support to reach more people. Do them a solid by including them on your website through a self-updating Community Calendar, Job Board, Directory, and more... The more the merrier.
