What our Local Business Partners are saying about Go Buy Local...

Go Buy Local is all about supporting local community & giving back; benefiting education & civic groups; and making your marketing dollars work for you... as a direct response vehicle consistent with current celebrations and keeps aligned with my operational goals. As an independently owned retail business, I have been committed to providing resources to local groups. Go Buy Local provides structure that gives attention & recognition to that responsibility. The web-based technology platform enables communication with local organizations, end users, and the business to cost effectively manage more on-line retail presence, promotional offers, & customer interactions. All of this made possible by the Go Buy Local support team that keeps the goals in focus and the mechanics moving forward.

Small business advertising can be tricky sometimes. At Valley Services (as a small business), we needed to figure out where we can get the most value out of our advertising dollars. Go Buy Local really stood out... to us because of their giving nature. We are involved in various charity organizations and giving back is important to us. When we heard that 10% of Go Buy Local money goes back to the schools, we were hooked! They market directly to the consumer with easy communication because of Facebook and Twitter. Go Buy Local interacts with the small businesses and the community members on Facebook daily. This allows us to make relationships and connections with the community members! Thanks Go Buy Local!

It has been a pleasure to work with Go Buy Local over the past year. Your attention to detail and client service has been great. From marketing strategies, to timely graphics execution... , to emailing my monthly offer to my customers and posting our offers on Facebook/Twitter… Go Buy Local is a real package deal. Not only have you increased Bruegger's awareness; but, coupon redemption has been steady. We also enjoyed participating in the Hudson School District check presentation this past November. Giving back to the community is important to Bruegger's. We have also participated in the Go Buy Local Gives program and are pleased to help the local Hudson causes as well. To me, it is important to keep local dollars benefiting our Hudson community.

Through your efforts to strengthen the small business community, the schools and offer deals to our customers, Hudson will be a stronger community!

The thing I appreciate the most about Go Buy Local is that my local community representative works hard at keeping my business - and my town - in the limelight... . Her tireless efforts on social media, as well as her presence at public events, has kept our Go Buy Local efforts in front of customers. The monthly coupon sheets have really made an impact - customers regularly use them at my business and the others in town. I know I do! But I think the thing that makes all of us proud is the amount we are giving back to our local schools. It's hard to run a business and still find ways to contribute. Go Buy Local makes it so easy!
