Or, are you the next to fall?
It is said that recession to you is when the place next door experiences depression, and depression is you experience recession.
The collision course for local businesses has been set, and with it we can say good bye to the local communities and society as we know it. Main Streets all over the world have been decimated by the web. Businesses have been lied to, deceived, used and abused. The business pages and listings extended to local businesses free on websites such as Google, Bing, Yelp, became receptacles to monetize their programs and advertise competitors, all for the sake of better user experience. Every major website you visit, if you business is on it your competition is with it. With some, if your competition is not on your page is because you are paying a ransom.
Amazon ultimate community friendly approach generates thousands of low paying jobs to benefit from tax breaks while their real plan is to eliminate those jobs with obedient robotics.
It is time to reset the course and prevent Titanic ends.
Here is what we do:
- We combine the email lists of several non-competing local businesses.
- We forward an email to all in the list for permissions.
- Each business will be given a special page where they can edit their message as often as they like.
- The email notifications we send out are very simple, consisting of a short introduction, a community summary including events and a link to a web page where they can see all the participating local businesses and nearby. Never crowded.
- Businesses can offer sales, coupons, classes, accept payments, summarize their services.
- No website is required, the special page can be used as their online flier.
- Who qualifies: restaurants, law firms, plumbers, electricians, handyman, stores, any type of company that people randomly or eventually need services or products their offer.
- These companies will be very local to the email recipients and don’t have to charge for extra travelling long distances. Local companies also save money and time by getting jobs closer to where they are.
This will be extremely advantageous now that online companies begin to charge more that local retailers. It will help revitalize local communities. It will also help keep the money in the community.
We send the emails several times per month with permission.
The email list owners can always cancel out and take their list with them. They can get their original list or their managed list at no charge.
