When you shop local more money returns to your local economy than if you spend that same dollar at a chain store.

Even with a smaller budget, you can give more this holiday season. How? By shopping local. Join the Shop Indie Local movement!  We’re purchasing more of our holiday gifts and celebration needs from our friends and neighbors — locally owned business owners.  Please join us!

Why Shop Indie Local?

When you spend your dollars at locally owned businesses more money returns to our local economy than if you spend that same dollar at a chain store.  That dollar recirculates through your economy, generating ripple effects that strengthen jobs, charitable contributions and community prosperity.

Shop Indie Local and Give More (Fill in the Blank)

Think about the people you love. Instead of stuff, what do you truly want to give them?  Perhaps it’s more hope, inspiration or connection.  Now, consider each person, place and thing that plays a part in growing, making and getting that gift to your loved one.  When you Shop Indie Local, you give more to everyone.

For example, I want to give more hope to a dear friend.  I find a one-of-a-kind handmade lamp, one that I know will make my friend’s day a bit brighter.  The artist who made the lamp, closed out from their regular holiday events, feels a bit more hope that they’ll make it through 2020 and my friend feels more hope every time she clicks the lamp’s switch on.  What do you want to give more of this year?

An effective social media post will inspire, intrigue, and prompt your audience to learn more about your crowdfunding campaign. 

 

In order to create effective social media posts to share with your network, you want to make sure you’re communicating in a way that inspires, intrigues, and ideally prompts your audience to learn more about your campaign. 

As you craft your content, regardless of which platform you’re sharing it on, be sure to touch on all of the following as you build your most effective social media post: 

  • Who are you speaking to and who are you speaking about?
  • What is it that you’re excited to share with them today?
  • When and where is what you’re sharing happening? Is there a deadline, an event, any specifics that are pertinent to a viewer of your message who is interested in participating further?
  • Why should they, or any member of your audience, care to listen, learn more, or support you?
  • Last, but not least, how should they move forward? This is your call to action, and it’s key to any effective marketing message!

Your best social media content will communicate in a way that inspires, intrigues, and ideally prompts your audience to learn more about your campaign.
