Why is a Shop Local Directory important?
Many local business owners have great products and services but it is difficult to break through the noise of the big brands in an area. Over 76% percent of consumers do research online before making a buying decision.
People prefer to shop local when they have the chance. In fact 8 out of 10 consumers prefer to patronize local businesses over national chains.
Customers prefer to shop businesses who are easy to find online, have reviews, and communicate more online. A local business directory like Shop Local Surprise, allows even the smallest business to have an online presence, a way for customers to contact them and receive reviews!
Every dollar donated to Shop Local Surprise helps every local business in the community. One drop here ripples out to each business in the way of more exposure, events, and support.
