Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce Launches
SHAWANO WI—Effective November 1st, the Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce is introducing a new marketing advantage for local businesses—Save Local Now™ --a deal and event App for iPhone and Android. This new program provides local businesses with the mobile marketing tools they need to reach today’s consumer. Save Local Now™ is unlike any daily deal service on the market. There are no minimum purchase requirements, no delays in uploading or changing deals, and most importantly, there are no fees to businesses and organizations in the Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce. All member businesses have been automatically uploaded onto the Save Local Now platform. Those that choose to offer a deal, event or special promotion can upload it themselves and change it as frequently as they wish.
Unlike other savings Apps, Save Local Now™ provides total control to the merchants. They can access their business profile and change their deals, events or promotions without needing to wait for a third-party administrator. The offers are immediately made available through the Save Local Now iPhone and Android Apps, mobile website, and savelocalnow.com.
According to Nancy Smith, executive director of the Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce, the chamber contracted with Save Local Now after spending the past year researching shop local and daily deals programs. “We felt it was important to find a program that would change consumer behavior by rewarding them for shopping local. Save Local Now provides that incentive and gives total control to the business. Each business decides what deal or incentive to offer and for how long. They are not required to offer discounts of 50% - 75% like with some well-known daily deal programs. Save Local Now is a win-win for the businesses and their customers,” said Smith.
“Community organizations are looking for creative ways to market themselves, and be an asset to the businesses they serve,” said Keith Latore, Save Local Now’s co-founder and CEO. “That’s why we created Save Local Now exclusively for chambers of commerce and community organizations. Save Local Now benefits everyone. The Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce now has a tool to help promote local businesses and organizations while encouraging people to shop local. Business members have access to an iPhone and Android app they might not otherwise be able to afford. Consumers have a convenient source for finding local businesses, deals, events and promotions.” Save Local Now utilizes GPS functionality in order to draw residents and visitors alike to Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce member information.
The Chamber’s partnership with Save Local Now is made possible by Shawano Country Vision 2017—a five-year economic plan to help businesses create 1,000 jobs.
