Remember the days when supermarkets and tourist centres had pin boards for advertising businesses, services, jobs, places of interest or events ? Find It Locally P/L created a digital board where services, products, events and businesses can be pinned as links.
Linking to stuff is what we understand, and sure, google relies on it. Consumers are redirected to a page, a website or other digital presence where they can see more..
UNLIKE GOOGLE PAGES OUR FUNDRISE PROJECT TAKES “FINDING THINGS” TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
We all understand the value of a vibrant local business community, a place where business thrives, and jobs, opportunities and resources are more accessible. But when life gets tough and the economy suffers, finding opportunities diminish, and the boost NFP services provide also diminish as fundraising sources dry up. Raffles, giving programs, chocolate drives, fetes and fairs are not a viable strategy.
THAT’S WHY OUR PROJECT IS UNIQUE
WHY BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY CAN SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE FUNDRAISING
THE BURDEN OF MARKETING
As a rule of thumb, Small Business spends between 2% and 5% of their annual revenue on marketing. In addition there are often web costs, signage and more. While few dispute the value of marketing for business wellbeing, we can ask ourselves when times are tough – is it really worth the expense ?
Fundrise enables businesses to convert the concept of marketing as a ‘burden of cost’ ~ to experiencing it as opportunity for community growth.
Find It Locally is developing a complex multi-level digital system across all communities in Australia. They have 8800 digital hubs with shopping centres, business directories, event and local voucher deal pages. Both local community hubs and wider regional product, service and interest group browsers are online and ready indexed in major engines such as google.
Businesses tapping into this marketing platform will be supporting local NFPs and their community work. Every marketing $$ will be spent donated to your community.
How does this work ?
