Businesses create jobs, circulate profits and support local service providers. Whether your business is locally owned or not, it has an impact on the economy of your community, the region and beyond. Join us to learn what impact your business has, how to market your local attributes to consumers who love local, and how you can participate in our buy local campaign in your area.
LOCO BC, Vancity and Ambleside-Dundarave Business Improvement Area (ADBIA) are planning a workshop and social media/digital advertising campaign to measure the impact of area businesses and promote buy local stories of businesses to area consumers. The workshop and campaign are free to your business. At the workshop you'll receive marketing and promotional collateral to help you share the positive impact your local business has on your community.
The workshop will cover:
- Your business’ community impact
- Why & how to do buy local marketing
- Retail trends & consumer interest in buy local marketing
- Overview of the #BCBuyLocal Campaign
- Tips & tricks for digital marketing
- How to leverage your community impact in your marketing
Following the workshop, we'll produce buy local profiles for some participating businesses.
This event is free of charge. Refreshments will be served. Please register in advance. If you can't make the workshop, but would still like to participate in the campaign, contact us.
Thanks to Vancity and Ambleside-Dundarave Business Improvement Association (BIA) for your partnership on this event!
