WE ARE COMMUNITY

Running a business isn't easy, especially in times like this. But by working together, collaborating, sharing ideas and inspiration can go a long way to minimizing the impact of the current situation.

Our ongoing mission is to empower our local businesses and now is no different.  To ensure a smart restart, we are offering localMana free for 2 months. This will position you to restart in a position to grow. If you would like a demo to learn how to leverage localMana, sign up for a zoom meeting below. 

What can I say, the phone keeps ringing.  I don't have time for social media so having my fans recommend me on their facebook pages works for me.

Why I'm part of localMana

I'm a small business owner. I own a vintage store and I want to tell you why I am part of localMana. I get approached by someone almost every week wanting to sell me the next best thing to advertise my business. A map, a print ad, coupon flyer, google, yelp, a networking group etc.  $300 here, $400 there, it adds up. Sometimes I give a service a try but not once have I had any real success and frankly, I'm tired of spending time and money on things I can't control. I use facebook and Instagram and do get some success there, but most of my "followers" will never become real customers.

localMana changes that. I like that fact that not only am I am in complete control of my success but localMana is locally focused and if I choose, I can connect to other shops like mine. We can work together to grow our businesses! The best part is that the people I interact with within my community actually love vintage goods. So It's easy to get their attention. All I have to do is post something, which I do on facebook anyway. Now I post on localMana, share it to facebook and I get the best of both worlds.  

I have many wonderful customers that visit my shop often. With localMana, I can tell who my most active customers are and I have a way to reward them when they support my business.

An added bonus - I used to pay for constant contact to send my monthly newsletters but now I don't have to. Email is included in the localMana subscription.


The Premise

If you are like most businesses, you spend time posting on different social sites and more likely than not, you get minimal engagement in terms of likes, shares or comments. You might even belong to multiple networking groups, spend money on email and other things to promote your business!

Getting results is hard, isn't it?


Not on localMana! localMana is different. We give you the ability to share your knowledge with a relevant audience and then we reward that audience for sharing that knowledge with their social friends and family. You still get the benefit of your social sites by posting on localMana and then share it to your social pages too!

How it works

localMana creates your branded presence including a business page, graphic and email (that's right email is included)  and then adds you to a relevant community. For instance, if you own a Pet Store, we'd create a community called Dogs are Amazing which gets populated with loads of people and nonprofits that LOVE dogs.

Then instead of posting on facebook, twitter or LinkedIn, post on localMana using any one of our six activities and then share it to your social sites. When anyone in your community engages with your post, they get rewarded. EASY!  BTW, unlike other social sites, we do not filter your posts so if you post it, everyone sees it!

The bottom line. It's incredibly easy and by spending just a few minutes a week telling your story, you'll get more leads, more customers and more revenue.
