How Our $8 Million Shared Brand Gets Results

Watch this video to see and hear members describe the benefits they've received using GO LOCAL Shared Branding.

 
 

What Tom Scott of Oliver's Market has to say about the effectiveness of GO LOCAL membership:

"Sales of local products have grown about 35% in the past two years—about twice as fast as non-local products.  It's (GO LOCAL) been amazingly good for business."
 
GO LOCAL's marketing goal is to shift purchasing of goods and services from non-local to local businesses.
 
The greater our brand value, the greater our influence to shift behavior.  We don't ask people to buy more of anything.  We do ask that they make a conscious choice—local first.
 
Our group advertising programs like Made Local, Bank Local and Rewards Card concentrate the power of our shared brand to accomplish more than any one member could do alone.
