MERCHANTS: GO LOCAL for the Holidays - 2019

Aug. 27, 2019

If holiday sales are important to your business, you’ll do some promotion.

When you use our GO LOCAL shared branding, you and everyone else benefits to a much greater degree. It’s common sense, right?

Media impressions (the number of times shoppers see a message) climb from a few thousand impressions to millions when we work together with shared holiday branding. That equals successful results.
