- Online Listing - Your media-enhanced business listing is part of the GO LOCAL LIST at golocal.coop, the only place where you can find an online directory of ONLY locally owned businesses in Sonoma County.
- Print Listing in Pocket Guide - Member listings are also displayed in Pocket Guide, 10,000 published and printed 2x/year. Distributed throughout Sonoma County at over 100 GO LOCAL merchant locations.

Marketing Strategy and Support
The GO LOCAL team has 13 years of experience understanding and serving marketing needs of locally owned businesses, helping them thrive. Schedule an individual session in person or on phone to learn best practices and strategies for your specific business. Available annually.
Refer Local Lunchtime Gathering
Members are invited to attend and introduce themselves and their business at monthly networking lunches every second Friday, with the option to sign up for a 10-min feature presentation. Refer Local is based on the spirit of members working together to strengthen relationships and to give, receive, and track quality referrals to increase profits and customers.
GO LOCAL Rewards Card
All members can participate in the GO LOCAL Rewards Card program. By offering a reward to a large and loyal GO LOCAL customer base as a thanks for choosing local first, your business can get more exposure, sales & community connection. While the GO LOCAL shared brand tells people why local first is important, the Rewards Card helps people take action to choose local first.
Each merchant can customize their reward to suit their specific needs through a “show the card” offer. Offering Rewards is included as part of GO LOCAL membership and optional.
Current members can opt to apply up to 1/3 of their membership fee to any of GO LOCAL’s media offers, strategically designed for locally owned businesses.
