In the winter of 2022, we began working with Locable to launch a website and implement an overall marketing push.
The Goal: Create a simple yet contemporary website that is easier for volunteers to manage and, subsequently, improve our ability to promote merchants, local events and activities, and support the community.
Local businesses, nonprofits, and other local organizations around Kalkaska are now participating because of these primary benefits:
Enable Kalkaska to promote members automatically to reach more people with automatic distribution of upcoming events, offers/coupons, job opportunities, business information in the directory, and more
Enable the merchants and organizations to promote each other and events on their existing websites thus Supporting the community - automatically
Provide free Locable Marketing Tools to enable each of the merchants and organizations to promote themselves online
To tap into their Local Connections™ to drive exposure, reach, and referrals through other local organizations in the region
