How to Localize Your Business Toolkit

Shifting your business’ product and service providers to local, independent businesses is not only great for the community by helping to keep your dollars local and preserve our culture and character, it’s also a great PR story for your company. Lowcountry Local First would like to tell the story of YOUR business going local! Please contact our Director of Marketing and Communications, Jordan Amaker, at jordan@lowcountrylocalfirst.org.

Below, we’ve included some ideas for shifting to local. We’ve primarily highlighted Lowcountry Local First members, because they are investing in the greater good of the community by investing in our organization.

Are we missing something? Please contact CT Burton and we’ll help you find what you’re looking for: ct@lowcountrylocalfirst.org or 843-801-3390.
