About Brian Oviatt
My goal with these pages is to spread awareness of the many opportunities to shop and support local businesses giving them one more option to market.
While online shopping is here to stay, there is still are still opportunities to shop local and keep that money in the community. It is important for local businesses to having marketing online to compete with the internet shopping options. This can be a big expensive. While the internet does have free options, those only cater to people that already now your business and really work on a pay to play to reach more people. My goal is to give businesses one more place to market and is supported by people in their community. I plan to use your contributions to buy paid marketing to directly and indirectly promote local businesses.
I currently work professionally in digital marketing helping small businesses develop marketing plans, and I have also owned and operated a couple small businesses. So can see the marketing challenges on both sides. I do not wish to create conflicts of interest with my job or use these pages as a way to get new clients. My desire is to serve both consumers and business owners and build awareness to these local options.
To give full disclosure I will list my plan with you contribution.
My plan of contributions:
80% of contributions going to pay for paid advertising of social media pages and other marketing channels. Main focus will be Facebook, Instagram, Google/Youtube, and other marketing means depending on left over budget.
20% of contributions to me as compensation and to pay other no ad expenses.
To ensure that I am keeping these promises I will provide monthly reports to contributors and also I will be building an independant team to audit financials.
