This summer Atlas Café, Bosley’s (Courtenay), Gladstone Brewing, The Waverley Hotel, Toscano’s Mediterranean Grill, Sure Copy Courtenay, My Tech Guys, and [add your business here] are giving away prizes as part of a unique “support local” contest we’re hosting.
LIFT was voted “best social media organisation” in the Comox Valley region last year. We think that’s because we’re doing a great job of supporting local entrepreneurs. This summer we’ve put $1000s in promotional support together with our social media clout to help people like you promote local businesses – and win great prizes this summer.
Why? Because every dollar spent locally helps grow our economy. That means local businesses thrive. That means local businesses create jobs. For example, we have about 25,000 households in the Comox Valley, and over 15K households in Campbell River. If every household spends $100 locally on goods and services they’d have bought out of town this summer, that will put about $4M back into our regional economy on this part of Vancouver Island.
That will help local businesses thrive. That will help local businesses create jobs.
Here’s how you can help us make that shift happen this summer:
Every post is your way to support local business in our communities.
Every #LIFTVIP post to Instagram is your way to support local and win prizes from great local businesses.
We’re drawing winners weekly in July, August, and September.
NOTE: If you’re ready to see your business featured in the #LIFTVIP promotion, please contact HPM now.
