Our team regularly communicates with downtown districts, business alliances, and fellow entrepreneurs who want to learn about our program. We’ve learned that there is a strong, unmet demand for a product true in spirit to the ‘buy local’ movement.
And, while many organizations are working to promote the ‘buy local’ spirit in their community, we also know that it can be difficult to quantify these efforts in measurable dollars and cents terms. We also see numerous organizations that struggle with the accounting challenges associated with paper gift certificate programs. This is where Buoy Local can help. Buoy Local is a mobile app-based program that helps promote local businesses by using one-of-a-kind technology to keep more money in our local communities. The Buoy Local card is linked to the mobile app and allows the cardholder to earn points in their account on every transaction they conduct with the Buoy Local card at participating local businesses. The mobile app allows cardholders to easily find locally owned businesses and see what promotions are being offered within their communities.
