We Get It. You’re Not Just A Business Owner.

You’re a risk-taker, doer, and a vital part of our community. You understand the critical role that local businesses play as the backbone of our economy. You employ our neighbors, staunchly support other local businesses, and often give to nonprofits until it hurts so that our entire community can thrive.

From The Bottom Of Our Hearts – Thank you!

Let’s face it, small businesses in our community need our support more than ever. The problem is, big box stores and corporate America are constantly trying to squeeze out the little guys.

And, while big tech platforms and corporate media companies suck billions of dollars out of our local communities, they simply don’t care about our local businesses and non-profits.

We Believe Our Community Deserves Better

At WhirLocal, we’re not a big tech or corporate media company, and because we’re local, we truly care about the success of our small businesses and non-profits in our community.

Our community-based website
includes a digital magazine and local business directory. Our goal is to be a positive voice in and for our community with local journalism and promotional efforts to support all things local.

We also provide free publishing and promotional tools that empower our local businesses and non-profits to promote themselves in the neighborhood without the drama and distraction of social media.

Neighborhood Sponsorship

Supporting our community through positive local journalism and providing promotional tools for small businesses and non-profits costs money, and let’s face it, we don’t have the budgets of Big Tech and Corporate Media. That’s why we need help from like-minded businesses like yours who also have a passion to support all things local. Your sponsorship would mean the world to us. 

By supporting our efforts to be a positive voice in our community, we in turn shine a spotlight on you as a community leader and help you grow your business with our proprietary WhirLocal Growth System.

Our Growth System Benefits Include:

Optimized WhirLocal Profile

Optimized WhirLocal Presence 

Any good growth strategy starts with an optimized online presence. We optimize how people find you on WhirLocal and even search engines like Google with special settings, making your business easier to discover. 

Think of your business’s online presence like a plant. Our Neighborhood Sponsor package is like giving your plant the best spot on the windowsill, where it gets more sunlight that can help it grow.

Online Reviews Made Easy

Reviews are a proven way to grow revenue. We automate the process of collecting and showcasing reviews from Google, Facebook, and on WhirLocal. Think of this as gathering a crowd of your happiest customers, all ready to tell anyone who listens just how great you are.

Online Reviews Made Easy

Did you know? 75% of consumers read online reviews at least regularly before making purchases for local businesses. Does your business stand out above your competition?

Not Ready For A Sponsorship?

Not quite ready to be a sponsor, but still want to support your local community? That’s where our Business Supporter package comes in. At just $297 a year, you get to show your support for your community and our efforts to provide positive local journalism, while at the same time enjoying the following benefits. 

  • Supporting Community Values: Just like choosing to buy your coffee from the local shop because you believe in supporting local businesses, joining us is about putting your money where your heart is, backing a platform that prioritizes local businesses and nonprofits over big tech and corporate media platforms.

  • Maximize Your WhirLocal Profile:  Unlock the full benefits of your WhirLocal profile and be able to fine-tune how people find you on WhirLocal, making your business easier to discover in our community and even on search engines. Plus, any links you share on your profile or on content you publish will carry more weight, helping more people find their way to you.

  • Standing Out in the Crowd: Your business is placed in front of all the free profiles in our local business directory. This means when people are looking for services or businesses in our directory, yours pops up ahead of the free profiles, giving you a better chance to catch their eye.

  • Building Community Connections: Just like in a vibrant neighborhood where everyone supports each other, our platform helps you connect to and build a network of recommended places, making the whole community stronger together. Plus, think of it like having a special bulletin board where all your favorite local businesses pin up their latest news and offers. We give you access to this board, automatically collecting all the cool stuff your friends in the business community are sharing.  

In short, for much less than the cost of a daily cup of coffee from your favorite local shop, you can join a community of like-minded businesses working together to make our local area a better place, get your business noticed more online, and build meaningful connections that help everyone grow together. It’s about being part of something bigger, where your business isn’t just a name on a list, but a key player in a thriving local ecosystem.
