Local Business Online Toolkit
At Get Local, we’re dedicated to helping local businesses thrive. In light of recent extreme difficulties local businesses are facing, our priority is to protect local businesses. Many small businesses that are not online and e-commerce enabled are being disproportionately affected by Covid-19. The situation is dire for these small businesses. For many, the choices are to close or move online. Moving online is often viewed as expensive, time-consuming and virtually impossible. We want to put you in a position to get your businesses online, book appointments and transact digitally.
Starting today, we’re providing businesses with an expanding set of e-commerce tools for local business customers, to help them conduct business online, and stay connected to communities they serve.
