About EmbraceLocal.com

EmbraceLocal.com is a digital advertising business directory resource site / advertising platform, developed by Drew Sohn and Digital Traffic Solutions.

As a local business owner, it’s been challenging, if not frustrating, to get the visibility needed to create awareness for my business.

ALL businesses need 2 things.

  1. Visibility

  2. Customers

Without them, well you might as well just adjust your calendar, because revenue and profitability won’t be coming around as fast as you’d have hoped.

It is from my experience by not having these two vital pieces to business, that helped me develop EmbraceLocal.com for businesses.

My Story

My first step into being an entrepreneur was trying to be a gourmet coffee and tea  online distributor.  Long story short, I had the inventory, back office and packaging all set up.   I also got an ecommerce site up and running.  I had everything in place!  Except one thing…  Traffic.

I had no visibility.   Without visibility I had no way of getting customers.

How could I even get them to warm up to me if they didn’t even know I existed?

Needless to say, I closed that business.  A lot of lessons learned there.  lol.  But I made it my mission to never let that happen to me again, and if possible, help businesses with the same dilemma as well.

Embracing Local Businesses Is Important

Embracing local businesses is not in vain.

Embracing local business is a socio-economic responsibility that all community members need to be aware of.

It is THAT important.  Why?

Because EMBRACING local business makes a HUGE impact in the community it resides.

Most business owners are local.  Whether they are or not, local revenue generated impacts a family’s business, a family and a community as a whole.

    • It serves a purpose.  
    • It keeps a family going.  
    • It’s tuition for a child.  
    • It’s a teacher’s salary to teach a child.  
    • It’s the fee for a family to have their child play a sport.
    • It keeps money in the community instead of paying for another CEO’s private jet!

What We Are About?

LOCAL BUSINESS MATTERS!

The term it’s business, nothing personal… does not apply here!

    • Local business is NOT just business, It is…PERSONAL!
    • Local businesses need to NOT JUST BE SUPPORTED, but “EMBRACED” so as to make a difference in the lives of people, families and communities.

How Will We Accomplish This?

To create the awareness necessary to get businesses seen, EmbraceLocal.com will use the 2 platforms that has the most eyeballs pointing at it:

Facebook and Smartphones

Almost 2 billion Facebook users and 75% of users are logged in, at least 15 times a day.

EmbraceLocal.com will create ad campaigns targeting your desired areas so that those areas can find your business on our business directory site and learn more about you.

We can do this for the long term and affordably as businesses are pooled together to keep the ad campaigns going.

Now, as we are using Facebook ads, EmbraceLocal.com chooses to follow the same ad guidelines as the Facebook Ads platform.   Thus, ANY businesses that Facebook does not allow ads to, EmbraceLocal.com will also follow suit and deny onto our listing sites.  NO EXCEPTIONS.

THE VISION

To help local businesses get seen, so they can get customers and impact their local communities!

If you see what I see, please seize the opportunity to share this site to other businesses, your neighbor, your friends.

Change for businesses and communities can happen, it takes awareness and faith.

Gratefully yours,
