The Vermont-based Localvore platform connects conscientious consumers to the local businesses that make economies thrive. This App has been successfully connecting Burlington businesses and farms with new customers since 2012 with more than 500 businesses included in the Passport. Only a few Upper Valley businesses are included on the platform, so learn about how Localvore could be an effective and easy tool to help Upper Valley businesses connect with customers this winter and beyond. It's free for businesses to use and a coordinated outreach effort to get this App launched in the Upper Valley is possible if there is enough interest from businesses. Details about how this works for businesses is below. Come with your questions!

Here's a summary of how Localvore Passport works for businesses and how they can participate for FREE. Attached is a "Merchant Sales Brochure". There are 3 core components of the platform that help consumers connect with businesses.
1. Our Directory is simple. It's your business listing, a photo, and information to help customers discover and engage with your business. If you don't have a profile set up, email email@example.com and we will curate one to your liking.
2. Creating a Local Offer: Once your Directory profile is set up, you can customize an offer that Localvores can use however often you want them to. And, you can always change the offer or take it down. This google form is a simple way to get started, and then I usually have a brief 15-minute call to make sure all the details are correct and that they understand the redemption process and other expectations.

3. News Feed: Once your Directory profile is set up all you have to do is include #localvore in your Instagram posts, and those will show up on Localvore too!
