Register Your Business

Buy LocalAs an independent business owner, you likely don’t have the time or budget to compete with national chains’ marketing campaigns. That doesn’t mean you have to come in second with consumers, though. An Independent We Stand membership is the easiest way to get noticed by the consumers who matter most – without dishing out the massive marketing dollars to join a local business directory. 

Why Independent We Stand?

Consumers want to buy local. They’re looking for small businesses, but Independent We Stand will make sure they find yours. To tap into the consumer desire to buy local, Independent We Stand puts your business right where it should be:

  • Online – A whopping 97 percent of Internet users look for local goods and services online. Make sure those customers find your business by promoting it online.
  • On The Go – According to comScore, more than 57 percent of U.S. consumers own a smartphone, and three out of four have contacted a business they found on their phone. So make sure your business can be easily found by mobile phone users.

Which Membership is Right for You?

Our free Basic Membership places you in front of the growing number of consumers who are eager to support local businesses. You’ll get to list your business on our ‘buy local’ search engine and on our iPhone and Android mobile apps, so consumers can find you when they’re at home, at work and on the go. You’ll also have access to our ever-growing online database of marketing materials, including high-resolution fliers and posters. It won’t cost you anything – other than the time it takes you to sign up.

For less than $10 a month*, you can reach those eager consumers on a whole new level. Premium Members receive customizable marketing materials, enhanced listings on the ‘buy local’ search engine and mobile apps and the opportunity to network with other small business owners. With a Premium Membership, your business will show up before Basic Members in relevant search results, and you’ll get to personalize your listing with photos, social media links, product photos and descriptions, Yelp reviews and more. You’ll also join our extensive Merchant Member Forum, where you can network with other small business owners who are using Independent We Stand to attract more customers. It’s affordable, it’s easy, and it’s proven to get your small business noticed. So register your business today.
