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 List Your Business?

Consumers want to buy local. They’re looking for small businesses and Independent We Stand can help them find yours. To tap into the consumer's ever growing 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 Basic Membership will list your business on our ‘locals only’ 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. In addition, a basic membership will give you access to downloadable marketing materials.

Our Premium Membership is just $49 per year and will give you all the benefits of Basic Membership plus access to exclusive customizable 'buy local' marketing materials and tools; an enhanced listing that features more robust content including social media links, product descriptions, coupons/special offers, Yelp reviews and more; and your listing will receive search priority over basic listings meaning it will appear at the top of relevant search results. In addition, your premium membership fee will help us in our mission to educate consumers about the importance and strong economic benefits of supporting locally owned businesses like yours. See the table below for full details of both membership levels.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our Customer Service Help Line at toll free (888) 787-8497.
