The Dakotafire Go Local Directory is a guide to retail, dining, and lodging destinations that are locally owned and often “off the beaten path.”
From where? The booklet features locally owned businesses in the Dakotas.
To where? The directory will be distributed at information centers in North and South Dakota, plus at advertisers’ places of business. At least 10,000 copies will be printed. The directory will also be available online at dakotafire.net/directory, and it will be promoted on Facebook via a variety of pages. Advertisers can opt in to other online and social media promotions.
When? The directory will be available May 1, 2017.
Why? We want to celebrate and connect small businesses in the Dakotas, and help people find their way through your doors!
Anything else? Yes! This booklet is also an example in “coopetition”: The idea that entrepreneurs can do better working together instead of going it alone. We encourage participants to promote one another’s businesses, turning a customer for one place into a customer for many. Ask your sales representative for more information.
NEW in 2017: In addition to the regular directory section, where businesses are listed by town, the 2017 directory will also have a CATEGORY section. We’ll help shoppers find the kind of local business they are after, whether it’s for coffee, antiques, fabric—whatever the Dakotas offer! Now this handy guide will be even handier, helping your customers seek out your business!
