We shop local everyday. We were constantly seeing our favorite small businesses close. Since we started shopping local 10 years ago - 90% of our favorite stores have closed permanently.
The biggest obstacle we saw for local retailers was not being found in search engines. If customers are looking for you and cannot find you; they go to your competitor or a big box store.
What could we do to make a difference?
At AMG we lay the groundwork for marketing and increased sales. Our process is simple and effective with tools, plans, and training. This means your business can stay open for years to come.
