As most of you know, SSM is a once a month Market in Leland. We are very grateful for the following we have acquired and we are very proud of the growth we see each month, both in foot traffic and on our website and social media pages, which we work diligently on every day!
SSM, as planned, is becoming a destination for locals, transplants and tourists alike, and each month I get the same questions …”Can you recommend similar type places to us?” or “Where should we head next?” I very happily point them in your direction, which gave me an idea. While they are planning their Seaglass day trip wouldn’t it be so convenient for them to plan out their whole day? OR what if they head to our website only to find out it isn’t SEAGLASS WEEKEND? Wouldn’t it be perfect if they could find YOUR shops addresses and business hours? Wouldn’t it be lovely if they could find your Shopify or Etsy pages, knowing you are recommended by a business they trust?
We are very proud to be part of the #shopsmall #shoplocal revolution and we also believe we need to work together, and market together, to keep it going. I have created a page (click to see 2 samples) on our website that I will share and market as a #shoplocal Directory with the intention of showing consumers we are people, not corporations, who support each other and believe we are all in this together. Good Vibes, positive words, encouragement and cross marketing of local businesses (whether it be brick and mortar or online shops) can only lead to good things! Most of the artists and artisans we come across are women, and although this is not a prerequisite, it would be nice to lift each other up!
The fee for joining our page is $20.00 per month (1 month free, if you pay 1 year in full.) This would include your logo on our page with a link to your Website, Blog, FB Page, or Online Shop, weekly marketing on our Social Media Pages, as well as an opportunity to be a “guest blogger” on our blog. We hope to eventually collaborate on social media pages as well to help each other gain and maintain consumers who are interested in the small shop items we all carry.
New Hanover and Brunswick Counties are FULL of so many talented people, and that is who we are reaching out to! If you are interested in joining us with this innovative way of marketing for the #shopsmall community in Leland and Wilmington (and surrounding areas) please contact us at SeaglassSalvageMarket@gmail.com to schedule an appointment for us to come visit you to set up your link!
