Business Member News

Don’t underestimate the power of the brand. Yesterday I was out visiting clients, and in the course of running errands on three separate occasions I ran into people that recognized the RelyLocal logo on my shirt. They recognized the brand and really loved what RelyLocal is doing for local businesses. It’s amazing how the ‘little sticker in the window’ can work to increase your store’s visibility. If your business isn’t displaying the RelyLocal Wausau logo yet, contact me today to find out how you can get onboard.
