Apps for Local Businesses and Community Residents

HomeTown Apps give Community Residents easy, fast access to local information and business services.

Cost Effective Co-Op Marketing

 A HomeTown App is one of the most cost effective ways going to market your business or service.

I've been in the Direct Marketing business many years now, and can say with 100% certainty, there isn't a better method out there to reach new movers to town...let alone to communicate to people just visiting that are looking for services or things to do.

Once someone downloads the HomeTown App, they will be carrying your business or service information around with them all the time. You'll be there when they need or want you!

You can bring them in with "App" only special offers and/or create an "E" Punch Card program to increase store traffic and loyalty. No other form of advertising has that ability all wrapped into one neat package...

Take a look at the comparisons shown below.

From $500-$25,000 per year, per publisher depending on type of ad.
