Running a business is no cakewalk and can be completely overwhelming. 

Do you ever wish there was someone to help with even just one of these tasks? If your answer is, “heck yes!!”, you’re exactly where you need to be.

We take several of these tasks off your plate so you have more time to do what you love. 

Or…have that nap you’ve been meaning to take for the past 3 years.

“But like, how exactly do you help me?” 

Thought you’d never ask. 

We take your business and continually blast it out to our amazing community of local shop supporters (over 30K on Instagram alone) through a bunch of different marketing channels.

“So what does ‘blast it out’ mean?” 


It means we use our curated local shop directory, social media, influencer & email marketing, paid ad strategies, blog & gift guide features to bring you…

Major exposure.

Increased credibility.

Improved SEO. 

Business growth.

And, oh ya, less overwhelm. 

Because let’s be honest, if you’re not growing and selling, this whole entrepreneur thang ain’t much fun.  

Consider us your business BFF. 

We’ve totally got you.
