Free Digital Marketing Help for Chamber Members

SLN_logo_no_backgroundDigital marketing can be challenging for any size business. Marketing costs money. Email marketing costs money. Search engine optimization and social media management cost money. How do you compete?


Save Local Now (SLN) is the Mobile Area Chamber’s solution to all these challenges and is free to all members. SLN’s mission, in conjunction with the Chamber, is to support local business by better connecting them to the people in their community.

SLN digital tools include:

  • Post publishing.
    This platform lets you publish promotions for your business, such as: “BOGO for First Time Customers!” or “We’re open late on Wednesdays” or “Check out our new product now sold in-store!”
  • Social media sharing.
    The SLN platform allows you to share business promotions to your own social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
  • Email marketing.
    Share your business promotions through SLN’s free email marketing. Keep in mind this is your email marketing; SLN does not have access to your email list and reminds you that while social media is to reach more customers, email marketing is to generate more revenue.
  • Search engine optimization.
    SLN provides free search engine optimization to each member’s profile. When you sign into your SLN platform (SLN trainers are available to help you with a login and password to claim your page), make sure you have accurate and up-to-date information, a detailed business description and as many keywords as possible. When consumers are searching for the products and services you provide, SLN will help place your business higher and higher on search engines like Google.
