Our pop-up project has seen several successful pop-up shops since its inception in the summer of 2013. Ranging in time from one week to one month, the pop-up program offers a free, temporary retail space in downtown to entrepreneurs and online retailers looking to experiment with brick-and-mortor storefronts. If you are a business owner and are interested in setting up your own shop, please fill out the application here. Our Standards Package is also available for your review and details the quality and type of shop we are looking for. An additional resource for setting up a pop-up shop can be found at resources.storenvy.com. Finally, you can easily download “The Ultimate Guide to Opening a Pop-Up Shop”. If you have any questions or are a property owner with a space available for a shop, please contact Zoya at 505.243.2230 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
We also have a Google mapping initiative that outlines the ways in which you can map your business. Google Places for Business gives you access to free tools that help your business get online, be found on Google Search and Maps and get closer to your customers. It’s the easiest way to manage your business across Google and it’s free. Because 97% of consumers search for local businesses online, make sure you list your business right away! Be there when they’re looking for you with a business listing – the easiest way to show up on Google Search and Maps. You can also list your hours, upload photos, and lots more- and it’s way easier than maintaing a website! Get started online, right here. (You should search for your business first- if you have any online presence or website, you may already show up.) Or, download our step-by-step guide right here. You can also get one-on-one help with one of our Ambassadors- just call 505.243.2230 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
Social media initiatives are another way to market your business easily, and freely. Facebook has over 1 billion active users globally, per month; over 750 million active mobile users; and the fastest growing demographic is the 55-64 age bracket.
