“Notice to ST. BERNARD PARISH Businesses”
We are excited to announce an all-new COMPREHENSIVE WEBSITE EXCLUSIVELY ABOUT ST. BERNARD PARISH FEATURING OUR LOCAL ST. BERNARD PARISH BUSINESSES VIA A unique “digital TOUR” on OUR WEBSITE: WWW.SHOPLOCALUSA.ONLINE
What is this project all about?
Our mission is to provide world-wide internet exposure via a unique artistic expression (full-color caricature community rendering) featuring our local businesses along with roads, schools, churches, parks and historic sites specifically designed to promote the unique spirit and history of our area.
In addition to Internet exposure, a minimum of 2,000 full color renderings of this project will be distributed throughout the community providing continuous impressions while displayed in many places.
Why is this project so important?
We need to re-focus attention on our local businesses who support the infrastructure of our towns and cities through jobs, taxes and overall economic activity in our communities as they compete with on-line companies.
How will this help our local businesses get more customers?
The best way to get more customers is to show them a map to your front door. Through the years, we have produced over 30 caricature maps featuring local businesses with much success and now, information about your business can be available on our website giving you even more exposure.
How does my business get website exposure?
That’s what makes this project unique. Specific details and information with your own customized microsite or webpage showcasing your business is easily accessible with a simple click of the mouse with up to 10 links to reach your business. You can check out what a microsite looks like right now by taking a “Digital Tour.”
What does it cost to participate?
The cost for this project varies based on the “Digital Tour.” If you are a St. Bernard Chamber of Commerce member, your business is automatically included at no cost to you, just because you are a member of the chamber and because of the support of our Sponsors. This includes your business building drawn and labeled on the printed and digital versions, your business location linked to a single URL of your choice on our website and one year at no cost on our website. After the first year, you can renew annually to stay on the website for just $12.00 a month. If you are not a chamber member, your cost would be $150 to be included on the printed and digital versions with a single URL link of your choice. For a customized web page or site with a digital rendering of your business building (microsite) including up to 10 links or ways customers can reach you, the cost is $250 or just $150 if you are a member of the chamber. A microsite page includes links to FaceBook/YouTube/Linked-In/Twitter/Yelp/InstaGram/Google Maps, your website, your phone number, email address and a narrative about your business such as hours of operation. Check out what a microsite looks like by taking the “Digital Tour.”
Who are the people behind this project?
A.G. Crowe, a successful businessman for many decades while serving as a school board member and state legislator, started one of his first businesses in Slidell (St. Tammany Office Products) by sponsoring a caricature poster map with his friend and artist, Ron Barthet. The project was so successful that dozens of new projects have since been produced including one for St. Bernard Parish back in 1990 sponsored by People’s Bank.
