HOW TO MAKE A LOCAL DIFFERENCE

“If we stick together, we’re all going to go to the top together.”

Lynne McDaniel, Owner, An Orange Moon, Chicago, IL & Small Business Community Activist

SPREADING SOLUTIONS

VIDEO: Small Business Revolution

It’s not enough to have a bright idea. The real battle is implementing and spreading the word about effective LOCALISM. That's why Market Style Media wants to give you access to innovative and effective strategies, toolkits, and templates. We want everyone to learn from our collective challenges and share in our collective success.

BUILD THE ECOSYSTEM

Our small towns cannot thrive and prosper without our small business owners. ​A study by the Chamber of Commerce showed that the majority of small businesses spend an average of $400 per month on marketing, however, more than 32% spend less than $100 per month and only 6% spend more than $1,000 per month. Market Style Media strives to meet the needs of small business owners at every marketing budget level.

Market ​Style Media is here to help you with "chicken and egg" marketing. This means that in order to sustain a business you need marketing, but in order to spend money on marketing, you need business to support a budget. We are a small business and we understand the struggle of small business owners.

That is why we've changed our business model to fit the small business owner.
