‘I HEART NWA’ was conceptualized and launched in 2017 by a native of Rogers, AR. Born and raised here, she has watched this area grow, and it is not slowing down!
Trying to figure out the best way to use the concept to help people in NWA, her FINAL idea is the launching of the Local Business Directory on the I HEART NWA website.
Why just GOOGLE and utilize big “chains” when shopping Locally strengthens our economy, and greatly helps those who are brave enough to think outside the box: Entrepreneurs!
Our Directory is DEDICATED SOLELY to Local Businesses & Services in Northwest Arkansas, so residents and fellow entrepreneurs can easily connect with them!
In case you have not seen or heard about I HEART NWA, our website includes:
An NWA Event Calendar
News & Blog (same tab together)
Our Directory, of course
Resources which ANYONE in NWA might need for quick retrieval
We also are active on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, posting things for our social media fans/followers! (Just look for I HEART NWA on any of those!)
But . . . there’s more than that!
It isn’t ENOUGH to just create a Directory for entrepreneurs to congregate – we want to do something GREATER.
Every month, a member of our Directory is going to be selected to be FEATURED. This will include their listing being on our homepage of the Directory, and a “Get To Know a Local Business” Bio and pictures/video being done on the business, emailed out in our newsletter to subscribers, and put on our Blog.
We are beginning our initial marketing of I HEART NWA online to grow our audience, and as it grows, so will our advertising budget, of course.
So Local Business Owners & Entrepreneurs!
Visit the Directory and list your business with the Membership Plan of your choice (there is a FREE one!), Get Connected here in NWA, and Let’s Grow Together.
