Local First Milwaukee
It's fun to see how the marketing committee from Local First Milwaukee, ended up using my photos for some PR. It all started when I posted images (smiling folks at the door) from a day that I was at 5 LFM-shops. Lisa Malmarowski, a marketing genius and all around wonderful, and creative gal friend, saw my images and asked if she could use them for the marketing campaign for recruitment of local businesses.
What the heck is Local First Milwaukee you ask? A whole lot of good! Click the link for more infor!
Join us today if you work in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington, Racine and Ozaukee county.
Buying from a local business has many positive impacts for our city and its communities. The more support we give to community based businesses the more we get back.
In order to make Milwaukee a more sustainable community, our goal is to build market share for locally-owned, independent businesses by increasing awareness about the personal and community benefits of choosing local.
Remember, for every $1 you spend at a locally owned business, more than 68¢, versus 43¢ spent at a national chain, remains in Milwaukee.
