Independent We Stand – Get a Free Listing
Last week we reported on a study that “found that the number of Wal-Mart stores was a better predictor of hate group participation than the unemployment rate, high crime rates and low education.” But there are a lot of great reasons to shop locally. For example if every family in the country spent an extra $10 a month with a locally-owned, independent business like your pharmacy, over $9.3 billion would be directly returned to local economies. That means better schools, better roads, more support for police, fire and rescue departments and stronger local economies.
Of course you need to market your business and let them know you’re there to provide them with products and services. One way to get some exposure is by signing up on the Independent We Stand Web site as a member. They offer several different membership options from Basic to Co-Op partner.
This is a great message to not only give out to patients and customers, but also your prescribers. Encourage them to choose your pharmacy because it takes care of the “health of the community.” Independent We Stand also has a great section of free marketing materials.
