Free Websites for Local Business
What do we mean by free websites for local businesses? Our team at ClickDuo has been working around the clock to help provide local business owners with a website presence with online ordering capabilities. And we are now proud to announce our Fan of Local initiative!
Fan of Local is a free directory service for small and local businesses created by ClickDuo. During the COVID-19 pandemic, ClickDuo is excited to be creating free starter DIY websites or complete basic websites ($2,500, the cost can be mitigated by the $2,500 Ontario Digital Transformation Grant until Dec. 30th, 2020 – we can assist you with the process), all sites come complete with online ordering functionality thanks to our partnership with Shopify.
For restaurants and other food services, you can save up to 32% in delivery surcharges from places like SkipTheDishes by using your new free website. One example is managing delivery or pickup with your own staff. This way, you can also keep your own staff employed.
For other types of businesses, would you benefit from being able to accept and process orders online? We likely have the solution for you as well.
In addition to your online store, you will receive a free directory listing on our new Fan of Local website that is specifically geared towards small, local businesses, which will help more potential customers find your business.
Do you already have an order-capable website? Excellent; list with us for free on our Fan of Local Directory for greater exposure.
Helping businesses everywhere that we can
ClickDuo has also partnered with the City of Toronto and the Digital Mainstreet Program. This way we can assist with getting even more local businesses online.
What if you don’t have a business, but still want to help support local businesses and strengthen our economy? We are at the very beginning of building an audience for community businesses, so, while the directory is sparse now, with your help, we can fill it and grow for the future, adding another way to support our local business owners.
