What is Shop Iowa Deals?
The ShopIowaDealsCard™ was created to do many things that we feel are important for our local community. In order to know who we are, what we believe and why we started The ShopIowaDealsCard. I have outlined below just a few of the foundational concepts that we believe:
1. We want to raise “LOCAL awareness” and make the “BuyLocal-concept” become the “1st-choice community conscience”. We know that national chains serve a purpose but we want Iowa to make them the second choice rather than the first!
2. We believe that local businesses can provide goods and services at competitive prices. We want to prove
this point by continually offering value, opportunity and convenience to our cardholders at ShopIowaDeals.com website.
3. We believe that the NEW social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc) are a more important and cost effective method of delivering a business’s message than the old model (e.g. television and traditional advertising). Follow us on Facebook & Twitter and challenge us to raise the bar to serve all Iowa communities in better ways.
4. We believe the best method of advertising is word of mouth and that when the community realizes and understands the benefits of supporting local businesses, the ‘local’ business economy will expand and not contract.
