Meet Maggie – she’s 28, a mother of two and the proud owner of a small business. So, for years, she’s created beautiful, handcrafted jewelry from her kitchen table. That’s why she’s got a shop of her own. In fact, the only problem, though? Of course, small businesses depend heavily on local buyers to keep their doors open. In addition, competing with large department stores and shopping mall retailers with lower prices, customers are hard to come by. Fortunately, Maggie found this service. In short, it is a global platform for small businesses to affordably market their products and services to local buyers. Nowadays, Maggie posts products, special promotions, and contests on it. The result? Working together, the small businesses and dedicated citizens in Maggie’s town have created a positive ecosystem for local commerce and communal sustainability. Surely, all this from using this service.
