About Talk of the Town Coupons™:
We love small businesses!
To every entrepreneur who’s going out on a limb to bring a dream to life, we’ve
got your back. To anyone with a dream of one day opening a small business of your
own, we say “Go for it!”
We believe in small businesses. We are a small business! We understand how rough
you have it. We live in a big city with no shortage of big box, generic, brick and
mortar stores. But it's the small businesses that give the neighborhoods within
the city that local feel. They’re the heart and soul of the community.
When a small business opens, it has to work hard to gain the attention of consumers.
And as is often the case, small businesses have equally small advertising budgets.
The owners know they need to advertise, but they’re not sure how or where to find
the extra money.
We exist so that every single small business can have the opportunity to get their
name out there. We offer businesses an easy and affordable way of promoting themselves.
Whether your advertising program is well underway, or you’re just getting started,
our Talk of the Town Coupons™ envelope & our online coupon program are effective
ways to round out your marketing strategy and become a known name in the community.
