Thank you for considering Perk Network. We are a locally owned network entirely focused on bringing local communities together. We are confident that the Perk Network Program benefits all sectors of the community; locally owned business, nonprofits, and their supporters. We believe that working together, we can make a difference right here in our backyard. Please take a moment to review the brief summary below and consider Perk Network’s “Buy Local” network, helping keep hard earned local dollars right here in our community where they belong.
No Upfront Cost of Advertising and Local Promotion | Perk Network is a growing community of locally owned businesses and Nonprofit Organizations. Perk Network brands a universal gift card for each Nonprofit and in turn they offer it to their supporters. Each Nonprofit’s supporters carry their card with pride confident that they are supporting a specific cause, vision, or establishment in which they solidly believe. The “Buy Local” card is utilized at any local business on the Perk Network through a point of sale terminal provided at no cost to the business. Supporters upload money to their “Buy Local” card through our user-friendly website, just like a loadable gift card and then use it to purchase goods and services from your business. You receive free advertising as part of the Perk Network when supporters log on to our website and search for business in their communities or when they notice the “Perk Network” logo on the door of your establishment. The “Buy Local” program is only offered to locally owned and operated business giving you the opportunity to invest in your community and giving supporters pride when shopping with you.
Increase Sales and Eliminate Hidden Fees | Not only does Perk Network have the ability to reach new customers that your normal advertising would not reach, but local pride in the Network sells itself. The program operates better than any coupon or discount program in that shoppers have a considerable incentive to continue visiting your business. Supporters will seek you out and share their experiences with other supporters in their Nonprofit organization. Perk Network runs on its own proprietary system and has no credit/debit card processing fees or service charges to you. With Bank processing fees averaging upward of 5% those same fees can now work in your local community. Simply determine the rebate percentage you wish to offer to local Nonprofit organizations whose supporters are shopping at your business and we do the rest.
Community Support without Financial Risk | As a part of the Perk Network, you will have a face in the community that stands out over the national chain stores. Working together for the community we can create an atmosphere in which local citizens are excited to spend their hard earned dollars at local establishments owned by people that they know by name; giving everyone a community we can believe in. In addition, the majority of the rebate that you offer will be reinvested into your local community through the Nonprofit organizations you are supporting.
