Calling all Citrus Heights businesses — from home-based hummus makers, to yoga experts, to restaurants, to auto shops! The City is encouraging the community to #LoveLocal and #LearnLocal. We are collecting how-to videos and tutorials from our local businesses, to get the word out about your business and help build your rapport with our network.
We know that supporting Citrus Heights businesses is more important than ever, so while we make it easier for residents to shop local, we also want to promote local expertise with this extension of the Love Local campaign.
Videos should be short, and explain something within your industry that our community would be interested in learning. They can be filmed on a smartphone, and should be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or a similar platform, for easy sharing! If you need help with your tutorials, or would like to talk to an expert about making a marketing campaign for your business, our Small Business Development Center (SBDC) partners are here to help! Please connect with Gina Lujan with the SBDC at Gina@HackerLab.org.
