Live Local East Dallas has Joined Forces with the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce!
ABOUT LIVE LOCAL The Live Local East Dallas campaign was started in May 2009 when a group of local business and community members gathered together to strategize how we could educate and emphasize the benefits of trying to conduct business, shop, and/or eat locally. The campaign’s focus was primarily to encourage all of East Dallas to think before conducting any sort of business outside of the East Dallas area. We hoped to remind businesses and individuals alike that they have it within their power to make decisions that will keep neighbors employed, locally owned businesses open, community non-profits serving, and many of our annual local events happening.
Live Local East Dallas’s mission statement was to encourage the community to think local first while recognizing the economic, social and community benefits of doing business locally.
LIVE LOCAL EAST DALLAS FOCUSED ON:
Reminding businesses and individuals in our community that there are enormous benefits to thinking local first when making decisions.
Marketing the idea and phrase throughout the community in order to promote local business owners and local efforts.
Live Local East Dallas facilitated regular educational events, maintained an online business directory of local businesses, and worked to display the Live Local East Dallas logo everywhere as a constant reminder.
Our efforts were first and foremost to think local first whenever possible and help educate the community by displaying a yard sign or a decal on your storefront window. We gave our business members the opportunity to expand their marketing efforts with the Live Local logo and receive additional local recognition through our marketing materials.
