Announcing the Partnership Between the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas and the FS Local Business Directory and Online Marketing Program

FS Local is proud to announce its partnership with the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) as part of its mission to help small business succeed and encourage consumers to shop local.

With a strong focus on community, FS Local and TABIA aim to provide Toronto’s Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) and their business members’ effective solutions to enhance their marketing efforts online.

John Kiru, Executive Director of TABIA, said: “on the heels of a very successful Shop the Neighborhood Campaign with the YPG on November 30th, this is a natural progression to providing member businesses with an effective online presence, strengthening not only their bricks and mortar business but encouraging them to effectively become national if not international.”

FS Local is an exciting innovation in online small business marketing that is gaining traction due to their simplicity and low-cost service. Participating BIA businesses will have the ability to build, customize and update their business listing on the FS Local directory. In addition, they will be given access to complimentary social marketing tools and publicity support.

Michael Yack, Founder of FS Local, said: “We are very privileged and excited to partner with TABIA working hand in hand to make the online transition easy and successful for the small businesses of Toronto’s BIAs.”

This latest partnership reinforces FS Local’s commitment to supporting the businesses and business owners that serve our local communities.
