Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
REELZ today announced the launch of the network’s Independence Happens Here™ website in support of independent businesses in America. As one of the last truly independent television networks remaining in today’s increasingly consolidated media landscape, REELZ is working to help keep free thought and innovation alive through highlighting the importance of independent businesses as a crucial resource to power the economy and embody the freedom that Americans so greatly cherish. REELZ’s Independence Happens Here™ website can be found at http://IndependenceHappensHere.com
To show its support for independent business, REELZ is giving free advertising to independent businesses across the nation. To apply, people can post a selfie of their favorite independently owned business with the hashtag #REELZIndependent to Instagram or Facebook and that company will be entered in a monthly drawing to win local advertising paid for by REELZ. Winning pictures and businesses will be featured on the website and REELZ will either produce a television commercial and air it in the winner’s local market or publish a local newspaper advertisement on behalf of the winning business.
“Operating an independent business in any field is as challenging as it is rewarding, and the television industry is no different. REELZ is proudly independent, which gives us the freedom to present stories and characters that sometimes big network groups cannot or will not touch,” said Stan E. Hubbard, REELZ CEO. “At our inception in 2006 we made a deep-seated commitment to our viewers and business partners. We treat all relationships as personal and sacred and that can only come from being an independent, family-owned business. We ask in return that you too think independently and support independent television.”
Join the conversation through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to recognize and embrace independently owned businesses with an easy-to-use zip code lookup so visitors can find independent businesses all over the country on an interactive map. Additionally, visitors can add their favorite independent businesses to the map by simply entering the address and a brief description of the company. The site also highlights independent business news happening across America including an Independent Business of the Month feature and links to articles on how to run a successful independent business.
