If you’re reeling from the double whammy of winter ice storms and a fire-related I-84 closure, you might benefit from an offer by Gorge Owned that could boost your business visibility with consumers.
Gorge Owned and Chinook Book — via a subscription-based phone app — both specifically support locally-owned, community-oriented, and sustainably-conscious businesses.
If your business fits that criteria, the marketing partners will waive the activation fee for mobile advertising in the coming year for Gorge merchants.
Deadline to apply for the waiver is Nov. 1.
Chinook Book has operated in the Pacific Northwest for more than 18 years. More than 50,000 people in the Portland market use the Chinook Book app on a regular basis to find local, sustainable businesses.
Last year, during Chinook Book’s pilot year in the Gorge, about 60 businesses throughout the region placed a coupon, and more than 1,000 people in the Gorge downloaded the app onto their smartphone.
“We hope our partnership with Chinook Book will continue to encourage traffic from the Portland Metro area to the Gorge, as well as incentivize locals to support locals,” said Gorge Owned founder and Hood River City Council Member Becky Brun.
While supplies last, the two organizations are also offering free annual app subscriptions to consumers, ordinarily $15, to continue growing the user base of people redeeming Chinook Book coupons in the Gorge.
