What is North Country Local?
North Country Local is a website and Facebook-based community, with the mission of connecting locally-owned businesses and consumers in the North Country of New Hampshire and Vermont. Serving the area about 25 miles or so around Littleton, NH and St. Johnsbury, VT, north of the Notches, you'll find a daily $50 giveaway on our Facebook page, always from a different locally-owned North Country business. North Country Local also supports local nonprofits, charities, fundraising events, and the arts with daily postings to the North Country Local Facebook page, as well as on the North Country Local Calendar featured on this website.
How does our Facebook page work?
Every morning at 8:30 AM, a business will be featured alongside a giveaway of a $50 gift certificate for a goods or service.
The daily post will feature a collage of images of your business and products, while including a description of what you offer as a business.
Each post will require each Facebook fan to answer a question AND like your Facebook page to be entered for the daily drawing, while encouraging them to share with their friends for double the chance of winning.
Each post will be promoted on Facebook for extended reach - combined with that promotion and the encouragement to share, each post will reach a local audience of 5 - 10,000 people.
As the minimum amount of participation is a 3 month buy-in, your featured day of the month will vary - you could give away a prize on the 27th of this month, while giving away your next on the 10th of the next.
North Country Local will also offer a place for the North Country to find out about local events, as charities, nonprofits, and arts-related organizations are encouraged to send information along for posting.
- The daily winner will be notified on the post they entered in on by messaging them and asking them to send North Country Local their mailing address. Once North Country Local has their mailing address, prizes for that week will be sent out on Friday via certified mail.
