Placemaker Crowdfunding Campaign Surpasses Goal

August 20, 2017 9:02 AM | TLC Monadnock (Administrator)

Monadnock Buy Local makes plans to launch Placemaker Local Rewards Program in late 2017

Nest supports PlacemakerThe Local Crowd (TLC) Monadnock's third online crowdfunding campaign reached its goal of raising $5,000 to support Monadnock Buy Local's Placemaker Local Rewards program. Fifty-nine supporters contributed $5,150 -- voting with their dollars to bring Placemaker to the Monadnock Region.

This crowdfunding campaign goes beyond raising start-up funds for our new program.  It demonstrates another use of TLC Monadnock, to gauge community support for launching a new service in our region. We hope other businesses will use TLC Monadnock as a market research tool, as well.

About Placemaker

Placemaker is an innovative online platform that tracks purchases made at participating locally owned businesses and offers gifts and discounts to users who spend their dollars locally. Instead of independent businesses working to build customer loyalty on their own, they can band together through Placemaker and inspire more people to spend their dollars at locally owned businesses. Placemaker will also provide real-time data that Monadnock Buy Local and other economic development organizations can use to measure their impacts and refine their efforts.

"We moved here three years ago from a busy metro area with the belief that a smaller town -- with more individual personality -- would be a better place to raise our family," shared Jocelyn Desmarais Goldblatt, an early crowdfunding campaign supporter. "Placemaker will encourage a healthy local economy and ensure that the qualities we love about Keene will remain and hopefully strengthen. I love the idea of supporting my neighbors and friends in this way, and I'm not going to lie... I like rewards!"
