Are You Helping Your Local Economy? Try the 3/50 Project.

The 3/50 Project is a grass-roots campaign created by a woman named Cinda Baxter in Minneapolis. The goal is to encourage you, our consumers, to pick three of your favorite local, independent businesses and commit to spending $50 per month at each store. 

For every $100 spent in locally owned, independent stores, $68 returns to your community through taxes, payroll, etc. If you spend that much in a national chain, only $43 stays local. If spent online, nothing stays local.

If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned inidependent businesses, more than $25 million in revenue would be generated in a city the size of Overland Park. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.

ToBizNet can help transform your business into an efficient and effective marketing machine.

We can show you how to get more business from the customers you already have and give you access to a multitude of like-minded noncompeting businesses and their customers in your backyard.

Giving you previously unheard of marketing power!
