PORTLAND, Maine — May 20, 2020 — GCMD, a web design, branding and marketing agency, announced today that it will offer Portland area locally-owned restaurants marketing consultation services at no cost through June 30, 2020. Consultations will be limited to 30 minutes per restaurant and up to eight consults will be scheduled per week.
In addition, GCMD built a website, www.PortlandLocalEats.com, to feature local restaurants and encourage customers to order from area eateries, coffee shops, and bakeries. Each day, new businesses will be featured on the homepage and all participating restaurants will be listed on the website with searches for different cuisines. Each listing will include the restaurant’s logo, photo of a popular dish, location, phone number, website link, description, and related information.
Finally, each restaurant listed on the websites will also be featured on the Portland Local Eats Facebook page. Multiple social media tactics will be used to engage with the community and potential customers to build awareness and spur activity to restaurants.
“Many businesses have been hit-hard from Covid-19 restriction, including some of my favorite restaurants”, states GCMD Founder, Alexandra Heseltine. “I wanted to create a program that helps restaurant owners kickstart their business and encourages customers to support their favorite eatery through takeout, delivery and curbside orders. This is our way of giving back to the Portland community.”
Restaurant owners who want to schedule a free 30-minute marketing consult can go to www.PortlandLocalEats.com/About. They can also apply for inclusion in the website and Facebook page promotions.
