ANDERSONVILLE — Andersonville residents have been supporting local small businesses with their dollars. Now, the local business community is asking neighbors to take their support digital.
The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce has created digital survey templates that allow residents to share their favorite and most-frequented local businesses. The surveys are a take on a popular social media post, where people fill out questionnaires or surveys on their favorite items and then ask their friends or followers to do the same.
Andersonville’s chamber is calling the new initiative the #AlwaysAndersonvile Digital Passport. It’s a take on the neighborhood’s shop local passport program, which rewards neighbors for frequenting local businesses during the holiday shopping season.
The campaign allows residents to give their favorite a businesses a shoutout without having to leave their homes.
The chamber has created three different survey templates, which can be filled out and shared on Instagram or Facebook’s “stories” feature. The templates can be downloaded here.
Andersonville businesses have also created a kid’s coloring page template for families to do while practicing social distancing. The template can be found be clicking here.
