The Watt's Local Advantage is that you can:
Watt's Local is a program designed to help businesses (particularly small, local businesses) reach their target markets more effectively by connecting them with new families during the first few days when they arrive in your community. We help bridge the gap between new families in the community and small businesses.
Q. Why Watt's Local?
A. Every day new families are moving into your community. Those first few weeks are the most critical time for you to reach out to this newly available market~ it is a time when they NEED the services you offer, and they are LOOKING for YOU.
The problem is that, being new to the area, they don't know you yet. They don't know your other happy customers yet either, to get a referral to you, so chances are they aren't going to find you until later. Maybe it's only a few weeks later, but by then chances are they won't need your services any more~ the house will be put together, the kids will be enrolled in extracurricular activities, they will have found a pediatrician, dentist, gym, etc. YOU need to reach out to them during those first few days that they arrive in the valley.
Q. Can any business be a part of Watt's Local?
A. No! Watt's Local is a 'By Invitation Only' program reserved for those businesses that have established a strong record of providing quality products and services along with effective customer service. If you have been invited by a Watt's Local team member, Congratulations! That says something about you!
If you have not yet been invited but believe that your company fits the criteria listed above, please contact us at WattsLocalCV@gmail.com. We would be happy to research your company for eligibility and extend an invitation if you qualify.
Q. How does Watt's Local work?
A. We understand it can be difficult for local businesses to gain a loyal customer base and proper exposure in a large community with larger competitive businesses. We also understand that it can be overwhelming for families who are unfamiliar with the area to find quality businesses that share their same values.
Watt’s Local helps these new families have a positive move-in experience by providing them with the knowledge they need in a new town to make their transition go smoothly. This, in turn, provides you with an opportunity to meet them at a time when they are in the market for your services and develop good relationships with them. This will lead to repeat business and solid referrals.
Q. How does the new family know that you are referring them to the top businesses in their new community versus just sending them to those businesses that are willing to pay for leads?
A. Our parent company, My Discovery Destination!, is about strengthening families and building character. We are looking for businesses and organizations that have those same goals and values. In order to ensure that we are working with only the top leaders in any industry where we make referrals we vet our business partners before ever extending an invitation. We have a variety of processes in place for finding the very best businesses, but the most powerful process is that we extend invitations to businesses that have been referred to us by multiple existing or past customers.
How do the families moving into your community know this? In many instances they will have already established a relationship with My Discovery Destination! in their previous community before they moved. Those families that don't have an established relationship with My Discovery Destination! soon will. In addition, we ensure that our families know the process used to select our business partners so that they can feel comfortable working with any business they meet through Watt's Local.
Q. Does that mean you have already checked out my business and established my eligibility?
A. Yes! What this means for you is that if you have been invited to participate in the program you have a group of happy customers out there. Congratulations!! You've worked hard to get to where you are and you've proven you have what it takes. Let us help you take your business to the next level with increased exposure to a market that is primed and looking for you.
Q. How does Watt's Local connect me to the new families in the community?
A. Every new move-in to your community will be provided with a Watt's Local Welcome package. As a Watt's Local Business Partner your business will be included in the Watt's Local app. This allows you to get your name in front of these brand new families moving into the area BEFORE they go out and establish a relationship with other companies. Basically, YOU get first shot at their new business!
