Search Local First in 3 Mini-Press Releases

For Immediate Release...



#1 Local Entrepreneur Discovers How YOUR Online Shopping Can Add Value to Our Economy

Be The Change For No Additional Cost And No Extra Clicks


Born and raised in Marquette County Michigan, Garrett Paquette is a Yooper at the heart of the Upper Peninsula. "Personally I've always envisioned this area to be like a 'hub' of activity, particularly, value adding community leaders, employees, tradespeople and merchants who connect our 'spokes' to the rest of the world by buying and bringing goods and services not previously readily available here..."


"...as an Entrepreneur, I love adding value."

During the past decade, Garrett has received his Bachelors in Entrepreneurship from the College of Business at NMU, pursued multiple business ideas, and continued to refine his practices and knowledge to continue building value infrastructure within Marquette County.


Today, G wants to focus on his online venture SearchMarquette.NET


A ready-to-use local crowd-sourced content website with the purpose to showcase Marquette County media, businesses, recreations, and informations all in one place for your internet convenience. Combining relevant content for locals, visitors, and those seeking to travel Marquette, the site itself becomes a hub for pass-through traffic... (it's at this point ignorant smart asses make the comments like 'why not just use "Facebook/Groups/Pages"' and they are part of the problem in today's world of consumer ignorance...)


More value can still be found locally. You as the consumer must be the one to remember to search local first, wherever that may be! Capturing value from website traffic is the primary driving element behind SearchMarquette sustainability and overall impact on the local economy.


 


 

#2 Locally Owned Website Collects Community-Driven Commissions

How To Enhance Local Economies by Shopping Online


Trusted internet sources put the average amount people spend on Amazon per year within the range of $600-1400. SearchMarquette, as an Amazon Associate, could earn about 2% commission per qualified purchase. Simply put, using these numbers to forecast, if 20,000 people in Marquette County simply clicked-through the special links provided before they shop the collective result would be in the range of $240K-560K in commission profit before taxes.


Furthermore, should the community pull together and collaborate with Garrett's endeavor, we could duplicate the process not only for every other U.P. county, but this joint-venture funneling initiative can be duplicated across the states by other local entrepreneurs with similar ambitions. Similar to a franchise but without all the legalese. Properly channeled, the commissions and potential ad revenues from the continued operation of this SearchMarquette Method could passively bring Marquette County an additional +$1M per year in taxable income.


Revenue like this in Marquette County would make world's of differences to all kinds of current economic challenges and personal difficulties.


For the sake of dreaming big, let's say the population of Michigan is aware of SearchMarquette.Net and throughout THIS year every one of the 8 milllion people with internet access click-through the site and purchase $600 in things from Amazon...


At 2% commission on $600 spent this year individually by 8 million people (2.4% of US Population) the result is $96,000,000 in commissions kept locally ;)
