New website creates networking opportunities for local businesses in Southern Downs
1 April 2019
Businesses across the Southern Downs will soon find and win more work locally following the launch of Southern Downs Regional Council’s new Localised website.
Launching on 9 April, SDRC’s Localised site is designed to help the local business community grow by providing a digital space where local businesses can connect with each other and network new business opportunities.
Local businesses can sign up to Localised for free and create a profile where they can advertise their services or business opportunities they have on offer to other local businesses.
Councillor for Economic Development, Regional Promotion and Tourism Rod Kelly said Localised provides a platform for local businesses to raise their profile within the community.
“Our region is full of amazing businesses, both large and small, but too often people don’t know about them or businesses don’t know about each other,” Cr Kelly said.
“By registering for this free service, local businesses can help each other by spending more locally. This will help grow the region’s economy, create jobs and support the community.
“Local businesses now have several avenues of support to help them succeed with Council successfully launching our Invest Southern Downs website last year and our new Localised site.”
Registering for Localised is free and easy, and SDRC encourages all local businesses to register at Council’s Localised site starting Tuesday, 9 April.
Local businesses can also keep up with the latest business news and events, as well as tips for starting and growing your business, by visiting investsoutherndowns.com.au.
