Frequently asked questions
In such rapidly changing times, the digital age requires us to innovate as much as everyone else – in order to keep our platforms delivering massive value, for nothing at all.
However, the age #Covid19 has made way for many locals to dip their toes into entrepreneurship. With over 4500 biznet users, the HCS group is leaning more towards more ‘spammy’, than the valuable content that we so desperalty need to preserve & improve.
By separating our community sales & chats, from the buzzing backbone of our economy ( that’s you – our local businesses) , we believe we have the answer to “awareness” problems many small businesses face today.
By creating an extremely convenient, fun, easy and synergistic process for our local community to form lasting relationships – we will afford massive opportunity to our locals to all work together for widespread economy growth.
Listing on the Local First APP not only creates you a digital online storefront that gets you easily found on Google, locals are dying to find locals to support! But where does one know where to find skilled local businesses, who deliver high-quality work? The Local First Movement will get you discovered.
You do not need to have a biznet number to use Local Firsts’ services. However, you will need to apply for a biznet code to share your Local First store listing to HCS.
A Biznet number is your very own unique code that is issued to you when you have listed on the Biznet Directory.
This code identifies you as an advertiser on HCS and designates you one day per week to advertise your services on our HCS Community group.
Biznet numbers help us manage the group and prevent spam that is common on other groups.
We have designed the Biznet code with a # (Hashtag) in the front of it for good reason. The use of the # creates a “tag” for that code and it will be in BOLD ie: #LocalMo000018
#Local (that’s what we are celebrating)
followed by Day of the week : Mo (Monday)
and your number :000018
Codes with the zero’s removed will be approved.
Every # will get its own URL that will take a member straight through to your very own Facebook page displaying all previous adverts posted with that exact URL.
We have always been about Supporting Local.
