Using CitySpokes, businesses can keep residents up-to-date on how they are proceeding through the Covid-19 phases. Businesses can post their hours, stock conditions, how their processes have been modified to provide the safest conditions possible, and a lot more.
The Business Directories in CitySpokes provide icons for Google Maps, Covid-19 accommodations, hours of work, and more importantly for you, your icon next to your member businesses or organizations. When residents look through the directory to help them select the best business to work with, they will usually select those with Chamber, BBB or Downtown Association members as they know those businesses tend to be more legitimate, stable, and contributing members of the community. Non-member businesses also recognize that and how they are at a disadvantage, and may be more inclined to join your Chamber, BBB or Downtown Association.
But for even more fun, students can try to win prizes offered by local businesses (i.e. an ice cream cone, a round of miniature golf, a slice of pizza, etc.). To win those prizes a student must answer 100 random 12 times problems in less than 5 minutes. There are other programs like State Capitals for Prizes, History for Prizes, and more will be added all the time.
But the best opportunity for Boards of Education is to use our templates to add your own questions and answers to our StudySpokes prize apps. By doing so, you can match your local curriculum to the challenge of earning prizes and increasing student knowledge through self-motivation, all for free.
Finally, to help maintain the integrity of the Partner selection, you should discuss this opportunity with your city or county officials, or with you local Chamber of Commerce (who will discuss with the city or county officials on your behalf). Once you get that endorsement, please complete the Partner Application process so we can get you approved and set up.
