It's free! The only investment you have to make is the little time it takes to create an exclusive perk.
It's good for business. And it's just plain good. We believe business isn’t just about making money, it’s about making a difference. We created Supportist to foster tighter connection within the community while helping local businesses succeed.
There are many reasons your business should consider partnering with Supportist.
1. Build your business
Leverage a free, flexible marketing platform that you can adjust to feed your business goals, whether it's rewarding your best customers, growing your business, adjust perks to fit seasonal goals, special events/programs and more.
2. Take full control
You set the perks with our easy-to-use business dashboard. Create the perfect offer(s) to get customers streaming through your door.
3. Support local nonprofits
Members pay to access exclusive perks from businesses like yours. And 20% of that revenue goes straight to charity.
If this sounds like you, contact us. We'll look forward to meeting you!
We choose merchants who believe commerce can be a catalyst for community.
We look high (and low) for companies that want to not only serve their bottom line, but do so while serving the Bend community at the same time. Specifically, we look for merchants who are committed to making Bend a welcoming, tight-knit community, working with us on an ongoing basis, creating exclusive offers they don’t promote anywhere else, and making good on their perks and offers to our members.
Last, but certainly not least, we consider things like customer reviews, location, family orientation, and few other criteria when choosing business partners. If you believe your business would fit with Supportist, then please contact us.
It takes about five minutes to sign up your business with Supportist. Adding a new perk into the system takes about 5-10 minutes on average. There is time associated with training your staff so they are familiar with your current perks. The time it takes to think up a perk is obviously variable and depends on prior experience, staff/marketing resources, and how creative you want to get. We are always happy to help with developing perks and training if you desire.
Nope. All of Supportist’s revenue comes straight from members, not partners. And we pass on 20% of a member's fee to a non-profit of the member’s choice. You support the Bend community and the Supportist model solely by creating perks and being on the platform.
We won’t make you sign a contract or sign a formal commitment, but we do ask you to stick around for at least 12 months.
Glad you’re interested! Contact us to set up a call or face-to-face meeting.
