The minimum image size is 550 X 550 pixels. Shop Local Kirkland requires beautiful images to maintain the look of our collective main street. Product shots should be well lit on white or dark backgrounds, or with the background completely out of focus. A single image of your brick and mortal shop is a good idea, if applicable. If you need help with photography, email email@example.com.
The City and partners are planning a robust consumer engagement campaign, with incentive marketing as part of its strategy. Shop Local Kirkland also relies on Kirkland businesses to promote the initiative as well as their goods, services and offerings via their own media and marketing platforms and efforts. This commitment extends the reach for the entire marketplace.
We are working to create consumer incentives to drive traffic through the platform to Kirkland businesses. In addition, media, public relations, social media strategies, neighborhood and community mindedness and the individual as well as collective efforts of our business community will all help to drive engagement. We are all in this together.
