The Problem

Good Around the Globe the best marketing tool for small business owners

 

An Online Video Marketplace for

Do-Gooder Businesses and Customers

Women and minority-owned businesses are often created out of necessity & need for flexibility to provide basic needs for their families. These business owners largely generate less profit in their businesses yet they make contributions in thier communities at a higher rate than large corporations. 

However, while studies show that 90% of surveyed consumers want to know how companies are positively affecting their communities and the world, small business owners tend to not advertise their philanthropic efforts in their communities in a way that currently drives search traffic.  In an increasingly tech-driven society, online search traffic is the most powerful driver for an entrepreneur's success.

If there’s an increased desire from consumers to support conscientious business owners and a booming market for ethically obtained products and services, then why are so many socially conscious small businesses struggling and even going out of business? Because, up until now, there was no efficient way for these businesses to reach out to their target audience of buyers who are looking precisely for what they offer. 

 

 

The Solution  

Good Around The Globe works as an online video marketplace where socially impactful entrepreneurs and their businesses can list their products and services in an optimized way—connecting with their qualified target audience of ethically-driven consumers in an organic network that brings both together.

Why Are Some of the Best Small Businesses Going Bust?

Your Customers want to know the good that you do in the world. Good Around the Globe the marketplace that connects socially impactful small businesses with socially conscious consumers

If there’s an increased desire from consumers to support conscientious business owners and a booming market for ethically obtained products and services, then why are so many socially conscious small businesses struggling and even going out of business? 

Because, up until now, there was no efficient way for these businesses to reach out to their target audience of buyers who are looking precisely for what they offer.

Now, with Good Around The Globe, the best makers will finally get to connect with the best buyers easily.

 

What About Large Corporations With Proven Sustainable Practices?

Our view is simple: while these may be praiseworthy and definitely a good choice for ethical consumers, and while we’re happy to see large businesses taking this route, the truth is that they also have large budgets to advertise and reach out to consumers. Purpose-driven small businesses, on the other hand, do not.

That’s why Good Around The Globe offers such a streamlined and optimized marketplace for small businesses with low budgets: because they can instantly tap into an audience of motivated buyers without requiring millionaire advertising campaigns.

Good Around the Globe is perfect for small businesses with small budgets. We can help

Say Goodbye to Lengthy and Inefficient Online Searches

Good Around The Globe saves you endless hours of researching ethical and transparent sustainability brands and removes any doubts about the genuine intentions of businesses and service providers. You can instantly find the right product or service you’re looking for, offered by an entrepreneur that aligns with your concerns.

Paving the Way to Success for Socially Conscious Small Businesses

Good Around The Globe redefines the concept of brand loyalty. As a business owner who wants to do the right thing, you can finally and easily find and sell your products to consumers who will reward you for how you do business. In fact, happy consumers who feel their social concerns are being met by your business will organically share the word about what you do and offer—and that’s how you add success to your social impact business story!

Mutually Beneficial Do-Gooder Networking

Feedback is critical for makers and consumers. With Good Around The Globe, socially mindful entrepreneurs can network with customers and get feedback that will further allow them to improve and adjust their offerings to their target consumers. At the same time, ethically-driven consumers can get answers from businesses about any relevant detail about products, services, and conscious manufacturing and service providing practices.

This is how an efficient social impact market that truly brings balance,  works!

Modern-Day Heroes: Aprons, Not Capes

Modern-day business heroes wear aprons, not capes. They wear name tags, have hard-working employees, and wear many different hats. They sponsor local nonprofits, fix up cars for charity, or spend their free time partnering with various benefactors.

Good Around the Globe Heroes

 

Modern-day consumers are looking for these modern-day heroes: and Good Around The Globe brings both together!

Whether you’re one of these special modern-day consumers that want to help shape the world with how you spend your dollars or one of these extraordinary modern-day business heroes, we need your support to Good Around The Globe!

Nilvia Brinkley Owner of BrinkleyWeb and Good Around the Globe
 
Hey there! I'm Nilvia Brinkley.

I am a Financial Advisor turned Web-Designer with my company BrinkleyWeb & somewhat of a serial entrepreneur (because I just enjoy creating businesses.)

I help small business owners who are struggling with marketing & cash flow, but are SO PASSIONATE about their work, create an online home that turns their passion into consistent reliable cash flow. So they can stand out in their niche, work with dream clients, & grow a business that allows them to have more time for their families and themselves.

Good Around The Globe was a NATURAL transition for me. I LOVE helping small business owners. We see possibilities where others see none. Many, unfortunately, REALLY struggle with marketing. Especially the ones that are "Good" people because they don't BRAG about themselves. I'm giving them permission to brag about the things they are doing in their communities. This opportunity is SO important because it is going connect them to the perfect customers for them. Those new customers are going to be loyal because it'll be about more than just the lowest price.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are you using the funding for?

  • We have bootstrapped all of our funding up until now. Including the initial phases of our App buildout. We are seeking funding to complete Good Around the Globe as a Native App on Apple & Android mobile devices

Why do you need to build an app?

  • While our online directory WILL give our small business owners the visibility that they need, a native app will make it easier for customers to find them. We are trying to change consumer habits. That's a big task. It requires making the change as seamless as possible. An app will provide more ease of search, navigation to locations. We want to be a go-to tool on every phone that allows consumers to create their shopping list mindfully, then search for local, small businesses that can fill their needs.

How does this directory differ from other directories? 

  • GATG differs in 3 key ways
  1. We are a platform DESIGNED to give small business owners permission to brag about their businesses. Currently, many small businesses are already doing impactful work in their communities. Unfortunately, they do not have the time to think about how to tell that story. We are helping with that. We make it easy 
  2. We are an IMPACT-centered directory.  The way that we convey impact is through the business owner's own words. By showing their story through video.  Also, by the company's written description of their work. Once those things are documented they can actually be searched.
  3. You can search by cause. If you are personally feeling anxious about the number of children experiencing food insecurity, you may get overwhelmed by the task of fixing that problem. What we know is that the way this world is today. You are not eradicating food insecurity today.  But there IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING TANGIBLE that you can do before the end of the day. Open your GATG App, search for small businesses that support causes impacting food security. If you needed to add coffee to your shopping list this morning. Look for a coffee brand that believes in this cause you care about. Add THAT BRAND to your shopping list. Now you have changed your own impact for the day. Those small actions add up.   

How will you fulfill rewards?

  • As soon as possible.  Not trying to be cheeky. I postponed making requests for funding until we were ready to fulfill rewards. Several of my contractors had a few Covid related setbacks causing launch delays.
  • I am writing this on September 30th. All funders who support after that date should receive
  1. A Thank you email. 
  2. A bonus thank you Reward email
  3.  Then an instruction email for reward fulfillment.

Do you have a sizing chart for the shirt?

  • Yes, visit https://www.goodaroundtheglobe.org/shop for an idea of our sizing. The shirts in our campaign rewards are not listed in the shop as they are only available through our campaign.
  • Your fulfillment email will contain more information on the particular item.
