The mission of Shop Down South App is to provide affordable marketing to small business owners and entrepreneurs. The platform has been created to give consumers a place to shop for unique products to purchase or places to visit. Many new business owners and entrepreneurs can't afford to spend tons of money on marketing, yet they offer a product that the world should know about. The app is affordable and costs less than $100 per year for the business owner. The market for the app is endless. We offer the app to kiddie/school age entrepreneurs, college students making great products in their dorm rooms, and even adults that may be opening their first store front or online business. Shop Down South App is a mobile app that allows customers to go right to the category they are searching for and explore businesses. If a business is only operating from Facebook or Instagram, we have a direct link to their page from their profile. We are seeking funding to sponsor business owners that are unable to pay for marketing. We also have to pay to keep the app listed in the iOS and Google platforms and would love to pay up the fees for at least the next two to three years. The app is owned and operated by me, DeAngela Dothard. I am building this from the ground up! The idea all started with my podcast. I interview small business owners and they all had the same issue, marketing. I then decided to create a solution to the problem. I did my research and had the app developed by an awesome company. The app is now up and running and it's my mission to make the platform a place that is thriving and full of small businesses worldwide!
