The KYML directory | Finding The Local Business
We are a locally focused business directory - connecting everyday conscientious shoppers to businesses with a high local value… KYML is here to bring new value to small and medium businesses, you know the ones that are all around us and owned by our neighbors, friends, family and community members. Yes, those ones that sustainably support our local economies in a meaningful way. Yeah, we’re bringing value back to those businesses.
To do this though we have to bring value back to you, the shopper, the consumer and the everyday purchaser. Helping you understand the power of your purchases as real investment into the local community and economy. This is the value we hope to bring shoppers and businesses as we support real change in habits that the modern marketing world has led us stray from by coaxing us into emotional purchasing, impulse buying and well, not paying attention to our values.
Designed to inform consumers and empower people to shift their day-to-day habits of buying cheap to save money and purchasing on convenience because let’s face it, we all want to make life easier and more enjoyable. However, we’ve found that this usually involves sending our money out of our communities and likely even out of the country.
It may be a bit idealistic but the best of things are. Believing that this can help shift the way people think about everyday purchases and remind them of their incredible powers of being a consumer is how we strive to strengthen our communities and our nations. As consumers become more aware of the impact of their spending, a new competitor to online shopping and advertisement will emerge. That’s us, KYML.
As always, thanks so much for reading our blog! We hope you are enjoying this series and the many more we have planned.
