Shop Local Competitions
Win a prize and help a local business at the same time!
We run competitions to that support local businesses, by buying goods and services from them and offering them as prizes.
Here's our theory: We need to advertise, like any business. We could spend $50 on a Facebook Ad, which would work, but doesn't help anyone else. Instead, we spend that same $50 on a voucher for something from a local business, and offer that as a prize. The business gets a sale, you get to win $50 of something useful and we still get our advertising result. Everyone gets something and hopefully keeps local people employed. Much better!
Here's how it works:
- People tell us what they'd like to win
- We purchase it from a local business
- We offer it as a prize to our readers
- Entry is free, but you need to sign in
Prizes are currently chosen by Sensational South Coast. As we get more feedback from our readers, prizes should be more specific to what people would like to win. We don't plan to support businesses outside the region or large chain stores, unless run by a local franchisee.
If you have a suggestion for a prize, or own a small business and are interested in being involved, please contact us.
