El Clasificado launches Stimulus Package for Micro Small businesses that Need an Online Presence to Reach the Latino Community.
*Update: Deadline for Stimulus Package is now extended to May 31
El Clasificado has been fortunate to receive close to $2 million from the SBA Payroll Protection Program. Now El Clasificado wants to help less fortunate small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis.
The leading Spanish advertiser is offering the ‘Help 1000 Small Businesses Get Online’ marketing and advertising package to deserving small businesses operating in underserved Latino communities.
The package includes a 90-day Mas Clientes PowerPage (landing page website) completely free for 3 months, with an analytics dashboard and call tracking. The website will be managed by a personal account representative at El Clasificado. The small business will also receive a free listing on El Clasificado’s directory and 50 of the top small business directories and a claimed Google My Business page.
“We are lucky to have our employees back at work, but because of the lockdown we only have half of our customers actively advertising and therefore cannot keep our workforce busy. It’s against our work ethic to not be productive creating value. So, we decided it’s time to create value for the future by helping businesses with virtually no online presence get found. Many restaurants, consumer services, entertainers, and shops in areas like East Los Angeles and Huntington Park still have not claimed their Google or Yelp Business pages. Many of these mom and pop stores don’t have their own webpage. They simply cannot be found to exist. So we are going to help them,” claims Martha de la Torre, CEO of El Clasificado.
To be eligible, a small business must have 10 or less employees, must have been in business for at least one year, and must operate in underserved Latino communities. The program launches April 22, 2020 and ends May 04, 2020 at midnight. To be considered for this program, small business candidates must register here or call at (833) 619-0495.
It is our goal to help 1000 small businesses get online and jump over any obstacles caused by COVID-19. Helping our customers will help our community and help keep our employees employed.
