WHO IS LOOK LOCAL FIRST?
We believe that small businesses need an advocate- somebody who is actively spreading the message to “Look Local First” on their behalf. That is why VizyPay created this movement, to support the makers and create a community of people who believe in and support this same message. Through strategic marketing and advertising we hope to grow our community of small business owners and advocates that help us continue spreading the word.
Did you know that when you spend $100 at a small local business, $68 stays in the community? When you shop at a large corporate chain that number is reduced to $43 and virtually nothing when you shop online. This is the kind of message we are spreading- it is crucial that communities understand why supporting small businesses is so important.
Get involved by purchasing from our shop! 100% of the proceeds go right back into our Look Local First cause through paid advertising, sponsorships, etc. We need your support to continue spreading this message! You can also join in through social media. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter so you can share our posts and help spread the word!

How can you show your support?
Obviously wearing a shirt with the message Look Local First helps to spread the word, but how else can you show your support for this campaign? EASY. Instead of opting for the convenience of free two-day shipping or grabbing a gift card to a corporate chain when you're at the checkout at the grocery store, do a little extra work and head to a local boutique or restaurant for these things. It's WORTH the extra effort. Show your support without spending a dime by sharing, liking and commenting on small businesses social media posts! Word of mouth is the best marketing.
