Linden Business Spotlight
The City of Linden is looking to feature one Linden business per week (Tuesday-Monday) on our website, as well as on the City’s Facebook page. Our website has had over 92,000 views and counting since it’s relaunch last July, and our Facebook page has over 3,900 regular followers, with a reach of up to 10,000 people. This is an excellent opportunity to gain some exposure for your business, new or established, and to provide a narrative of your business to the community.
What is a Business Spotlight?:
An article or editorial coverage of an individual business, offering highlights of what each business offers and the backstory of the company, owner, or employees.
Business must be located in the City of Linden.
- First come, first serve basis, featuring one business per week (Tuesday-Monday)
What to Include:
Completed form with name, address, phone number, website, Facebook or other social media links, and hours of operation for us to include in the formatting of the spotlight.
Business Narrative and/or description
To be featured for one week on Facebook and the City Website
What about images?:
Images can make all the difference! Please include up to 5 photos of your storefront, products, employees, owner(s), logo, graphics, or collages for us to choose from for the spotlight. Often the best images for a Spotlight are spontaneous — the kind of image you’d upload to Facebook or Twitter, such as your “team in action,” a look behind-the-scenes of your offices, the team at lunch, a shot of the owner wearing your company logo or “on the job”, a picture of the company mascot or pet, even the view out your office window.
Please name your photo attachments in order of preference from “Photo 1” through up to “Photo 5” so in the event there is not space to include all of the photos, we would use the lower numbered photos first.
What NOT to include:
No advertisements or sale notices
No political statements, endorsements, or advertisements
No swearing or inappropriate language
The City of Linden reserves the right to deem articles, portions of an article, or photos, inappropriate for the spotlight feature. Additionally, we may alter the content for clarity, length, or to fit our formatting.
