ShoutOUT® Tampa Bay  Finalist in LocalShops1 Best Local Businesses Awards, Voting Open.
Largo, FL,  July 9, 2012 –  ShoutOUT® Tampa Bay has been nominated for a 2012 LocalShops1 Best Local Businesses Award and is a finalist in the ‘Best at Grassroots Marketing’ category.
The Best Local Businesses Awards honor small businesses and shoppers who are influential, mutually supportive, and encourage the ‘shop local’ movement in the Tampa Bay area. The Awards are designed to recognize small businesses, help them achieve success and stay successful, and motivate the community to shop and support local.
A total of 30 finalists were selected in five categories and determined by factors including the number of nominations received, details provided within the nomination, and the business’ level of interaction between community and businesses online and in person.
ShoutOUT® Tampa Bay is one of six finalists in the ‘Best at Grassroots Marketing’ category.  LocalShops1, the Awards’ founder, describes businesses in this category as not having a large advertising budget, “but this business doesn’t need giant billboards to get the message out.  Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, email marketing, cross-promotions, and good old-fashioned word of mouth bring in customers.“
