Independent We Stand – STIHL, Inc.

Independent We Stand is a nonprofit created by STIHL, Inc to focus on promoting independently owned businesses across the country reaching out to their communities and educating their neighbors about the many benefits of “buying local.”

The website was clearly defined by three distinct roles that all focus on small business owners: 1) To create a listing to promote their services and products 2) to educate and support through marketing materials, articles and give access to industry experts 3) To engage and promote “buy local” advocates. Although the website appears to be simple in design, it’s built with a good amount of integrated functionality. This includes business listing and management, annual nominations and contest management and the integration of a Shopify store. An app was also created to support the business listing.
