Our rationale

Trust Your Local – Supporting the Local Business Community.

More than ever, following the pandemic, the public want to shop local, doing their bit in supporting their local business economy and their community as a whole.

If local employment flourishes, it keeps us all in work.

It is true that in most communities, people tend to know our local trades people, local businesses, and venues either directly or indirectly.

Generally, we have no problem recommending people and businesses because we trust each other and can work together.

Trust Your Local (TYL) is all about connecting local people and businesses to support each other and develop new ideas.

As you can see that we are already attracting interest from a wide array of local firms, and events throughout the UK.

TYL needs all of your support in order that more people and customers can use our services and grow support for local businesses.

Here at TYL, we are also aware of the huge disadvantages facing our young people as they leave full time education. We are therefore looking to partner with schools, colleges, universities, and local businesses to offer support and encourage employment opportunities.

In addition, we are also doing our bit for the environment by keeping our carbon footprint low. This entire site was built and run locally, using Green Energy to power our servers…we truly believe that by working together, we can make a difference.

We are now looking for new licenced business partners to occupy our remaining available localities across the UK. To keep it focused on ‘local’, each licence encompasses approximately a 10-mile radius.

As a licensee you will be fully trained in all aspects of running the website including adding new businesses and events.

As well as the hands-on side of the business, we will also guide you towards becoming an expert in customer service, business management, marketing and all other essential tools required to launch and run your business.

Your role is to provide great customer service, whilst we take care of the tech side.
The start-up package cost £795.00 and includes: –

  • Your own exclusive geographic territory
  • Local domain (
  • Fully functioning website
  • Personalised email
  • Weekly site backups
  • Face to face training
  • Technical support
  • 100 window stickers
  • 2 magnetic car signs
  • 4 PVC roadside banners
  • 500 business cards
  • 5000 leaflets

Products, Services

  • Business listings
  • Event listings
  • Annual payment plan
  • Monthly payment plan

Earning potential

Your profitability, as with all businesses, depends upon the amount of effort you expend in growing your business.
As a very quick example…. 200 local businesses and 20 paid events equates to £5198 recurring monthly income. (This of course does not include any income from local events!)
We believe at just £24.99 a month; local businesses will be happy to take advantage of our professional platform to promote their business.

NOTE: our start up fees cover one post code area only. You are welcome to run more areas but they will be totally separate entities attracting another set of fees but also more potential income.
