It is a private and secure online platform for businesses within a neighborhood to connect, communicate, and collaborate. Neighboring businesses share many values and challenges – sharing knowledge with each other empowers everyone to make smart decisions and succeed.
Sharing information and collaboration requires a trusted environment. Townsquared creates this by ensuring your community is made up of exclusively verified owners and employees of businesses inside and outside your neighborhood. You are in complete control over who sees your post – those in your neighborhood, those you have connected with outside your neighborhood, or both. Our registration process is rigorous and the website is private. We have taken the following measures to create this environment:
Relationships are the currency of vibrant communities. Connect with people you know and those you’d like to know but haven’t met yet.
Communications between members should be transparent and respectful. Please show tolerance for different opinions and viewpoints.
You’re an expert in something! Help others and be helped in turn. Your community thrives on its members actively contributing to one another.
As more members join, your community grows stronger and more valuable for all members.
Authenticity matters. This is a private network for the people who run local businesses, created as a place to share honest thoughts, problems, and opinions. Respect the privacy of all community members. Please do not share any information without the permission of the person who shared it.
Support members of the community by promoting them to others that would value their goods and services. For the community to grow, look to help others as much as others help you.
Help other businesses by sharing your experiences with resources and services you use to help run your business.
If you’re not using something – a clothing rack, a hammer – help others in your local community by selling, donating or lending it out.
Members should not aggressively solicit business from others in the community. Members of communities support each other, but no member should aggressively solicit business from others in the community.
