We Build Community

We Build Local Brands

You're not just a business owner

You're a risk-taker, doer, and a vital part of our community. You understand the critical role that local businesses play as the backbone of our economy. You employ our neighbors, staunchly support other local businesses, and often give to nonprofits until it hurts so that our entire community can thrive.

From The Bottom Of Our Hearts - Thank you!

We love local businesses in the Salem area

Pam Fahndrich, co-founder & Publisher
WhirLocal Salem

Let’s face it, small businesses in our community need our support more than ever. The problem is, big box stores and corporate America are constantly trying to squeeze out the little guys.

And, while big tech platforms and media companies suck billions of dollars out of our community, they simply don’t care about our local businesses and non-profits.

It just isn't right.

We believe our community deserves better

At WhirLocal Salem, we’re not a big tech media company.

Our community-based website includes a digital magazine and local business directory. We also provide publishing tools that empower our local businesses and non-profits to promote themselves without the drama and distraction of social media.

We might seem small at this point compared to big tech and corporate media, but we’re growing and working hard to help our local community thrive, and we truly care about the success of our small businesses and non-profits.

How We Help Your Business Grow

The Neighborhood Sponsorship is designed for those ready to take a leading role in the local scene, as well as boost their online visibility, reputation, and social proof in the community, all while lifting others up along the way.

Here are some of the primary benefits:

  • Community Sponsorship: By supporting our efforts to be a positive voice in our community, we in turn shine a spotlight on you as a community leader and cheerleader.

  • Online Reviews Made Easy: Reviews are a proven way to grow revenue, and we streamline the process of collecting and showcasing reviews from Google, Facebook, and on WhirLocal. Think of this as gathering a crowd of your happiest customers, all ready to tell anyone who listens just how great you are.

  • Prime Spot in the Local Business Directory: Imagine your business not just on the windowsill, but right at the center of it, where the sunlight hits the best. As a Neighborhood Sponsor, your business gets featured above the Business Supporters and free accounts in our directory.

  • Targeted Advertising in Magazine Articles: Imagine your business getting a special shout-out in stories and articles that are all relevant to the audience you’d like to reach. As our audience grows, so does the spotlight on your brand.

  • Automated Social Content with a Personal Touch: How would you like a social media assistant who can share articles that are relevant to your audience? We post interesting articles to your Facebook page and Google Business profiles 3-4x per month. When someone clicks on these articles, they’ll see that the piece is “sponsored” by your business

We're on a Mission To Take Back Local One Neighborhood At A time

We like to say “We’re Local & Proud Of It!” ™

This isn't just another advertising or marketing opportunity. It's about having a positive impact and supporting our local community while also enhancing your online presence, reputation, and social proof.

Sponsorships start at just $2970 per year (or $297/mo)

What Our Customers Are Saying


Great Resource!

WhirLocal never ceases to amaze me. That such a small, local web design and digital marketing firm can do so much (as much or more than many of the big box national companies) is astounding. I can't believe how lucky we are to have them in our community. I trust them completely with my website, SEO, and digital marketing.

~ Dr. Andrew Isaksen, NW Family Chiropractic


Stop What You're Doing and Call Them !!

I cannot emphasize enough how much Tim and Pam and the whole team at Whirlocal have done for our local business!!...
The value they bring to the table far exceeds the cost of services! If you are a business that needs exposure, needs education on brand growth or marketing, or just want to assimilate with the culture, people, and places of your local neighborhood, call Whirlocal and do it the right way !! You won’t regret it !
~Jonathan Rice, Independent Merchant Brokers
