MAKING SMALL BUSINESSES PREFERRED ONLINE


Small businesses and their advocates face an increasingly uphill battle online with Amazon extending its online and offline grasp, search engines favoring the more established businesses, and technology trends continuing to ignore the gaps that have left small businesses and their communities at a disadvantage online.

Non-profit institutes such as ILSR and BALLE have been preaching the need to support small, local, and independent businesses. While awareness has increased, the threats, challenges, and hurdles facing small businesses are still growing. Much of the blame is directed towards Amazon; however, lack of favorable technology is the biggest threat to small businesses and their communities, and we are committed to solving the problem once and for all.
WHAT WE DO
Common People Services, LLC (dba SharedMall) is an Oregon-based provider of hosted website, e-commerce, search engine, and marketplace solutions for small businesses and their communities

Businesses across a wide variety of industries and local business communities have helped shape SharedMall over the past few years. SharedMall caters to the storefront needs of local businesses, innovation and growth needs of regional chambers of commerce, and shopping preferences of local consumers. We are not only enabling the fresh food/produce industry and consultation-based service industry to equally participate along retailers in online shopping marketplaces, but also enabling chambers of commerce across the nation to readily launch their own regional alternatives to currently predominant search engines and marketplaces that are increasingly channeling out local dollars from the community.
