JB Communications is featured in the July edition of Biz New Orleans for building the largest directory created for verified, locally owned businesses in the Greater New Orleans area! One of the things we worked really hard to accomplish during COVID-19, was keeping our clients visible through search engines, social media, and local resources. During our research, we discovered that it is not easy to find an extensive list of verified locally owned businesses to patronize in the Greater New Orleans area. Thus, ShopLocalNola.com was conceived.

Shop Local New Orleans: What is ShopLocalNola.com?

Shop Local NOLA is a user-friendly directory in which consumers can search locally owned businesses in their area. Businesses can increase their visibility, and shoppers can easily locate products and services that suit their needs. ShopLocalNola.com has nearly 2,000 verified listings for businesses in the parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, St. Tammany, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, and Tangipahoa. Local owned businesses can claim or add their listing for free.

Pushing Forward During and After COVID-19

JBC’s mission has always been to support businesses that need guidance while strengthening their brand and improving their visibility. Now, more than ever, it is important to support local businesses during and after COVID-19. ShopLocalNola.com is designed to support locally owned businesses, as well as give customers the opportunity to search services and products available in their area.
