Is your company offering any new products or services since COVID-19? Please describe.

In the current crisis we have seen a rapidly growing number of advertisers use Innocode Local Offers to update their customers on things like opening hours, home delivery options etc., and the tool works great for this! An LMA media member can easily offer it as a public service to local government, businesses and organizations, enabling them to instantly reach the community through the extensive reach of their local media company. We are currently offering Local Offers/Shop Local at 50 percent off to LMA media members.

They did a lot of training and helped us with best practices. We now have a number of clients using ShopLocal on a regular basis.
