The stand-alone websites below pull from the same database as Every.CITY, except the events, specials, news, businesses, etc. are limited to the specific specialty. Sign in and customize your Home Page Speciality Website list for quicker access.
If your business or organization is located in Madison, Kentucky, and your business or organization is not listed, you can join and begin posting your Events, Specials, Help Wanted Ads and News Items, all for FREE.
You can post stock conditions, open hours, what you are doing to provide a safe environment, as well as what you expect of your customers when they come to you. It is extremely quick and easy to update your information. You can also post additional items, and those posts are free as well. For example, you can post:
Next, there is a free lead system built into Every.CITY where local residents can describe what products and services they are looking for, attach an optional image, and then select the appropriate Business Category for their request. The system will then generate leads to all businesses in that Business Category that have indicated their interest in receiving free leads. The resident will be able to review the replies from the businesses that chose to respond (within Every.CITY), and decide which business to work with (outside Every.CITY).
There are many more things you can do in Every.CITY-- be sure to check out the Steps below...
There are also free educational applications where your children can play Math for Prizes, State Capitals for Prizes and more.
To help you get started, we have organized the features of Every.CITY into 10 Steps so you can learn and take advantage of everything at your own pace.
Using Every.CITY, businesses can keep residents up-to-date on how they are proceeding through the Covid-19 phases. Businesses can post their hours, stock conditions, how their processes have been modified to provide the safest conditions possible, and a lot more.
The Business Directories in Every.CITY provide icons for Google Maps, Covid-19 accommodations, hours of work, and more importantly for you, your icon next to your member businesses or organizations. When residents look through the directory to help them select the best business to work with, they will usually select those with Chamber, BBB or Downtown Association members as they know those businesses tend to be more legitimate, stable, and contributing members of the community. Non-member businesses also recognize that and how they are at a disadvantage, and maybe more inclined to join your Chamber, BBB or Downtown Association.
But for even more fun, students can try to win prizes offered by local businesses (i.e. an ice cream cone, a round of miniature golf, a slice of pizza, etc.). To win those prizes a student must answer 100 random 12 times problems in less than 5 minutes. There are other programs like State Capitals for Prizes, History for Prizes, and more will be added all the time.
But the best opportunity for Boards of Education is to use our templates to add your own questions and answers to our apps. By doing so, you can match your local curriculum to the challenge of earning prizes and increasing student knowledge through self-motivation, all for free.
