Connect with customers in the Book of Lists

Sure, Amazon makes a big production out of its Prime Day sales and Black Friday shopping but the region's small businesses and shops are a lot more fun to browse.

From special artisan gifts to handmade cards, it isn't a question of whether you can find something you're looking for, but a matter of how you are going to decide between the many diverse offerings.

But what happens if the customers can't find you — or worse yet, don't know you exist.

Making sure your business has a place in the 2024 Book of Lists can help prevent that from happening. Set for publication in December 2024, this resource is a benchmark of the region's diverse and thriving business community.

If you're looking for a great gift, or need a bite to eat while out shopping, a quick look at the Book of Lists gives residents and visitors alike a handy reference to everything they want — and points the way to things they didn't know about but quickly become must-have faves.

The Book is an invaluable tool for everyone, both a directory of the businesses named to an exploration guide for shoppers looking to go beyond the big box stores or online retailers.

Instead of trusting to luck or hoping that potential customers stumble across your social media pages or website, the Book puts the information customers want — who you are and where to find you — at their fingertips in an easy-to-use, reliable, and trusted source of information.

The Book of Lists provides a direct connection between you and critical decision-makers across all sectors, enhancing your professional network. The comprehensive data and trends captured in the Book offer insights to make informed decisions. It is designed to be relevant year-round, providing insights into everything from economic data to where to go when you're looking for your next adventure. It highlights our community's successes, trends, and opportunities.

The submission link is already live and we invite you to submit your business information by Aug. 31, 2024. This is an open call to every regional business leader to participate and contribute to this new business resource.

Your participation gives your business invaluable exposure throughout North Idaho, capturing a comprehensive snapshot of our regional economic vibrancy.

Please join us. We're looking forward to sharing about your business and all you have to offer.
