The Marketing Volunteers for DBSBA

Get a BUY LOCAL Shop the Shores Card!

Our new locals discount card will be distributed with our new directory.  We are very proud of them both. It has taken a lot of time, effort and money to get these pieces ready for public.RewardsCard
Please remember if you are a merchant that displays SHOP THE SHORES decals, you will have local residents visiting your business with their card. It will be entirely up to you as to what discount or specials you offer. You can change your offer  at any given time according to what might be best for your business.  Maybe you are having a sale and would only offer an additional small discount.  Or maybe you will offer locals a 10% off merchandise, food/drink, admission anytime.  Maybe it will be a cookie or cupcake from our local markets. You figure out what is best for you and your business.
We believe that we will be getting a lot of brand reconnection from both the discount cards and the Directory.  DBSBA working for you.  WANT TO OFFER DISCOUNTS TO YOUR CUSTOMERS? CLICK FOR INSTRUCTIONS.

New Business Directories being Delivered!

The Daytona Beach Shores Business Alliance is pleased to announce we’ve finished our very first printed directory. Look for them in your local shores businesses.

This Business Directory is a resource guide and has been provided free of charge as a service to the public. Included information was taken from the City’s business license database and neither the DBSBA nor its volunteers make any guarantee of accuracy.

 They’ve been distributed over the last few weeks. It has taken a lot of time, effort and money to get these pieces ready for public.

We believe that SHOP THE SHORES will be getting a lot of brand reconnection from both the new BUY LOAL discount cards and the SHOP THE SHORES Directory.  DBSBA working for you!
