Information for Businesses

WAITT has an excellent opportunity for your business!

Remember when someone moved to town and all of the neighbors welcomed them with homemade goodies? Neighbors would also help new residents with advice on which local professional services and local establishments to consider.

WAITT continues that welcoming tradition! Last year, WAITT visited 150 new residents. We plan to double that in 2017, with the ultimate goal of welcoming every new resident.

In April, WAITT’s Welcome Program will deliver reusable tote bags – filled with promotional items and gifts from participating local businesses – to 50 new Ashland residents. We’ll also include information about our town and many local organizations, to show new residents what wonderful things are happening in our community.

We invite YOUR BUSINESS to participate in this upcoming round of WAITT’s Welcome Program, to highlight what you do and to give our new residents a good old-fashioned welcome.

  • Welcome Program is open to 20 businesses.
  • Entry into Welcome Program is available on a first-come, first-served basis, especially because   some categories are exclusive, and WAITT Member Businesses have first choice.*

*Note that being in the Welcome Program is included as a no-charge benefit for WAITT Member Businesses. Ask us how YOU can become a member of WAITT.

  • WAITT Welcome Program options for non-Members:
  • BASIC level: $5 per bag / $250 total
  • With optional COUPON DESIGN/PRINT SERVICE: $6 per bag / $300 total

A WAITT team member can assist with ideas for your promotional items. Be creative – the more fun you have putting something together, the more likely you will spark the interest of new residents who need your services. In addition to your promotional items, we recommend including a redeemable coupon that will enable you to track your success. WAITT can design and print a custom coupon for your business for the fee shown above.

If you would like to be part of this current round of WAITT’s Welcome Program, prepare your 50 promotional items and/or redeemable coupons, and deliver them with your check payable to WAITT, Inc., to 73 Main Street (The Purple Ink Building) no later than April 7, 2017.

Let WAITT help you get your word out!
