If your business or organization:
1) Hires Military/Veterans https://militaryappreciation.us/hiring-veterans
2) Provides products and services that help military/veteran families
3) Offers a Discount or Special to Military, Veterans, or their family members
...then your business qualifies to be a part of the Military Appreciation Directory
We proudly will assist in branding ANY business, regardless of size or budget, in becoming military friendly.
Marketing to the military and their families represents a huge opportunity. The military market alone (active duty, reservists, retired, and employees) equals over 8.2 million consumers. Plus, there are over 30 million military spouses and veterans with a purchasing power of over $1 trillion annually.
Military families are a unique consumer market. Compared to the national average, military families:
Have 35% higher income
Have 3x more vacation
Move 2x as often to a new address
Travel over 5x as often
And here’s a bonus stat:
Over $700 million is spent annually on apparel just by discharged military personnel–they retire their uniforms
FYI: Showing genuine support for our military expresses caring and goodwill. Military patrons are loyal and will share their experiences with their family and friends. The majority of CIVILIAN consumers said they look favorably upon businesses that are military friendly.
NOTE: The Military Appreciation Directory (MAD) is funded ONLY by the area businesses that see the value and benefits of marketing their products and services to the military community.
...the Military Appreciation Directory provide military men and women a FREE LOCAL mobile directory that lets them know the area businesses and organizations care and support them. We save them TIME and MONEY
....MAD provides a great way for business owners to say "Thank you for your service!" while promoting their products and services directly to the smartphones of thousands of military men/women and their families
Pictured are just a few of the resources we have used to market the MAD to our military/veteran family members.
Military Appreciation Day at Cordova Mall was a HUGE success. Parents and kids had a great time. "THANK YOU" to the over 45 military friendly vendors who participated. And "THANK YOU" to all the military/veteran family members who attended. Click below for Picture Gallery. More to come....
There are thousands of businesses and organizations in the NW Florida area that generously support our military men and women by offering discounts, services, jobs, or programs, designed to help them. But how are our veterans supposed to know....
- WHO DOES?
- WHO DOESN'T?
- WHAT DO THEY OFFER?
- and WHERE ARE THEY LOCATED?
For those reasons, we created the Military Appreciation Directory. The MAD is FREE and is used by thousands of military men and women (see analytics below) who want to KNOW what is available to them in our LOCAL area. Whether they are visiting, living, or deployed here, we provide them this information FREE, right on their smartphones
MUCH MORE THAN DISCOUNTS:
The MAD is a great resource for finding MILITARY DISCOUNTS but that is only part of what we do. We supply military men/women and their families with information regarding:
- LOCAL JOBS/Human resources
- Home/Mortgage/Loans programs
- Insurance Information
- Car Buying Programs/Auto Repair
- Military NEWS
- Attorneys/Legal Aid
-VA Information/Veteran Service Org
-and MUCH MORE
IMPORTANT: ALL Veteran Service Organizations (VSO) and veteran related non-profits are listed FREE in the MAD. We want and need our veterans to know what services are available to them
Please let us know what you think of us. Our goal is simply to make a difference by connecting our veterans with the local businesses/organizations that can help them
