Business Community Database Program

Claim your business in the Western Mass Business Community Database

We have developed a database with over 42,000 businesses, 103 towns, and 4 counties. It is all about bringing the Western Mass business community together all in one place.

Claim your listing in our database and show that you are local and an essential part of the Western Mass business community.

Start by choosing the town/city you are located in and searching our existing database for your business. Once you have found your listing you can become a member and upgrade your listing to include your logo and more information about your business. If you do not find your business or you find your business but the information is incorrect, please contact us and we will help you make sure you are represented in your town correctly.

If you decide to become a member you will not only get a more detailed listing but you will gain access to our programs for businesses. Click here to learn more.

Badge Program

Help others in your business community know who you are!

Become a part of a movement of people who care about living locally here in the 413.  As you tell us more about you and your business, we will help make it easy for others who are like-minded to find you.

Our database is organized by town/city and everyone has a prepopulated list of all the businesses in that town. You can search by business name or keywords like a bank, insurance, lawyer… or whatever you may be looking for.

Perhaps more importantly, we already have 6 badges. These badges emphasize things that are important to people in our community but are not included in other directories and databases.

Media Program

Micro Businesses get highly discounted rates for local advertising!

Quarterly Media Blitzes – 4 times a year we have media blitzes that all of our media partners participate in and sync to promote the concept of spending your money locally.

Hot Spot Events

We make your events better

Living Local 413 prides itself in being as neutral and all-inclusive as possible and one way we do that is we do not have our own events. Instead, we prefer to work with other businesses and organizations and make their events better.

We bring our marketing, media campaigns, and people to your event and make it a better event!
