FDC Publishing is proud to support our returning military men and women. We have joined the American Hometown Heroes program so that we can be of assistance to those who choose to start a new business.
American Hometown Heroes was created by a coalition of independent yellow page publishers throughout the United States to assist service men and women wishing to become new business owners. The program helps those in service develop their “go-to market” strategy as well as providing a one year online and yellow page advertising program tailored to advancing that strategy. Contact us today to see how to get started!
The mission of The American Hometown Heroes Grant is to provide business and professional assistance to individuals who have returned from the military service, and are starting businesses within the communities phone book publishers serve.
Our vision is to provide free online advertising, yellow page advertising, and marketing consulting to promote veteran entrepreneurs in their civilian business endeavors. Assisting veterans in the first critical year of their new business is important to us.
Every year, thousands of men and women proudly serve in our military, preserving the freedoms and democracies that make our country great. Yet, when these veterans return home, they find the current state of our economy does not provide them the support and job opportunities they were hoping for. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate among military veterans is nearly double the national average! And with more troops expected to be returning home in the next few years, the situation may get even worse. The American Hometown Heroes want to help those struggling with this problem as much as possible.
Throughout America, independent yellow page publishers are in a unique position to help. Print and online yellow pages continue to be the number one source for consumers when they want to find a local business. More specifically, in the last year alone 84% of people used either print or online yellow pages. Telephone directory advertising has been rated as the most trusted and accurate source to choose. As a result, print and online publishers are a great resource for any individual looking to start a new business.
Thus, the “American Hometown Heroes” initiative was founded. FDC Publishing has joined a group of independent publishers that have banded together to offer our returning heroes a “welcome home” opportunity! We are willing to provide our professional advice and marketing assistance to any returning veteran that would like to start a new business in their hometown, all at no charge to them! This program includes a comprehensive advertising program in both print and online for an entire year. Our military veterans have received training in a wide variety of occupations and trades. Now they can put those skills to work for themselves, right in their own hometown.
Whether they start their own business in the retail, professional, or service sector, we will help them get started. What better way to put America back to work than investing in the deserving men and women of our armed forces!
