About Us

We know and realize the importance of supporting locally owned businesses.  After all, these are the very businesses that support the place we call home, Southwest Florida.  Supporting locally owned businesses keeps your hard earned dollars right here within Southwest Florida, creating a strong economy and a healthy community!

“What’s Up Southwest Florida” has developed a platform where the local community can come and not just learn about what our local community has to offer but learn about YOUR local business to further encourage buying from YOU, the local businesses, rather than go to the big box stores.  Buying local allows more of our hard earned dollars to stay right here within our community, helping our community become stronger and healthier as our money is staying right here!

We are not like most social media marketing firms as we support local business owners by providing them the opportunity to expand their online and social media presence without having to build their own audience or following.  Through the years we have built an audience and following looking for information from YOU about YOUR local businesses.
