From increasing the number of Facebook 'likes' to bringing more traffic to your website, the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, the Intellectual Disabilities Association, our Daily Bread, Zeppoli's, and Champs will all get free marketing services from Heyo for one month to help their businesses grow.

"I'm so thrilled we get to be one of the participants because we are a small business too having the same growth issues," Catherine Sutton, Montgomery Chamber of Commerce executive director says.
