Grow Your Business Through
Fresh Chalk Referrals

Fresh Chalk is a community of people sharing recommendations for their favorite local businesses and services with people they know. That makes Fresh Chalk recommendations more trustworthy than the impersonal (and often fake) reviews found on other sites. As a business owner, you have the opportunity to connect with friends of your existing customers and grow your client base through word of mouth referrals.

How does it work?

Create a user profile

The first step is to become a member of the Fresh Chalk community yourself by creating a user profile with your real name and photo. It’s important that members can see that you’re a real person! Add a few recommendations of your own to support other business owners and to provide value to your customers and the community at large.

Manage your business listing

Next, claim your business listing. If your business doesn’t exist on Fresh Chalk yet, you can add it. As a business owner, you can enhance your business’s page by customizing the photo, making sure all contact information is correct, and adding a “Message from the Owner” with more information on your services. Invite your customers to recommend you on Fresh Chalk, and add a Fresh Chalk badge to your website so prospects can read about how great you are.

Increase your presence on the site

Build trust and boost your business’s reputation by getting involved. Thank people who’ve recommended you by commenting on their post. Chime in on conversations when you have ideas that might help members of the site. As you form connections and build relationships, you’ll find opportunities to win new business.

Additional opportunities

Are you an expert on a topic that people care about? Do you have a great small business story to tell? Partner with the Fresh Chalk marketing team on an Expert Guide, blog post, or social campaign to help get the word out.


Susan's Green Cleaning

We love Fresh Chalk! The customers who've found us on this site have been such perfect fits for our business! The customers trust the recommendations by Fresh Chalkers, so a lot of the "work" involved in explaining why our company is of value, etc., is already taken care of before we even start!
