I always talk about you guys to local business owners and the first thing I usually ask is if they are a part of About Redlands. They usually know who you are, but I have experienced a few that don’t. My best explanation is that you guys help promote Redlands businesses and when they ask how I explain the different ways you do whether it’s through the directory, events, stories, feed and IGTV.
I always mention how great you guys are at suggesting new ways of getting out there, especially since I am a new business. Since you guys have been updating daily on any new news for businesses during this time I mention that now and how you guys helped me.
Honestly, I didn’t know who to ask and since you guys have so much contact with Redlands businesses you were the first one I thought of!
Thank you again for your help with everything. When all of this is over, I’m definitely going to increase my membership.

I've been meaning to thank you for continuing to let folks know about the Grove Market. Despite the negative comments (which there are always bound to be), we are finally getting the exposure and traffic that we have hoped for. The vendors are so thankful to have an outlet for our produce and are happy to be selling in the sunshine and open air to customers who appreciate having access fresh fruit and vegetables. Thanks again for your service, we really appreciate your voice! Abby Harned

Our pop up event last weekend was a huge success. Hundreds of people turned out to support our local businesses. I had at least a dozen customers tell me they came down after seeing our Instagram live on About Redlands and even more who came after seeing your posts about our event. We have a nice social media following, but it's so important to reach our local community through social media especially for events and About Redlands has that!

I am so thankful for all of your information and keeping us informed!

Green Accounting Team
I would like to thank About Redlands for advertising LOCAL businesses on their site. I was able to find two local businesses to help me with my needs lately and I have About Redlands to thank for this.
First – I used Pride Plumbing Services when my water heater went out on me. My water heater was still under warranty however when I called the manufacturer, there were no local companies in my area to help me. The manufacturer told me I was on my own. I remembered seeing Pride Plumbing on the About Redlands site and called them. Pride Plumbing understood that my family was without hot water (it was February and a bit chilly to be without hot water). Michael had someone promptly come over, do a diagnostic, order the part and the next day I had HOT water. It was amazing.
Second – I used Exigent for my business IT needs, whom I saw on the About Redlands FB posting. Dustin was absolutely amazing. I emailed him telling him I was a newbie. Dustin responded quickly, scheduled a phone call and was able to tell me what would be best for my business during our phone call. Better yet, Dustin was able to recognize that my very small business did NOT need the extensive hardware that was previously quoted to me by another IT professional. Dustin and his staff were able to accommodate my business at a VERY reasonable rate with excellent service. His staff even called me to tell me that they thought my project would take a little longer to do once they started it. THANK YOU for doing this. They were very professional.
Also – thank you to About Redlands for guiding me to these businesses. Angela Green
Citrone Restaurant & Bar
You do great work. I have lived in Redlands my whole life. I am fourth generation Redlands. I bleed this town and love our business community. Your promotion and assistance to others is consistent, fair, and extremely beneficial. I enjoy reading what you write about others and especially for those very small, boutique companies, your service is tremendous. Thanks for what you do. Brandon Pearce

How fortunate we all are to have this type of media for all of us to use. Deborah and her staff at About Redlands have brought us something that is special and unique. For those of you just inquiring about this page there is no other for resources and up to date information regarding anything to do with Redlands. Truly a visitor of Redlands or a longtime resident of Redlands & The Inland Empire should never be without. As a business owner there is no other advertising media that even compares with the results I have received from About Redlands! The time, effort and PASSION for Redlands that Deborah has put into About Redlands and her multitude of other support systems to Redlands is to be commended. Once again how fortunate we are to have Deborah and her business right here for our beloved city of Redlands! Owner David Hazekamp
Sister Sister Rescue
I love love LOVE about Redlands!!! It is my GO TO for all things Redlands. It is a very organized, and up to date site, that really keeps the community, and those visiting informed. Redlands is a special place, in a world gone crazy, we still have our gorgeous mountains, orange groves, local business, and small town charm. Also, my non-profit (Sister Sister Rescue) has been supported by About Redlands, and it has made our efforts to help local homeless animals even more fruitful. Never change Redlands! Thank you to those who work to preserve and improve our town. Allie Johnson
American Acrobats Performing Arts & Fitness
Marketing with about Redlands has been one of my best decisions for my new acrobatic fitness studio. The coverage that I get for the price is unbelievable. I always ask my clients where they heard about us and I often get feedback that it was through About Redlands. Debra has been a huge help to me. I am not very computer savvy so she has been very patient. It was smart for me to allow the professional to do what I am not good at! I also want to say that I have used about Redlands for my own personal use. It is the best place to go to know what is going on in Redlands. It lists all the events and all the fun things to which is great when I'm looking for something to do on the weekends. Karen Castle
This is the ONE PLACE to go to get the skinny on what's happening in and around Redlands. Which, by the way, is a #coolplacetovisit with #lotstodo including #gorgeousscenery #greatlocalfood and #uniqueshopping. I may be biased 'cause I live here, but having traveled nearly 10,000 miles through countless small towns across America this past year, I don't think so. Redlands rocks! #smalltowngetaway #notlosangeles
Best spot to find out what's happening in Redlands!!! What's new, upcoming events, Grand openings etc. Also great place to Advertise your personal business!!! Agent - Berkshire Hathaway Perrie Mundy Group

Shoulder to Shoulder Communications
About Redlands is a site created by a resident who knows what Redlanders need and want. It's everything in one spot, and like most community products, it's done with heart. This is a business that supports local businesses with honesty and enthusiasm, and gives freely of space and skill to the nonprofits that keep the town churning. If you're not taking advantage of the opportunity as a client, you're doing yourself a disservice; if you're not taking advantage as a Redlander, you're out of the loop. Toni Momberger - co owner
Shannon Leeton Rankin
Oh how I love About Redlands! As a client, it is by far THE best marketing tool around! My business increased virtually overnight when I signed on last year (no exaggeration!). Deborah is the most professional, relatable, easiest person to work with, who truly cares about peoples' success. As a subscriber, I am never left wondering what is going on in our little town. AR keeps everyone up-to-date on weekend activities, events, dining, and everything in between. I look forward to every post. So happy I stumbled upon this gem!
We all love Redlands for different reasons. People. Community. Food. Landscapes. Hometown. Stories. Whatever motivates you, Deborah's commitment to About Redlands is always there providing us with a landing page for the best local eats & hangouts, local events, and building relationships by connecting people, businesses and artists. About Redlands is an amazing platform for promoting local businesses, fundraisers and artists. If you fall in to one of these catergories, make @aboutredlands your go to page and improve the reach of your social media. Local Photographer

THANK YOU for sharing our job flyers. I received about 25 inquiries and hired 2 college students to share the office assistant position at Playworks.

Cutie Pie's Grooming
Six months ago my daughter and I opened our Pet Stylist business here in Redlands. We did not know anyone in Redlands just loved the location. Once we opened I looked for a way to let the people in Redlands know we were here and taking new customers. One of my customers told me to look up About Redlands. Well to make a long story short within the past six months we have grown so much that we have hired a part time stylist . All this is because of the people who have seen Cutie Pie's Grooming on aboutredlands.com.Thank you so much aboutredlands.com for helping our grooming business turn so successful! Pam Morrissey

Stone Wheel Olive Oil Co.
Thank you, quite a few people who have been to AboutRedlands.com have been coming to the store. Just last night a lady knocked on the window after I closed to tell me she saw my ad and just wanted to say how happy she is that the store is in Redlands. I love it! Coming soon, Nappa Smoked Olive Oil as requested by a customer!
This is a GREAT site for both "locals" and visitors to find goods and services we actually want or need right here close to home--We use it all the time to "refind" our plumber (Al's Sewer Service), HVAC service (Burgeson's, of course!), Pest Control (Craig and Sons) and anyone else we might need! We love the community event support, too!
I reference AboutRedlands.com daily to find out what's going on in Redlands. Thank you, it's a great resource. Reporter- PE
I follow AboutRedlands quite a bit via Facebook and have even tried my hand at one of your photo competitions several months back. I know a lot of the people at ESRI who are new to Redlands use your website quite often to find things to do, see, eat, etc. Scott
Hello About Redlands!
I've spent a lot of time in Redlands over the past few years but moved here permanently just weeks ago, so this is a great welcome to Redlands and your Facebook page has provided great information on local happenings and businesses. I didn't miss Parliament Chocolate's opening this past weekend due to your posting--what a great local group of people opening a shop I'll be sure to visit.
Scott Sames - Christian Handyman
He has been very steady for past few months, a lot coming in from the page (YAH!) so he hasn't had any time to write an article or think of anything to get more business (he is a bit overwhelmed right now). Thanks again for all your assistance. Love the site!

Dear About Redlands, Referrals are the best compliments I can receive. Thank you so much for the recent referral of Alan C., and others, to me for my photography services. It was a pleasure working with Alan and his fiance in providing a corporate head shot required by his employer with an extremely short deadline. After a 25 day business trip, Alan returned home yesterday to Redlands and we were able to meet in the late afternoon to make this happen for him. Your AboutRedlands page continues to be a fabulous source of information for local happenings and business support. I appreciate receiving new customer referrals. Thank you again for sending new business my way. Best, Gina Diaz

I spoke with a woman last night who follows you on FB. She just loves your postings and frequents the businesses you feature she said. So you are doing a good job.
I have noticed that you post the daily specials for the Tartan Restaurant. My wife is a waitress there and she has told me that since you have been posting those specials they have been getting quite a bit of new traffic coming in. I was wondering if you could post a special for my Window Cleaning business?

We just want you to know how much we love AboutRedlands.com. We posted our company Hoy Landscaping and Construction on your site in January. We have received several jobs off this site so far, and expect many more customers in the future. Also, when customers Google landscaping or construction on-line we come up to the top due to your search engine. We feel this site is not only good for us, but promotes Redlands too. We look there first now when we need other services. We feel so good regarding AboutRedlands.com that we put them on our fliers and vehicles. We sure enjoy seeing what’s going on in Redlands and what restaurant Martha Green has tried recently. We think all businesses should advertise on this site. Soon it will be everyone’s first choice. See our web page here
Isabella's Ristorante Italiano
We tell everyone about the web site and I am even starting to list the web-site in ads where I can. I get calls from confused people all the time and always tell them to go to your website and download a free dinner coupon and some people now come in once a week again thanks to the coupon so it is slowly building and I love it...THANK-YOU..!!!

We ran a "Free Scone & Coffee" coupon on AboutRedlands.com which was quite adventageous for us. Many new customers presented it as well as regulars. We appreciate this method of advertising and will do more this year.
