We endeavor to promote women in business and entrepreneurship and to promote those businesses through networking, promotion, patronage and more. We have programs and initiatives in place that are fashioned to empower, rejuvenate and promote growth for you and your business. Toward that end, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to lease virtual space on our CLS Virtual Vendor Mall!
On the Virtual Vendor Mall, you will become a part of an online virtual store, making it possible for your business to gain and enjoy MAXIMUM EXPOSURE — and all for a low monthly fee of $12.00! Other perks include:
Become a preferred vendor of our online virtual store
Promotion of your business on all CLS social media outlets
Expand patronage of your business by offering CLS members 10% to 20% discounts on your products or services
An opportunity for additional advertisement, at special rates, in the Classy Chronicles, our quarterly digital magazine with over 80,000 subscribers
What’s more, 100% of your monthly CLS Virtual Vendor Mall fee will be used to purchase donated items to present to select nonprofit and community service organizations nationwide. For example, 100% of the proceeds of Vendor Mall fees can purchase toiletry and make-up kits for domestic violence survivors living in a shelter at Valentine’s Day! It is our way to innovate how entrepreneurs interface with their customers, as well as provide a platform for small businesses to give back to the community.
CLS is committed to hosting high-end, premier events, galas and social functions throughout the year. CLS hosts several “open to the public” events yearly which lend themselves to expectant attendance of 100 to 300 persons. Please note, as our CLS Events Calendar fills with charitable events, giving campaigns, galas and social and networking mixers this is a perfect opportunity to take your virtual vendor presence and be at the forefront to vend your goods and services.
Stay tuned for MORE exciting vendor opportunities!
THE GIVE BACK CLUB
Where shopping and giving are in the bag
We firmly believe in supporting small businesses and helping to keep the small business community active and profitable. CLS offers its Membership the ability to obtain discounts on products and services provided by participating vendors. CLS Members are encouraged to support businesses which support CLS and the journey we are on to change the world with our volunteer and Random Acts of Kindness (R.A.O.K) efforts! Through our commitment as a women’s only non-profit organization, our core values are entrenched in volunteerism, community outreach, and fostering an environment and an opportunity for small businesses to flourish.
All of The Classy Avenue Vendors give back 100% of their yearly leasing fee to charity. CLS with the help of our Vendors will continue to not only help innovate how entrepreneurs interface with their customers but CLS is providing the platform for small business to give back to the community. When one shops at The Classy Avenue, they are making a conscience decision to support the #cause of #volunteerism. By supporting the vendors which subscribe to the virtual mall, you’re taking a stand and directly partnering with that business to show that you care enough to want to see them promote their services and goods at The Classy Avenue. Your patronage encourages our vendors to lease virtual space, and when space is leased, charities benefit!
Please show your support for small businesses as they support CLS in helping to make a difference in our communities! “Invest in You, While Investing in Others”.
