Go ahead, call me Captain Obvious, but I love the Internet. I live in a fairly small town on the west coast which means I especially appreciate the Internet for being able to find exactly what I want when I am shopping. One of my favorite recent purchases was an insulated coat that was thinner than most and stuffs into it's own pocket to the size of a grapefruit. I needed it for multi-pitch rock climbing routes that I do. It needed to be small enough to clip on my belt-loop, but keep me warm while I was holding the rope for my climbing partner. That, my friend, was not something to be found in my small town. I found it online, and, after shopping around, got it for a smoking good price from a small company.
I also love the fact that super specialty companies can survive because of the Internet; that they were creative and courageous enough to launch a specialty business and can thrive.
At the SheerID offices, we've had a bunch of specialty companies recently launch exclusive military discounts. Can you feel the love? Small businesses want to support the military market with an exclusive discount, and the military market can support small businesses and really help them survive.
Here's a list of five small, specialty companies who want the military market to know that they support them, appreciate them, and put their money where their mouth is by offering an exclusive military discount:
