Connecting local businesses with local lives... Kearsarge / Sunapee areas of NH.
Advertising/Sponsorship Information, Free Membership & Business Membership Informational Page
This site has been designed with the vision of having a comprehensive, one-stop resource for local community members to find just about everything they want and/or need within their local communities. It's mission is straight-forward: to strengthen our communities' economic health by keeping income and resources pumping through our local veins. Local jobs, local employers, local businesses, local people, local events, local listings... they all make up our local economy.
We have the businesses to do it and we have the people to do it.
Now we also have the streamlined resource to help make it happen.
Here at KearsargeConnects, local residents can find jobs within their local NH communities, businesses can fill job openings locally by marketing their jobs on our local job board, local businesses can market / advertise their products or services to their local community, and local residents can post / find local talent for skilled trade needs, items for sale, places / items for rent, local events, volunteer opportunities, rides to share, items wanted and create general community discussion.
What makes us different?
KearsargeConnects is unique in that we bring together the business community and the non-business community... right here, in one place.
Our Community Bulletin Board is our region's own social networking site and from there, members are linked to everything our community would want in a resource directory- from businesses to services, to the arts and entertainment.
Everyone knows there are many resources available for businesses in the area, as well resources for community members, yet for some reason, until now, they have been platformed separate from one another.
Businesses tend to co-mingle amongst themselves and their organizations, and the non-business community tends to co-mingle amongst themselves. A place that hosts opportunity for non-business locals to interact in the same space where businesses in the community extends their presence, is unique. It brings together the two elements required for a local economy to flourish, as both aspects of the community (business and non-business) are dependent upon one another. Local residents want your jobs, services and goods, and local businesses want your talent, skill and patronage. This co-mingling of community creates increased exposure and awareness of one another.
For non-business community members, we have a community forum / bulletin board for non-commercial communication and the ability for locals to post their items for sale / rent, events, needs /wants and discussion. It is our region's social networking site... like our own little 'Facebook' and Craigslist combined, and is set up to interact with the two top international social networking sites, Facebook and Twitter.
We also provide residents with a platform for gaining exposure within the community if they are self-employed or if they are an artist or musician.
For the local business community, we provide a platform for posting jobs within their local community, exposure in our Local Business Directory as, again, a business supporting it's community; and local, affordable advertising (to members of both the business and non-business community). And whereas our Community Bulletin Board is a social-networking site, it is an excellent venue for business marketing. It's all about expandig awareness... which is created by exposure.
Furthermore, KearsargeConnects acknowledges that in many cases, there is no separation between the business and non-business members of our local communities. For many of us, we are one and the same.

As a resident of one of the several towns making up the Kearsarge / Lake Sunapee region, have you ever looked for work in this area? If so, you know your search for an income opportunity is pretty scattered amongst various resources. In fact, most people find themselves turning to resources outside of this area, to larger communities such as Concord, Manchester, or the Upper Valley in HOPES of finding something fairly close to home so that half their time and income isn't absorbed in the commute.
Everyday people turn to the internet in their search for a job and when searching "jobs in NH", the results cover a such a broad area (the entire state) that it is difficult to pinpoint those few-and-far-between in our local area. KearsargeConnects allows local businesses and local residents working at local businesses to list their jobs / opportunities to those in our local NH communities.
As a business in our region, perhaps you've had the need to hire employees, and just as job seekers have had to turn to resources outside our local community, you probably have had to as well. KearsargeConnects strives to provide the resources for local residents to more simply find local employment and for local businesses to more simply hire local employees, by letting local folks know your needs.
With unemployment rates soaring, for those businesses fortunate enough to have job openings, perhaps you've experienced that placing one ad for a single job opening can result in hundreds of applicants, many of whom reside outside of our local communities, because those are the people finding the job opening. KearsargeConnects strives to market your business and your jobs to your community members, first and foremost. Will people outside of our communities still find your jobs? Of course they will, but let's be sure those specifically seeking you and employment with your company have the ability to find you.
We may live in a time of technology that puts the world at our fingertips, but the values of our region remain in tact. We know and take pride in the fact that our local communities consist of INDIVIDUALS, where everybody is somebody, and if we can support our neighbor by employing him or her, or by supporting his or her business, services or talents, that is something to celebrate! The health of our local businesses is only as strong as the health of our local economy.
Furthermore, for individuals in our communities who have something to offer others, whether it's information about an upcoming event, something they personally want to sell, or perhaps they are looking for volunteers, or to share a ride... the national bulletin boards are often too broad to get local attention. KearsargeConnects offers a FREE local community bulletin board so community members can communicate with one another. It's a local alternative to bigger community bulletin boards such as Craigslist.com, where local postings can get lost in the shuffle. Plus, why buy or sell to a distant stranger when you can buy or sell to a local community member?
At KearsargeConnects, together we are making a difference in the economic health of our communities.

The KearsargeConnects Community Bulletin Board is our region's own social networking site.
It's like our own little "Facebook"... and it's only "little" because it is strictly for our region of the state. It is packed with the power of the two top social networking sites in the world (Facebook and Twitter), in fact, we have apps set up so that members of our site can send updates automatically to their Facebook and Twitter profiles. This integration streamlines the effort to stay in contact with your followers. And as far as capabilities, members can customize their profile pages more so than other social networking sites, making us... dare we say... even cooler than the others?
As a site member, you may also request to be listed as a local artist/musician or skilled tradesperson, as well as post items for sale (non-commercial), post rentals, post local events, and post ride-share/carpool notices via the KearsargeConnects Forum.
It's like a blending of Facebook with a Craigslist!
