What Do We Do Anyway?

Here at Bham Now, we like to keep the good vibes rolling. We’re on a mission to create a smarter, happier, healthier, inspired, involved and prosperous Birmingham.

We’re invested in making our wonderful Magic City better by publishing positive, engaging and useful content. It’s not your typical press releases. Psst—we can get a little sassy when we need to.

You could consider us the highlight reel for the hottest and latest things going on in the Birmingham area. From start-ups, local jobs and education to restaurant openings, local breweries, arts and events (at a safe distance). Whatever it is we’re on it like white on rice.

Oh, we’re not just beer drinkers

Marketing directors, consider this your heads up that our audience has some extra change in their pockets.

Supporting local businesses is kind of our thing here at Bham Now. After all, we’re a locally owned business too.

In our audience survey this past July 2020, you told us that supporting local is more important to you than ever. You also told us that you’re digging what we’re putting out and showing it with your pocketbook. Our audience continues to prove that they speak through their actions and not just their words.

85% of our audience is more likely to support a business they see on Bham Now (Audience survey, July 2020)

During the pandemic, we wanted to do all we could to support Birmingham locals. We created a directory where you can input your business (or non-profit) for FREE. You can even include deals, curbside pickup and online ordering info.

You can ping our growing directory of over 800 small businesses and non-profits to get a sense of our love for small businesses. Little bites from the directory are promoted in our content and newsletters every week.
