Let us guide more local customers to your business by promoting you to the 7,500+ Silicon Valley residents that visit our website every month!

Your name/logo will be displayed on every page of our website, and will send our visitors to your website (or Facebook page, or Yelp page, etc.) when clicked.

No long-term commitment is required. Funds received go toward extending our reach to even more Silicon Valley residents!

Contact our Founder, Sanchez Michaels, at sanchez@nearbymatters.com to set up a meeting, or to ask for more information!


Please send general correspondence, submissions, and corrections to contact@nearbymatters.com.

Event submissions must include a link to a webpage that lists information for that specific event (it should not be a list of several events, it should focus on the specific event). If the event runs for five or more days, we can only post an opening or closing reception for it.

Additionally, events must be located within Central Silicon Valley (as defined by Wikipedia). This includes Campbell, Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Jose, Santa Clara, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale.
