Helpmate Founder, Mike Skidmore, has owned a successful real estate business in his local community for over 30 years. Throughout his years in business, he began to notice a disconnect in his community. Businesses were struggling to remain profitable and eventually closing their doors. They were having trouble reaching consumers right in their own community. Mike decided to create a solution for this ongoing problem. He has a passion for helping his local community and small business owners. This passion prompted him to found Helpmate.
Helpmate was founded in 2015 with the goal of becoming an online gathering place to promote and grow local communities in the real world. We recruited the best professionals to help us build a world-class web solution that lets you manage your promotions and SEO from one login.
We know small businesses are the backbones of the economy and the local charities rely on our support from our community. That is why we are committed to promoting small businesses first. Helpmate lets you build a customizable network of businesses and organizations with exclusive deals and local events, keeping all your favorites at your fingertips.
We facilitate promotions by allowing local businesses to create ads on our site for their promotions or events. The promotional ads will display through user visits or searches. Our users can create accounts as well to save their favorite promotions, business or charity for quick access later.
