Thinking CougsFirst! is as Easy as 1, 2, 3!

If you’re a Coug and want to support other fellow Cougs in their businesses and endeavors, then there’s no better time to start Thinking CougsFirst!

Here are three easy ways to Think CougsFirst! and support Coug businesses:

1. Identify

Before you start looking for products and services, think about what you need. Be intentional in your shopping and work to identify purchase needs before making them.

Are you in the market for a new car? Do you need a new insurance quote? Or maybe you just need a gift for a friend or family member.

Once you know what you’re looking for, you can start your search and be intentional in identifying Coug businesses that are selling the products and services you’re looking for.

When looking for products and services, be sure to first check the CougsFirst! Business Directory. Our business directory is a great resource for finding businesses that are owned, managed, and affiliated with WSU alumni and friends.

You can search by category, location, or name – making it easy to narrow down to what you need! When you find a business you’re interested in, take a closer look at their directory profile page or visit their website.

And when you make a purchase, don’t forget to mention that CougsFirst! sent you. Some businesses may even offer exclusive promotions or discounts!

3. Share

Supporting Coug businesses doesn’t just include purchasing from them. If you have a positive experience with a CougsFirst! member business, tell your friends and family about it!

Share your experiences on social media and leave a review. Word of mouth is powerful, and it can help support our Cougar community even more.

By following these three steps, and being intentional with your spending, especially during the holiday season, you can start to Think CougsFirst! and support your fellow Cougs in their businesses and endeavors.

Go Cougs! CougsFirst!
