Happy Small Business Saturday!
This year has been a tremendous strain on small business owners and many of us are still recovering from pandemic losses. Supporting local means your favorite shops can stay your favorites. It reduces the carbon footprint of your purchase through lower emissions and fuel. Best of all research shows that over 50% of of revenue from local shops goes back into your community!
However, if your budget makes it hard to shop this year, here are a few ways you can still support your favorite small business without spending money:
- Share the love on social media! Give your favorite business a boost by mentioning them on social media. You never know if friends and family are in the market for their product or service. Be sure to tag the business in your post so they can see it and share it too.
- Write a review on their website. It’s free and helps other potential customers make buying decisions. Your words might just encourage the next sale.
- Tell a friend! If you love a product be sure to tell your friends about it! If you love it, they might too!
- Root for small businesses! Engaging with their posts on social media and sharing their posts on your own feeds doesn’t just spread the word it also helps a brand’s posts show up higher in the algorithms and reach more potential customers overall.
I’m so thankful for your support today and everyday!
