With everything that is going on in the world at the moment, it is more important than ever to support small businesses. As a small business we are always looking to support other small and independent businesses, as we understand the highs and lows. Here are a couple of ways that you can support local and small businesses at the moment:
Leave them a Google review or Facebook review!
We understand that not everyone is financially able to support local businesses, but there are plenty of other ways that you can help. Following them on social media and leaving them a lovely Facebook, Google or Feefo review, will help a small business no-end.
Buy a gift voucher from a small business to use in the future
Buying a gift voucher from a small business is a great way to inject cash into your favourite small business, whether they’re a hairdresser, restaurant or online e-commerce shop.
Share your purchases on social media, it’s free!
Sharing your purchases on social media, is another wonderful free way to help support small businesses. As you are sharing awareness of that business and creating shareable content for them at the same time!
Send a kind message 😊
With many small businesses finding the current climate difficult, sending them a nice social media message or email will help give small business owners the strength to persevere. We all need some positivity right now!
Avoid refunding and cancelling
If you have reservations at a local business that cannot take their business online, then try to see if you can re-schedule your original booking. To prevent being left out of profit, many theatres, restaurants and music events are offering customers the opportunity to put their ticket towards another event later on in the year.
