Small Business Saturday, the day after Black Friday, is a day to celebrate small businesses, but they need your support all year long. Here are 6 Ways you can support small businesses:
In your own community and online, there are many small businesses that need your support to compete with larger companies. This is especially true now when many small businesses have struggled due to mandatory closures.
Take a minute to comment on something a business page posts. When you engage with a local business on social media it will have a huge impact on their visibility. Unlike many large businesses, small businesses thrive from building personal relationships. Join in on the discussion and let them get to know you!
Many small businesses rely on word-of-mouth. Tell your friends about your favorite small businesses!
You can support small businesses online by sharing posts, checking in on Facebook, snapping a photo, and tagging the business on Instagram, or by tweeting a shout out on Twitter. Many small businesses have a referral program that you can take advantage of, too. Ashlea Brooke Photography does! Message me for details!
