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:

1. Shop local and/or small businesses online

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.

2. Like a page, Like a post

One of the easiest ways to support a small business online is to like (follow) their business page on social media sites and apps like Facebook or Instagram. If the business posts something you like or enjoy, give them a thumbs up and let them know!

3. Leave a comment

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!

4. Tell your friends

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!

Were you impressed by the service you received or had a good experience? Write a positive review!

Many small businesses depend on reviews to grow their customer base. Use platforms such as Google, Yelp, or BBB to write a review or leave a review on a business’s Facebook page.
