This is very easy to do, support local business by writing an online review. This creates connections for that business with your friends. It solidifies their reputation in the community. It reinforces their efforts to serve you well – because you are writing a public thank you for the effort. It also reduces the burden all of us small business owners are facing right now – we need to continue to market our business to get new business, but our priority has to be keeping our staff employed.
Your simple online review, short and sweet, provides the same impact / exposure as me paying for an ad – say $100, maybe more depending on your friend circle. That savings could be the difference this week to a small business owner that is worried about paying rent, utilities, payroll, insurance, and taxes. Your effort to lift up locally owned business is huge right now as businesses are fighting to survive.
Do a huge service to your community, write an online review for every locally owned business you want to see survive!
