“When you buy from a small business, you are supporting a dream.”

When you make the choice to buy from a business you are helping a real person to live their dream and their passion. Money is tight for everyone at the moment and small businesses are amongst those who are really going to take that hit, so I’ve put together some ideas for how you can support small business you like:

 

 

  • The most obvious thing would be to buy their products or services, even small purchases are appreciated.
  • If you do buy from them, don’t forget to leave a positive review to help potential future customers.
  • Respect their prices, they’re just trying to make a living!
  • Be patient, they’re often one person operations working as fast as they can!

 

 

If you can’t afford to buy from small businesses right now that’s fine too, there are loads of other ways you can help:

  • Sign up to their newsletter/emails
  • Interact with their social media content, follow, like, share, comment.
  • Recommend them on social media, forums and to real life people!
  • Give them a shoutout on your social media.
  • Tag them in opportunities you think they might be interested in.
  • Cheer them on!
