Not sure how you can support local small businesses, here's 3 ways!
1. Write a positive review
By doing this, you reassure others that their product or services are worth spending money on. You give their brand credibility.
2. Engage with them on social media
Social media is all about algorithms and the little 'gremlins' running it behind the scenes. By engaging with a small business you increase the number of eyes that their business is exposed to.
3. Buy from them
This is kind of obvious, but by you buying from your local small businesses, you're supporting families, and chances are they're in close distance to you, so (hopefully) the carbon footprint is smaller, and better for the environment - it's a win win. And don't forget everytime you buy from a small business, someone gets to do a happy dance💃🏽 big corporates don't do a happy dance when you buy from them! 😁
4. Don't forget to tip
And (more importantly) don't forget to tip them or their staff! A lot of hard work goes into running a small business, so the extra tip definitely goes a long way!
