How To Support Your Local Businesses?

Updated: Apr 2

This too shall pass...



With the COVID-19 virus in full affect, a lot of us are quarantined in our houses and cannot go out very much. We are still looking for ways to continue our support for local businesses while being safe. We hope these 5 tips help you to support your favorite locals in this crazy time.



1. Buy Gift Certificates

Buying gift certificates are an easy and quick way of giving your local business some quick income. It's a promise that when things get better...and they will, that you are there to spend some money. A lot of companies have online gift certificates available, but even if you do it in person, you can limit the time spent in the store. Quick and easy way to support your favorite local business!

3. SUPPORTIVE PHONE CALL

Let your local business person know that you are thinking of them. Give them some reassuring words of support and that you will be back when this is all over. Everyone is handling the Coronavirus pandemic differently, but some kind words go a long way!


4. tIP TAKE-OUT/DELIVERIES

This seems obvious, but make sure you tip your delivery driver or when you take out food. That little bit of cash goes a long way (if you can tip cash!)


5. SPREAD THE WORD

Most people are quarantined to their houses during COVID-19 and so are on social media perhaps more now than ever. Social media is one of the strongest ways to support your local business. Share their posts on social so your friends see any important information. Leave a kind review on their pages and boost their rating. If you buy anything from them, take a photo and share it on social media. Any little bit of publicity during the Coronavirus pandemic on social media will go a long way.



Now more than ever, we need to support our small local businesses. The Coronavirus is here and could be one of the hardest tests we have as a small business. Show your support in whatever small way you can so we all make it out of this stronger than ever!!


Good luck and be safe!
