May is Support Small Business Month

Small Business May is Support Small Business Month

By supporting local business, you are supporting your friends and neighbors who provide jobs, services and amenities for the community. 

Here are 3 ways you can support small businesses in our community this month!

Support with your dollar
The most direct way to help a local business is to show your support with your dollar. Don’t need anything in particular from that store at the moment? Buying a gift certificate is a great alternative because the business can show revenue in their books, and you have something to look forward to later - or spread the love and gift to a friend!

Write a positive review
This is a completely free way to show your love for local businesses. Hop on to Google, Yelp or Facebook and let them know what you like about them! It’ll raise their rating on various platforms, making their business look more inviting for prospective clients! 

Social shout-out
Another free way to engage with your favorite local businesses is to interact with their social media. Open up Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and find the business. An action as simple as tapping “like” or “share” can make a big difference in media engagement. The more you interact, the more others will see it on their page, which means more exposure to new clients for the business! 

So, how will you support local businesses this month?
