how to support your friend's small business

It seems like 2020/2021 is the year of many small businesses being born and personally I love seeing people creating something from their passions!

Entrepreneurship is definitely not easy and can be a lonely journey for some..myself included so I thought I would make a post on HOW you can support your friends’ small biz!

Keep reading :)

1. Follow, like and comment

Engage with us! It really makes our day when the content we put in so much work gets the attention it deserves!

2. Share or repost our content

It literally takes 10 seconds :) It will make your friend's day and might help broaden their exposure!

3. Refer us to your friends

To be honest, starting out it is extremely tough to grow clientele, why not help out your friend and share the news with others? Word-of-mouth is powerful and can help out in big ways

4. Pay FULL price

This is self-explanatory, but as a friend you should be respecting all the work that goes into your friend's small business, which includes respecting their pricing!!

5. Sign up for our email list

Why wouldn’t you wanna be the first to know any news about your friend’s biz????

6. Give us a shout out

This helps us grow and widen our exposure, it really means a lot to us!

7. Buy a gift card for later

Many small businesses are being forced to close right now/recovering from lockdown, so why not shop local if you can? This is great gift idea as opposed to buying something from a big-box retailer that your recipient would probably only use once and toss it away in the corner. It’s a win-win situation, you’re supporting someone’s dream by shopping small and local AND you get something in return!

8. Check in with us

Entrepreneurship and having your own business in not an easy journey. It can be mentally taxing, draining and lonely. Check in with your small biz friend from time to time to see how they’re doing!

9. Don’t ask for discounts

Don’t do it, it’s just outright disrespectful and rude. Trust me.
