Shopping small should be more than just one day a year.
When you buy from a small business, you’re supporting dreams. Think of that! Your singular purchase lifts their spirits, gives them that little boost they needed, and helps reinforce their drive to keep going.
What does it take to start your own business?
A vision, a goal, a passion, and a great deal of courage. Oh, and money.
What does it take to keep that business going?
Belief, trust, drive, and more than your average amount of tenacity. And yes, more money.
How You Can Help
- It’s so easy – just tell a friend! There’s usually not a great deal of money available for advertising, so word of mouth is vital to the growth of a small business. Promote the ones you believe in on your social media accounts. Tag their business, use the hashtags #ShopSmallAllYearLong and #SupportADream, and say a little about why others should buy their handmade product.
- Leave a review. Sharing your thoughts on their product is just as vital as telling a friend.
- Like, comment, and share their posts. Are they having a sale or releasing a new product? Or is that post just so awesome, it has to be shared?
- And, of course, buy from them whenever you can.
