Whether your friend has a small, local business or you have discovered a wonderful local business online or in your community, lets show them some love!
Here are a few ways you can support local businesses, which are completely FREE!
1. LIKE, COMMENT AND SHARE POSTS
Most businesses are on social media as it's a great way to get their brand noticed, share products with you, and for keeping you up to date with their latest news and behind the scenes action.
By simply engaging with their post by liking, commenting and sharing content, you will be supporting them by getting their business in front of more people.
2. RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY
One of the best ways to show your support is through word of mouth - and Northland is great for this! Talking about a local business, and recommending them to friends and family will help them get new customers and hopefully get more people to spread the word.
3. WRITE A POSITIVE REVIEW
Reviews are so helpful for a business as this shows their brand as a trusted place to buy from, helping others make the decision to purchase their product or service.
You may be able to write a review on their website, Facebook page or Google to tell them your thoughts on their services/products, which they can then share across their platforms.
4. SEND THEM A PERSONAL MESSAGE
Often smaller businesses are only one person or a small team of people, so a personal message can make someone's day! Drop them a personal message over email or on social media to let them know how much you love their business and why.
Not only will this put a smile on their face, it will be the motivation and encouragement they might need to keep going.
LOVING LOCAL, LOVING NORTHLAND !!!
We love these Northland businesses...
