4 Easy Ways Shop Small W/O Spending a Dime
Is money tight? Do you want to help a small business out but can't afford to spend any cash right now? In celebration of Small Business Saturday, here are 4 ways that you can help support us without spending a dime. PLUS, this takes less than 5 minutes!
OPTION 1: REVIEW US ON YELP (click here) and FACEBOOK (click here)
The honest truth is that most people love stores, but rarely take time to write a review (unless they are bad). For a store that has been around 31 years, we have 12 reviews on Yelp. Help us get another one!
At a small business, your reviews matter. Your words help get us on the map and since advertising budgets are small, you help us pop up in searches on Google and Yelp. Most magazines only pay attention to stats and if your store is amazing, but your online presence is small, you probably won't make it into the magazine of your dreams.
Take the time to leave a rating and if you are an over achiever, leave a quick note to show some love. Your words inspire us. Tell us one of your memories or favorite things about the shop and we will get all warm and fuzzy inside!
OPTION 2: VOTE FOR US ( click here )
This is where you can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE and win possibly win a 2 day resort getaway to the Gaylord National Resort!
