Supporting Local Businesses
Ever wonder why it is so important to support local businesses? According to Mass.gov, “There are far-reaching advantages to deciding to ‘shop local’ By supporting local businesses, you are in turn supporting your local economy; significantly more money stays in a community when purchases are made at locally owned – rather than nationally owned – businesses. The U.S. Small Business Association and the U.S. Department of Labor report the positive impacts of small, independent business on local economies. Local businesses are more likely to utilize other local businesses such as banks, service providers, and farms.”
Reviews for Local Businesses
Purchasing services or products is not the only way to support a local business. Reviews on platforms such as Google and Facebook are extremely important for supporting local businesses like Bella Lei! They help the community get a first-hand glimpse into a business. It helps for others to hear from real, local people. Personal experience is obviously the best way to experience a business but having the ability to read about the services and products ahead of time is extremely helpful.
Unfortunately, the majority of people don’t leave a review at all unless they have had a negative experience with a business. Sadly, this only harms the business. We suggest taking the time to contact the manager or owner with concerns as a first step. That is a constructive way to make all local business thrive, which in turns makes the community a better place to live.
At Bella Lie, we love to hear and share your positive feedback across our social platforms as well. Your reviews mean more visibility to help us grow our family and they help us find wonderful supporters and new patients. Also, the team at Bella Lei wants to be an asset to the entire community as a local business.
