“A small group of thoughtful people could change the world” ~ Margaret Mead
Have you thought about joining local Facebook groups? If you’re running the type of business that serves the local area, community groups can be a wonderful way of sharing news, offering your services, and just connecting with new people.
Remember the golden rules – give as much as you take; if you can’t help a potential customer but know someone who can why not give them a recommendation? And always, ALWAYS abide by the admin rules on advertising; there is nothing worse than a business being kicked out of a group because they’re spamming the members!
When times are difficult, being involved in the local community can really be effective!
