Business owners have undoubtedly struggled over the last couple of years. COVID-19 has presented unique obstacles that seemed almost insurmountable. These moments have reminded everyone that community is critical during good times and bad. As such, it is important that business owners constantly look for ways to engage with their community. In doing so, they are able to withstand difficult times by interacting with past customers and attracting new ones.

The following are some important tips for small business owners to keep in mind when it comes to engaging with their local community:

  • Establish a referral program that encourages current customers to reach out to their networks to bring in new prospects
  • Promote a loyalty system where customers are offered incentives for repeat purchases
  • Consider throwing an in-store celebration for your most loyal customers
  • Partner with a likeminded business in the local community and host an event that cross-promotes both companies
  • Choose a charity that represents your company’s values and sponsor an event
  • Be proactive on social media – respond to praise with appreciation and make sure to address any complains head-on
