9. Recommend small businesses to others.
Word of mouth is one of the most powerful sources of income for a business. In fact, 92% of people say they trust recommendation from friends more than advertising.
You’ve probably had a friend, neighbor, or coworker ask for a recommendation. The next time someone asks you if you can recommend a good place to get lunch or a place to board their dog, think of small businesses you have used or heard good things about. Sending new business to their shop is one of the best things you can do to help support them.
10. Get acquainted with small businesses in your area.
Getting to know the various small businesses in your area is another great way to support them. Chances are, for every big box or chain business near you, there's a small business (or two or three!) that offers the exact same product or service.
Even if you don't make a purchase, visiting local small businesses can be helpful, too. Even better? Bring a friend along. Not only does it drive traffic to their store, but it lets you see what they have to offer. When you are ready to make a purchase, you'll already know what type of merchandise they have to offer.
