I’m getting really fed up with the way people respond on FACEBOOK. I know I shouldn’t be upset about this – but there are a bazillion people on here, who have asked me to support their business interests, and I generally support, promote, and drive traffic. One lady has been sharing her business, trying to just “get a leg up to start” – people don’t even have to buy to get her started, just like, join the events, and share – or invite friends. Nope. Nothing. And she’s struggling to keep up the effort, because of the lack of participation. She’s struggling because nobody has even attended – one of those being mine. I’ve sold product off the site, but attendance – NOTHING. I can’t count the number of people I’ve SHOWN UP FOR, and participated for, or promoted the heck out of to help them get started.
When young people start a new business, without the background to bring in new buyers, clients, and promotion, do we ignore them? WHY? Why don’t we jump in and support their efforts, drive traffic, join – and even ATTEND their events – and promote them to our networks? Would that be so difficult? Would their new business maybe be a boost to the economy? How about a boost to the moral of business owners, to have another business owner in our midst? Perhaps the new business owner might even jump into our groups and networks and participate with the process of buying from and supporting other businesses?
Instead of ignoring a new business when you see one, how about you promote the new business, maybe ask the business owner if you can participate somehow? How about you get involved in their active business events, and invite someone in your network to join – who may have an interest in what the new business sells? You buy gifts, right? Purchase a product to give away.
We can be a big help in getting these small businesses off the ground and running at a profit without spending a lot of time, if we all get involved and do a little something! Get involved. Attend an event and let’s make these new small businesses successful!
