When choosing where to shop, most consumers look at price first, then location, with little thought given to the importance of supporting local business.
Local businesses provide advantages to the surrounding community that large retailers cannot offer such as customer service and specific product knowledge.
No one knows their own brand like a small business owner; you are the expert in your field.
Local Merchants have always been successful by knowing the nature of their local market; the only thing the internet has changed is that the local market could be hundreds even thousands of miles away.
What if you could share your skills, products and services with the whole world?
Running any business is all about starting a community. Any good business has repeat customers, whether it is friends, family or people in the neighborhood. If a business has a quality product or service they will get a local following of people willing to come back and even share their experiences with others. What if you could expand the size of your local community?
The internet lets you do just that. Having a website or social network can facilitate community connectivity on and offline for local businesses as well as assist with customer service, brand awareness, and customer loyalty.
By engaging your Internet community, you will increase Brand Awareness for your business. This can beneficially impact your business.
In a recent study, individuals who followed a particular brand stated that they were 67% more likely to buy and were 79% more likely to recommend a brand since becoming a part of a company’s online network.
Having an internet presence doesn’t change your local business model it enhances it.
The internet provides an opportunity for a local business to go global. The internet enables any entrepreneur to get a new business up and running more quickly and cheaply than ever before
Starting a website has drastically less overhead then opening another store location. (no rent, utilities, staff etc). Depending on the business, it can easily be run from anywhere, with the expense of running a website as the main cost.
