Supporting Local Businesses In Whitehorse During COVID-19
If you’re a business owner located in the City of Whitehorse, I’d love you to join a Facebook Group that I’ve just set up to help support local business during the COVID-19 crisis.
The goal of the group is to enable local business owners such as yourself to share information with each other, refer business to each other, encourage the community to support local businesses, and generally help each other in any way we can through what will probably be a very challenging next few months.
I’m also hoping to bring some value to the group with my skills as a marketing professional, including creating some opportunities for local businesses like yours to promote themselves and hopefully get some additional revenue in the short term, because that’s what I do and how I feel I can best help.
If this sounds like something you would like to be part of, please click the button below to join the group.
To be clear, I’m not trying to sell you anything.
The opportunities I offer in the group I’ll be offering for free, because it seems to me that this is a time to pitch in and support the community.
I will ask that if you join you also don’t just use it as an opportunity to try to promote your business to the group. I understand that business may be down and revenue may be desperately needed, but there are other much better places for promotion.
Instead, look for ways you can give, and take advantage of the benefits that others give. I’m convinced that if we all use this group the right way then the overall benefit will be much greater than if we spend our time pitching to each other.
I’m also not trying to upstage or replace any of the many business networking groups out there, who I’m sure are doing what they can in the current environment. This is not a general networking group, it is intended to be a temporary group dedicated solely and entirely to help support local businesses through the next few months.
