Fall in Love with Local!
I have been mulling this idea over in my head for a while and I thought today (our first snowfall day!) was the best day to start this campaign!
I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Do you own a local independently owned business and would you like to have more exposure?
Or maybe you have a friend who has a company they run out of their home and you want to give them a boost?
Well, here’s your chance!
I LOVE highlighting local businesses. I truly think our fellow entrepreneurs, neighbours, and the dreamers make our community a thriving and unique place to live.
Sometimes it can be a little hard for these businesses to advertise and get the word out without throwing copious amounts of cash into advertising. Let’s be real here, when this happens, it affects their bottom dollar and the chance for their kids to join the hockey team, or their ability to live as comfortably as they would like.
When you support local and small businesses, you help bolster our community as a whole. IMAGINE what our town would be like if those shops were to close, those independent restaurants or wineries and breweries never existed, we didn’t have a music school or a fitness club or contractors to build our homes or fix our plumbing. What a droll little place we would live in and what a struggle it would be for the rest of us to enjoy living here.
So, here’s the deal.
In the comments below this post on my Facebook Page (@redsirenwebmarketing), I want you to describe the business you want to highlight and post a link to either a social media page or website for that business.
👉🏻 The description must include: a local Hants County Business (please PM me if you are unsure if you should post) AND why you love that business or you chose to start it.
What happens next?
A few things are possible:
– AT LEAST once per month, I will choose a random business that is mentioned in the comments and will do a general post about them over on www.redsirenwebmarketing.com
– I may do an interview with the business owner which may be on video if they are willing
– I may do a live stream or recorded video from within that business to highlight everything they are doing to make our community a better place
– and a few other tricks up my sleeve…

The more we fall in love with our local businesses, the better and more robust our community gets.
