Ah, where do I begin?
As a small business, we frequently ask for reviews, comments, likes and shares as well as your input in general. We need your advice and guidance to ensure we are providing you with what you’re looking for. Whether it’s a service, product or just advice, we want to do all we can to ensure you’re getting what you want.
So where does this sit with my small business?
I am my business. I try to put everything I can into the running of things and provide you with not only a service but advice, products and knowledge too. Once I have done your hair, whether it’s a simple trim or a complex colour, you need to know how to look after it and which products are needed to carry on achieving a particular style.
We also try and support other small businesses by sharing their pages, content and advising on who we would use. Over time, businesses gain trust and respect and can become easily identified with their strong brand and ethos.
So why am I, a hairdresser with a small business, writing a blog post on business and not hair?
Because I would love you to walk away after reading this blog, understanding what it’s like to run a small business from the background. The years it’s taken for people to know who we are, what we are and why we do what we do.
I would love you guys to remember, when you see businesses asking for a review or even a simple like and share of blog posts or websites, the impact that can have on a business.
Word of mouth is a fantastic form of free advertising and every small business appreciates every kind word, like, share or review.
So instead of seeing negative posts, I dare you to be the one who changes things. Who starts to create more positivity by saying “well done”, “thankyou” or even “great job”. Why not go one step further and recommend a business you’ve had a good service from to your friends and family?
Let’s see if we can spread more positivity and support for local businesses. Because at the moment, we really need it.
