Want to put a smile on someone’s face this World Smile Day? It’s time to support a local business!

One small act of kindness from you could make the world of difference to a struggling small business. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve put together some top tips to get you started.

Stay local

If you’re looking for something to eat, try somewhere local first, such as The Golden Duck or The Social Space, before resorting to a well-known chain. A lot of local businesses offer delivery, too, so check that out if you don’t fancy venturing outside!

Go direct

Got the urge to go shopping? Whether it’s a new perfume or a personalised leather notebook that catches your eye, buying from local brands such as Sifr Aromatics and Bynd Artisan is the way to go. Purchasing directly from local businesses rather than through a third-party site means your money goes straight to those who need it.

Leave reviews

If a local business has served you well, let them - and everyone else - know about it. Yes, leaving a positive review is invaluable to smaller businesses. You don’t need to write a lot - just enough to share your next-level experience and encourage others to try the brand for themselves.

Share their content

If you don’t have much spare cash lying around at the moment, don’t worry - you can still support your favourite local businesses by giving them a shout out on social media. Sharing their posts and tagging any friends you think might be interested will help small brands reach a much wider audience. And it won’t cost you a thing!
