Is your community a thriving hub of activity full of local businesses supporting the local economy? Do you even know where and what your local businesses are? Are you a small business owner working hard to be seen?
We are all part of a community in some shape or form. Whether we live in a city, town or village, we are part of a community of people who access local services on some level. But in our very busy, fast paced modern world how much do we actually know about our local community? In particular, how well do we know the local businesses that operate within our local area?
It might be easy to spot those local businesses that operate from a physical place such as a shop or salon. And it would be so easy to think that that is all there is in your community. But don’t be fooled; there is much more going on beneath the surface. With self-employment and start-ups being at an all-time high, local services and businesses are on the rise.
In 2016, start-ups rose to 660,000, which is up from the 608,000 in 2015. In fact, among all countries in Europe, the UK has shown the biggest rise in start-ups between 2013-2017 at a rate of 5.03%. Whether you’re an established business or start-up, the challenge is to remain visible.
So, what do you do if you are a local business who is striving to be seen? How do you even begin to get noticed in the crowd? Ahh, you might think - that’s where the local circulars and magazine advertising can help. Firstly, I don’t know many people who have time to read the monthly circulars or magazines. Usually, they are left in some disused corner of the house, where they can forget they exist. But, why go to a magazine or circular when they could just download information at the touch of a button, or in this case an App?
