Today’s Tip – There is more going on than a basic mom & pop shop down the road. This is a great opportunity for you to open up more avenues to get your “product” out there. Work with these businesses and not against them. Help them out and you’ll see a strong welcoming hand open up right back at you. They care an avenue to help promote both your product (you) and their own brand. Let them know you are out there. Go in to these wonderful mom and pop stores to bring them business through ordering and buying there yourself.
Telling people about these places helps you spread the word. “So and so told me about you guys!”… the favor will be returned on your turnaround with that company. When it is time to use their window reality for advertising an event, or a product. If you are trying to raise money, they might let you keep stuff in the store, or even use their store front to bring awareness. This all comes from working “with” companies. If we bring life to mom and pop shops than much will happen for our communities.
That word “With” keeps coming up. That’s right, you want to be working “WITH”, talking “WITH” to finally get to a place where you are working “WITH” everyone in the business of life. Mom and pop shops, if you don’t know what they are, are backbones to this world. They are people trying to make a business grow with little to no capital/start up money. All our money get’s filter through these small business as we see a lot of them close down. They are very much willing to work “WITH” people to help bring awareness to their company as much as you are trying to bring awareness to you!
