In honor of National Women’s Small Business Month, Walker’s Legacy has created a list of the top 3 ways to uplift and engage the small women-owned businesses in your community.
Shop With Women-Owned Businesses
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the economy of the United States. Specifically, small women-owned businesses have been struggling to make ends meet due to mandatory closings to help flatten the curve of COVID-19. The most impactful way to help is to make a purchase at your favorite small woman-owned business.
Mentor An Aspiring Woman Entrepreneur
There have probably been countless times where you have leaned on someone you trust for assistance, the business world is no different. Mentors are people who have experience in your field and can help guide, direct, or shape your present situation and opportunities for the better. Unfortunately, due to the disproportionate representation of women in business aspiring women entrepreneurs often have a hard time finding mentors. Pass it forward and mentor an aspiring woman entrepreneur today.
Leave Positive Reviews and Share Your Experience
People often find new businesses based on word of mouth and positive reviews. Leaving positive reviews after your experiences helps the business gain new customers, especially when future business picks up again after COVID-19. After writing a review, it’s equally as important to share that review via social media or with friends or family. People are more likely to try a business that is recommended to them by friends and family.
Show up this October for small women-owned businesses. Stay tuned for more information and resources for women-owned businesses throughout the month.
