Since starting my own small online business and now venturing into another one I understand only too well how hard it is to encourage buyers to shop with you if you are a small independent. Even more so if you are an online store. You may remember my comments on twitter last year when Miss Portas aired her tv programmes supporting Charity shops and failing retailers, I tweeted her requesting she might like to take a look at small independent online retailers (I didn't get an answer), so I will be following her progress with interest.
Not one for sitting back, I thought this would be an ideal time to start a campaign to support all those hard working small businesses, often run by mothers juggling many balls in an effort to contribute to the family income and take care of children at the same time.
So if you are an online store pop your link below and grab my button for your blog or shop page. Lets make some noise on Twitter and Facebook and see if we can't encourage those shoppers to spend some of their hard earned cash with us.
Lets show people all the wonderful, imaginative, well made, stylish and individual products that are out there, if only people take the time to look. Don't follow the crowd.
BE AN INDIVIDUAL, SHOP INDEPENDENT RETAILERS
