I've been in the photography business for quite some time and if I've learned anything over the years, it's that our industry is filled with smart, dedicated and passionate entrepreneurs. Many of us know, first hand, how hard this pandemic has been on small businesses. If you're like me, I just want to do my part to lend a helping hand wherever I can so I had an idea! What if we start an "adopt a business" campaign?!
Find a local business in your area and "adopt" them. Order curbside pick-up (or delivery) from your adopted business and photograph the product/meal and post about it on social media, offer to create a poster to put in their storefront that let's customers know how to place an order, if it's safe to do so, take a photo of their storefront and share the image on social media...there are so many ways we can promote our fellow small business owners! Then, encourage other creatives in your community to do the same!
What a great way to show community pride!
The Adopt a Local Business Kit includes:
- 2- "Adopt a Business" social media squares
- 24x36 Customizable poster (can be scaled down if needed)
- A list of ideas for how you can show support for your adopted business
