Building a Business Can Positively Impact Your Community 

Small businesses make big differences in their communities. In fact, small businesses have added millions of jobs to the economy while many national corporations have eliminated positions. Of course, their impact goes beyond job opportunities — small businesses influence neighborhood culture and become a staple of hometowns. 

However, launching a small business takes careful planning, especially if your goal is changing your city for the better. The following steps prepare you for the realities of running a company while balancing local giving. 

For your next digital marketing project, connect with Cymru Digital Marketing to scale your business!  

Find Your Niche 

Your first decision is what goods or services to sell. It’s essential to offer something the community needs, so do some research to find your niche. For example, if you want to open a restaurant, look at what’s missing from the neighborhood menu. There may be many fast food places but no options for health-conscious customers. 

Apply for Funding 

Every company needs capital to get off the ground. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources for small businesses: 

  • Grants 
  • Small business loans 
  • Entrepreneur programs 

You can also look for investors who agree to finance your enterprise for a percentage of business ownership.  

Set Up Your Website 

Even if you cater to local customers, you still need a website. While it’s possible to create your own with templates, you’ll save time by outsourcing to a professional web designer. The expert team at Cymru Digital Marketing can ensure your site is aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly, and fully functional. 

Maintain Cash Flow With Invoicing Software 

In any business, large or small, accurate invoicing is essential to maintaining cash flow and keeping track of what is owed to you. While billing by hand may be fine for a one-person operation, as soon as you start working with multiple clients or taking on employees, manual invoicing becomes time-consuming and error-prone. This is where invoicing software can save the day. Customer invoicing software automates the billing process, making it faster and easier to generate accurate invoices. You’ll also be able to add a button to invoices that allow customers to pay online.  

Advertise Locally 

Local advertisements get local customers. To bring in the crowds, focus your marketing with the following strategies: 

Partner With Local Entrepreneurs 

Connecting to other local businesses is a great way to support your peers and offer more to the community. One of the best ways to do so is by joining municipal associations. These are usually organized by industry, allowing you to meet entrepreneurs with similar aspirations and challenges. 

Support Community Charities 

Local shops are uniquely positioned to work with charities within the community. You can do so by donating directly, hosting campaigns that donate a portion of sales, and even volunteering time, space, and labor. 

Tap Into Local Talent 

As a local business, you can create opportunities for the talent in your neighborhood. When looking to expand your workforce or hire a contractor, look nearby. A great place to start is universities and trade schools. Reaching out to new graduates and trainees keeps resources in the community. 

Running a small business takes determination and a clear vision of the future, but it’s also incredibly fulfilling, especially when you contribute to your community. With the right approach, your enterprise and neighborhood can flourish.

Why Settle For Second Best (Twitter) When You Can Have Likes.com?

Elon Musk is in the news because he wants to acquire “Twitter.com”.

OK I get it, he wants his own social media platform that he can control, but what if there was an easier way and he had something everyone is doing for the most part and that is getting likes to social media posts. Imagine having a domain name called www.likes.com

With the right people to build a platform, Elon would own a social media app that could potentially blow everyone else out of the water, it is not exactly rocket science.

Having a team dedicated to the platform, from website designers and app developers to digital marketers and social media influencers will be quicker to launch than building a colony on Mars. He would have to employ a special ops department specifically for the project. This project would be bigger than anything he could imagine and he would have to have offices in multiple regions. This would need planning from who would build the platform to the staff that would have to run it on a daily basis. This would create jobs in multiple countries.

If I were in Elon’s shoes I would build something Grander than Twitter or Meta/Facebook and let the other social media platforms hurtle into cyberspace.

With all the money he is expected to pay to get control of ‘Twitter’ I would save him the money and the trouble and get him to build something himself, rather than squabble over ownership of a platform I personally very rarely use @ukdomainbrokers, although Elon @elonmusk is pretty active on there.
