News and Resources for Harvey Community

Small business can make a big difference in a community by stimulating economic growth. It helps create jobs and fosters a diverse community. It also helps foster ideas and promotes tourism. It helps put a town on the map. Small businesses are the backbone of a community, providing vital goods and services. The work of Business Development Organizations (BDOs) is critical in the development of place-based small business ecosystems. In particular, they help create more equal environments for small businesses, especially in under-invested neighborhoods. Ultimately, federal resources for BDOs can lead to economic recovery for small businesses and increase shared prosperity in under-served communities.

A strong small business scene is a prerequisite for healthy communities. According to the Regions Foundation, a thriving small business ecosystem helps a neighborhood grow. Businesses working in collaboration with radio and help promote to listeners but also build strong relationships and vital networks. 

Another way small businesses and sponsors can contribute to a community is to provide space for community events. For example, a parking lot can be used for registration sites for a charity 5K. It can also be used for outdoor events. This is a great way to address a need in the community and attract crowds. Locals who attend the event will be more likely to patronize the business afterward.

Businesses can also sponsor school events. Often, businesses will sponsor sports teams, graduations, and other school events. Schools are always looking for ways to engage their students and community. They also welcome donations for community events. These donations don’t need to be large, but should be enough to be of use to the school.

While some small businesses don’t have the time to participate in extra projects, it’s worth taking the time to get involved. It will give you a sense of community belonging and may even inspire new ideas for your business. Not only that, it will allow you to network with other business owners in your community, as well as potential customers.

Small business also contribute to the local economy. By supporting local businesses, small businesses can promote product diversity and improve local autonomy. Whether you are a butcher, real estate agency, furniture movers or a local accountant, local businesses can contribute to the community and also provide better prices for community consumers. The best way to promote local businesses is by contacting your customers and joining the local community radio for sponsor kits and marketing inquiries to help promote to listeners.
