Ways to support Small Art & Craft Businesses

We are not alone in this pandemic and will not want to be alone suffering the effects that this pandemic has engulfed the world with.  Businesses scale down or shut down (notably with the small businesses) and many others have pay cut or lost their jobs.   

 Our friends at iTreatz have come together to support small art & craft businesses, and we are always finding ways to support this community.  The list below are just a few to start with.

 

 1. Buy from them as a treat for yourself
Are you juggling with multi-tasks while working from home?  Support the small businesses by purchasing an item uniquely handcrafted for yourself.    

2. Send a note with encouraging words
We know that words are powerful on how they can influence someone into deep thoughts.   Let’s choose to use them constructively with words of encouragement to boost the self-esteem of these small business owners so that they can carry on with life during these hard times.

 5. Join their email list
Marketing emails can be quite a nuisance when they are flooding your mailbox.  While I would give these small businesses the opportunity to grow their clientele, express their gratitude through new posts and keep them moving forward. 

 6. Buy from them as gifts for your friends
Surprise your loved ones and friends with these handicrafts.   By purchasing from these small craft businesses and have them delivered directly to your loved ones and friends with a note attached.

 7. Share positive review on their products 

 Again, words are so powerful that they can bring in more clients or totally crush the business.  Let’s play our part by putting positive reviews on their product and communicate individually with the seller if the products require further improvement. 


There are many other ways you can do to help and support these small businesses, and we are more than happy to hear from you via email.
