Help the High Street more than ever

I’m so worried about the future of all our local businesses, small high street shops being forced to close in what should be their busiest time of year! Nightmare doesn’t come close to describing what these business owners are experiencing right now!
But is there something we can do to help?

Have you noticed Google’s recent push on TV to help small businesses now more than ever before?

As a consumer, there’s one thing you can do to help our high streets, you can go to the Google business page of your favourite local business and give them a review, 5 stars of course! Google reviews really make a difference to a business. It’s a huge element of Googles SEO rankings therefore getting that business listing optimised when people search on Google. It also gives that all important social proof and thirdly helps businesses know what they are doing right and even maybe where they can improve! You don’t even need a gmail or Google account to leave a review either! It takes seconds!!
