HELPING SMALL BUSINESSES IS OUR MISSION!
STEP UP-REFERRAL WAS CREATED TO NURTURE AN ENVIRONMENT FOR PEOPLE TO STEP UP AND REFER POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS TO LOCAL BUSINESSES IN THEIR COMMUNITY. HELPING A NEIGHBOR AND VITALIZING THE COMMUNITY.
America is built on dreams, the dreams of people who turn their visions, with hard work, into reality by starting a new business. All businesses, regardless of their focus, have several things in common. They start out small and grow in size, becoming successful. This can only be accomplished with the help of the people and communities that support, encourage, and refer customers to them. People realize by helping and supporting small businesses, it not only helps individuals to fulfill their dreams but also strengthens the communities of the small towns and cities, informing people of products and services they could count on and trust. This creates jobs and has a positive effect on the economy. The trickle up effect is the backbone that built this great country of the United States into the most successful country in the world.
Small business owners work hard to become successful, and most pay their employees over the minimum wage. They are also known to treat their employees like a family.
Unfortunately, many small businesses, both new and established are suffering. There are several causes, the economy, clients failing to pay their bills, health issues and more.
Also many small businesses, family-owned businesses do not have a budget large enough to include advertising.
Your community has businesses that need your help. They want to keep their dreams and your community alive, by keeping their doors open, employing people, and providing products and services.
Step-Up Referral is asking you to help. You can assist in many ways. All it takes is a very small effort on your part!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
First, read about the business, see what challenges they are facing. They need referrals, but they also may need to hire employees.
Next, keep them in mind when you need their product or service, give them your business. Tell your friends and family about the business so they can help. Spread the word! Forward the information via email, social media and any other many tools we now have at our disposal.
If you know a small business owner who is struggling, please tell them about our site! Let them know they can fill out an application and take advantage of this increased exposure. There is NO CHARGE to them for this service! And it costs you nothing to help, just a little of your time.
Here at Step-Up Referral, we love and promote the “Pay it Forward” way of life! Will you pay it forward with us?
