We love ’em, we know them, we are them.
So today I’d like to give some examples on how you can support your blogger friends or family members.
Retweet or Share their content
Giving others the opportunity to see their content – whether it’s free or you can buy – can help more than you may think. It could help people discover stores they may have, or find new content to read.
I have an account with ko-fi. This allows people to – should they wish – donate £3, which is about the price of a coffee. This is, however, completely optional, and should be done if you really like the content.
Read their work
There’s nothing better than reading a bloggers blog post. They’ll get to see that people are viewing their site and reading their work.
Use their affiliate links and discount codes
If you’re buying something and your blogger pal happens to have an affiliate link or discount code, use it. You’ll either save some money or just have a small extra step. But you could help out your blogger pal in the process.
You get what you want, they get a small reward in return. Win, win.
Purchase from their stores
This is completely optional. Only purchase if you like what they have to offer, and if you’ll use it. If you don’t, but still want to support the small business, share the store.
Bloggers, freelancers, small businesses, anyone who creates, can and will appreciate any thoughtful gesture you do to show you support what they do. Even if that is simply sharing their content, or mentioning to people you know that they’re doing what they’re doing.
Let’s focus on lifting up each other, helping business and bloggers, friends and family.
Until next time,
