Local Businesses, Supporting Each Other

Welcome, local business owner!
My name is Tony Barrett, and I’m a fellow business owner, located in Forest Hill.
I’d like to invite you to join a Facebook Group that I’ve just set up to help support all of us during the COVID-19 crisis.
The goal of the group is to enable local business owners such as yourself to share information with each other, refer business to each other, encourage the community to support local businesses, and generally help each other in any way we can through what will probably be a very challenging next few months.
I’m also hoping to bring some value to the group with my skills as a local marketing professional, including creating some opportunities for local businesses like yours to promote themselves and hopefully get some additional revenue in the short term, because that’s what I do and how I feel I can best help.
To be clear, I’m not trying to sell you anything.
The promotional and other opportunities I offer in the group I’ll be offering free of charge, because it seems to me that this is a time to pitch in and support the community.
I’m also not trying to replace any of the many business networking groups out there, who I’m sure are doing what they can in the current environment.
This is not a general networking group, it is intended to be a temporary group dedicated solely and entirely to help support local businesses through the next few months.
If it sounds like something you would like to be part of, please click the button below this section to join the group. We’d love to have you!
I think that’s about it. I hope you can see what I’m trying to do, and I hope even more that you’re inspired to get involved and help your fellow local business owners to make it through the coming weeks and months.
If you have any questions about the group, please feel free to send me an email at enquiries@supportlocalwhitehorse.com.au
I look forward to seeing you in the group!
PS. One of my new initiatives to help local businesses is the website you’re on: Support Local Whitehorse.
I’ve created this site, along with its associated Facebook and Instagram pages, to help provide a platform for small businesses in the area let people know whether they’re still open, how they’re operating (for example, online only or delivery only), and how to contact them.
If you join our group you’ll get access to many more opportunities, information, advice and support, but to get started I’d strongly encourage you to click the button below and submit a listing.
As with the Facebook Group, it’s free, and a great way to start getting your message out there!
