Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) —The pandemic was especially serious for small businesses.
Prior to small businesses next Saturday, the Nashville Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum to discuss ways to encourage the community to make small purchases.
Yuri Kunza, president and chief executive officer of the Nashville Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, wants people to make small purchases.
According to American Express, 62% of US SMEs need to ensure that sales will return to the same rate as before the pandemic by the end of the year in order to continue their business.
Cunza encourages small businesses to leverage social media to gain greater reach.
“There are statistics showing that only 64% of small businesses have a website. For example, during a pandemic where we can’t always trade directly, we need to do better,” Cunza said. Stated.
Being creative during this time also helps.
“If you have a brick and mortar site, put something on the sidewalk. Use that sidewalk marketing to attract people,” said Walter Perry, a former SBA district director.
For every dollar spent on a small business, about 67 cents stay in the community.
Kunza says this means making a small purchase-you can help your neighbors keep their doors open.
“There are an estimated 4.7 million Hispanic companies across the country and in Nashville, with an estimated 1500 Hispanic companies,” said Cunza.
What is a rebound?
Middle Tennessee is working to recover from the effects of the coronavirus and we would like to help. Whether you’re returning to work, achieving your goals at this uncertain time, or managing pressure, we’re working to find a solution. In addition, I would like to talk about the hopes, inspiration, and creativity of central Tennessee when it began to rebound.
