The Lockdown Review Loop!

Today marks UK Stress Awareness Day, a day which feels all the more important this year with the second lockdown beginning across England tomorrow. It has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone, and we don’t think anyone saw 2020 panning out the way it has. We feel honoured to have been asked to assist so many small and local businesses throughout the ongoing pandemic, and now we’ve put our thinking caps on to come up with an initiative to support small businesses that anyone can get involved with.

So, today we are launching the Lockdown Review Loop. The idea behind the loop is to not only support small businesses to win new customers but to also give business owners the boost they need to keep going. We’re asking you to take 5 minutes to leave some positive online reviews for your favourite businesses.

This Christmas we’re urging everyone to shop local and to support upcoming events, such as the Online Christmas Market run by Dales Business Women. You can also make the most of our local business networks such as Original Richmond Business and Tourism Network and Richmondshire Business Network, both of which are working hard to spread the word about what their members are offering their customers this Christmas.

However, we also understand that not everyone has the extra cash to go out and support as many small businesses as they would like to right now. The simple act of leaving a positive review for a business you love can be worth just as much to help spark new orders and enquiries. 

The plan behind the initiative is for participants to review 3 or more small businesses, and then ask those business owners to review others – thereby creating a chain of reviews. Customer recommendations and reviews help small businesses to rank higher within both Facebook and Google search, so taking just 5 minutes to show your support could ensure your favourite businesses secure some new customers.

To get involved with the Review Loop all you need to do is complete the following steps:

1.       Decide on 3 (or more!) small businesses you would like to support

2.       Track them down on Facebook or Google Reviews

3.       Leave some kind words of support

4.       At the end of your review add ‘Please continue the Review Loop by reviewing 3 of your favourite small businesses – see the Purple Creative Studio website for more information.’

We hope to see lots of you taking part - our team are going to be getting the ball rolling today and we hope to soon see our loop reaching far and wide, giving small business owners the support they may need right now!
