Today is #givingtuesday. If you haven’t heard about it, you can find complete details about it here – http://www.givingtuesday.org/ I love to give back, I also think it is important, especially with a local business that you give back to the community. We want the community to think of you whenever they hear about someone that is having trouble with a subject you tutor. With local businesses it works really well, but it also works for online businesses if you tutor students around the globe (everyone loves a good story). I’ve included some ways that you can give back, these are just examples.
- Help the local schools that provide you with tutor students. I’ve mentioned it before, but be involved, subscribe to their school papers, go to their sports events, etc. When my daughter was in high school, we helped out frequently with the soccer team.
- Make sure that you join the facebook pages for schools, local organizations and civic groups in your town (area where you tutor).
- When you’ve been in business for awhile, consider sponsoring something. It doesn’t have to be really expensive and many times can be done for around $100.00.
- Use your website and Facebook pages for good. A good example, we had some major flooding in a community next to where we live a few years ago. On one of our local websites we made a bulletin board of sorts so that people could know what people needed. As those needs changed, we updated our page.
Do you have any ideas – leave yours in the comments below. We hope you have a wonderful day and we’ll see you on Thursday.
