I was really pleased with the ideas and suggestions that all of you gave for the Newburgh business scene survey. It definitely got people thinking, and I have noticed an increase in traffic for those particular results. While speaking to a local business, the owner told me that suggestions are highly needed to know what you are doing wrong. They already know what they are doing right if they keep you coming to their shop, but what are they doing wrong? Do they need more variety? Change of decor or ambiance? More internet presence? More signs? Longer hours? As long as you aren’t attacking them personally, a suggestion is welcome advice.
So, something we mentioned in the survey was contacting your local businesses and letting them know what they could do to get more of your business. I suggested that you could look up their web pages and email them your suggestions. You could also mail them. But, after running this blog for a while, I have come to see a lot of you are shy, and love anything anonymous. With that said, here’s an opportunity to give your 2¢ anonymously. Below in the comment section of this post, pick “Anonymous” and share your suggestions for your local Newburgh shop. After a while I’ll compile them together and contact the owners with all of your suggestions. Nobody has to know who you are. So if you want to support Newburgh businesses but can’t because they are missing the mark on a few things, share your suggestions! Let’s just hope they don’t shoot the messenger! ?
