Go Local First!
Did you know that Australia has over 3.5million small businesses? These small businesses contributes to approximately 1/3 of Australia’s economic activity – employing millions of Australians. Almost half of our workforce is through the same small businesses. Now is the time to give back to your local community.
Arrant Accounting Solutions has supported many small businesses for over 20 years; and will continue to do so for many years to come. We recognise and appreciate all those people who have a dream and strive to achieve their goals. These small businesses are vital to our everyday lives.
Go Local First is a nationwide campaign being delivered by the Council of Small Business Organisations Australia (COSBOA). Go Local First aims to encourage Australians to choose local small businesses when they are purchasing products and services to help get the sector back on its feet, keep Australians in jobs, and money in local communities.
Aussie small businesses have taken a huge hit during the pandemic. Go Local First is about encouraging all Australians to back local businesses by choosing to spend with small businesses, both in store and online. When small business thrives, communities thrive, and Australia thrives.
The Go Local First campaign uses social media and online presence to advertise and drive business to local premises. This Government supported branding concept, complete with a downloadable toolkit has been created for small business to benefit from existing branding and advertising such as posters, website links, Facebook, and local directories. You can like, share, or personalise the content to suit your business. Get in on the trend of @golocalfirst (Instagram) and @localfirstAU (Facebook).
Stop and think before you do your next shop – especially online – and consider whether you can buy the same product from someone in Australia first!
