Dirk Kettlewell knows how beneficial it is for small business owners to volunteer in their communities. Not only will it help the community, but it has the potential to equally help the business. If you have considered volunteering, right now is a good time to start. Let’s face it, time is stretched thin, and finding the time to volunteer can be difficult. But if you are looking for a new way to market yourself in the community, volunteering is where it’s at. When a small business is active in community service programs, it can be a great way to enhance your business profile, establish important professional relationships and gain new customers. All the while, you are helping the strengthening of your community. It is also an opportunity for you as a business owner to show your leadership skills in the community. Being recognized by community leaders and your local media as a committed volunteer and service leader helps build your brand and is a great way to raise your business’ visibility to potential customers. Be sure that when choosing organizations to work with that they are in line with your business as well as the products and services you offer.
