Happy Women’s History Month! The month of March is certainly something to celebrate for women but in order for us to get to where we are now, we had to support one another. Grow together, learn together, connect each other. We had to support one another’s, endeavors, ideas, and businesses. Not sure how to show your support? Here are 4 ways to show your support for fellow businesswomen without spending a dime.

Share Social Media Posts
The easiest support of all (and perhaps one of the best) is to share a post. This is a great way for your friend or family member to see you supporting them, plus it expands their reach, which is an even greater benefit because you never know who is going to see it that is not already in her circle. Sharing a post on social media is a no-brainer and costs 0 dollars.
Subscribe to Their Business Blog or YouTube Channel
This is another way to support without any type of financial burden. Presence and numbers matter in the world of Blogs, Podcasts, and YouTube. You can subscribe and/or follow these pages/channels without having to obligate your time to watch and reading every post. Whether you engage with any posts or not, at least you still count as a subscriber and that’s a great support in and of itself. But Brownie points if you like, comment, and share!
A Simple Comment
Back to the comments. Ok, so when it comes to social media, engagement is king. Some businesses thrive on engagement to grow. A comment on a post or two could really help a businesswoman who is a social media influencer or blogger, increase their engagement to possibly qualify for other influencer programs. Or actually get paid for all the content she is providing you. Yes, it’s hard work! Again, this is another way to back their business without having to open your wallet.
Word of Mouth
Word of mouth will ALWAYS be one of the best ways to share the news of a business. Not only is it the best way of getting the word out but how often have you taken a recommendation to a restaurant, nail salon, etc., simply based on someone else’s word? This type of support generates a buzz and that is a priceless way of showing support.
Support at Its Best
Following all of the tips above will make the businesswomen in your life feel like they have the support of an army behind them. It doesn’t cost you a dime to share, like, comment, or recommend. And your support will not go unnoticed.
