Generosity Strategies and Technology for Business
‘Tis the season to be generous and give gifts.
Oftentimes, it is not the gift itself that holds the greatest value, but the act of giving that carries the most influence.
Humans are designed to be in a community with one another. Generously sharing time, thoughts, talents, and gifts with each other comes naturally for most people.
Business owners can use generosity as a business strategy to attract and retain clients. It is a strategy that doesn’t have to have a monetary cost associated with it, but it can bring about a great reward when managed properly.
In 2021, 75% of consumers demand that a company they shop with give back in some charitable way.
Some small business owners express concern that if they give away too much of their knowledge or content for free that they won’t make any money because people won’t need to hire them.
On the contrary, there is a remarkable amount of evidence that proves generosity leads to profits. Here is an article from Inc. Magazine titled: Why Generosity is Smart for Making Profits.
Tech With Heart host, Michelle Calloway interviewed 5 small business owners to learn about generosity strategies they have in place, how effective they are, and what technologies they use to implement the strategies.
