Do you believe in supporting small businesses and handmade cannabis products?
Where you spend your dollars this holiday season has a big impact.
The livelihoods of small cannabis businesses depend on your support. In fact, without you, we cannot survive.
Supporting a small business means not only are you normally getting a higher-quality product and better experience, you’re also supporting a community.
When you purchase from an independent business, you are investing in someone’s livelihood. You’re also making a social impact by shopping small.
As a consumer, you have the power to keep small businesses alive. Here’s how you can support bespoke cannabis products this holiday season. What are Bespoke Cannabis Products?
Technically, a bespoke product is an individually crafted or custom created product or service. In simple terms, bespoke is something made to order. Instead of a generic, and let’s be honest boring, one size fits all approach, bespoke provides a totally custom experience. It’s a product tailored to your needs.
Bespoke cannabis products come in all ranges and sizes. From glassware, edibles, to custom stash boxes, the variety of bespoke products you can find on the market today is astonishing. It is an exciting time for consumers and entrepreneurs! Bespoke products offer an unparalleled level of quality and craftsmanship.1.) Use Your Purchasing Power
A business will not last without customers. No matter how much someone believes in a business, without the financial support, it will eventually fall apart. The number one way you can support bespoke cannabis products is by using your purchasing power. Every time you buy a product or service, you are casting a vote. When you make the choice to support a handmade product or small business, the impact is enormous. A single purchase may not seem like much but it can make a big difference in someone’s life. Not to mention you’ll probably end up with a better experience and product. If you want to keep bespoke cannabis brands alive, support independent businesses when shopping for gifts this holiday. 2.) Tell Friends or Family Members
Next to purchasing power, word of mouth is huge for bespoke businesses. After all, we trust our friends and family. When someone we care about tells us they recommend something, we’re more likely to take it seriously, especially in the cannabis space. Cannabis was an underground movement before it was an industry. People learned about new products from friends, not advertisements. In a world where advertising is still strictly prohibited, word of mouth rules. If there is a cannabis product you truly love, tell people about it! Not only will more people be able to enjoy it, you’ll also help support someone’s dream. Many small business owners in this industry are passionate cannabis advocates, patients, and enthusiasts. Sharing products with your friends and family helps these businesses thrive.3.) Leave Product Reviews or Testimonials
Product reviews have a big impact on how people view a business. Positive feedback is likely to lead to more repeat business and new customers, while negative feedback is likely to do the opposite. Leaving an honest review helps small cannabis businesses grow. Many companies, especially bespoke brands, will normally feature a place on their website to leave feedback. However, you should also check other sources likes Facebook, Yelp, or Google. Depending on your preference, you could leave a written review or even a video testimonial. In an ever increasingly competitive marketplace, your review will have a significant effect on a business’s future. 4.) Share Posts on Social Media
Love that edible you just tried? Share it on Facebook. Obsessed with your new handcrafted rolling tray? Post a photo on Instagram. Excited about a new piece you ordered? Tweet about it. Sharing your authentic product experiences is a simple but powerful way to keep small cannabis businesses afloat. However, you don’t have to take a photo or share a video to support your favorite bespoke cannabis brands. Even something as simple as interacting with a post you see on a social media page can bring a serious boost to business. The more you interact with a brand, the more exposure they’ll receive. This impact is massive in the cannabis space. Bespoke products are often completely self-funded and operated. Your support, no matter how minor it seems, makes a real difference.5.) Plan an Event to Increase Exposure
Spread the word by teaming up and planning an event to support small cannabis businesses. This could be something you host in your local community. For example, you could plan a concert and invite local businesses to promote their products and services at the event. Or, you could host a cannabis professional networking gathering and invite business owners and newcomers to attend. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to physical opportunities. Why not create an online event? Whether you’re a fellow cannabis business owner or consumer, events are a great way to team up and help spread the buzz. So get creative and don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Keep in mind you will need to follow all local and national laws. But don’t let this discourage you. Your support influences the entire cannabis community. Get involved and make a real impact this holiday season. Did you know all of our products at Diskreshen are made totally from scratch?
