With gas prices on the rise more people will be making the decision to take vacations close to home this year. If you’re a business owner, and depending on the business you have, this may be good news for you.
When your neighbors vacation close to home that may mean they’ll be supporting local businesses more – from restaurants to museums to golf courses – anything recreational in your community will benefit from a rise in local vacationers.
Those firms will in turn be inclined to spend more with the suppliers they depend on for business – from the local designer who updates their website to the virtual assistant or marketing consultant who helps the business to operate.
So if you’re looking to expand your client base think about how your business serves the recreational/hobby/tourism market in your community. This could be a good season for you!
