Supporting small businesses in lockdown 3.0

Supporting small businesses in lockdown 3.0

Here at Cannabrew, we want to start by saying a big Happy New Year to all of our friends, family, customers and readers. Like everyone, we are eager to say goodbye to 2020 and are keen to see what 2021 brings for our company! We aim to bring you new products, new blog posts and much more, so we invite you to keep your eyes and ears peeled… (or, to make things easier, you could sign up to our regular newsletter to receive all of the latest Cannabrew gossip!)

While we’re feeling positive about the impending year, it’s important to be realistic about the here and now. Unfortunately, none of us are in the clear just yet. We understand that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone in one way or another, whether this be concerning mental health, physical health, unemployment and much more. However, we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the importance of supporting small and local businesses during these continually trying times.

At Cannabrew, we consider ourselves lucky – growing a business in the middle of a pandemic is not an easy task, and we are extremely proud of what we have managed to achieve, and we would like to keep on doing so. But we need your help! Here, we discuss some of the ways you can continue to support us and other small businesses while the Covid-19 pandemic persists:


Order from us…

With most of the country in fluctuating lockdowns, this has led to the closure of pubs, bars and restaurants – as we’re sure our readers are very much aware. This means that many of the establishments stocking our innovative CBD-infused beverages have unfortunately been forced to close. With local businesses having to close their doors, it’s easy to resort to bigger chains for your goods – but why fall back on your average beers when Cannabrew delivers straight to your door? We are keen to make your lockdown life a little easier by offering delicious crates of CBD- infused beers and lagers, so don’t hesitate to browse our range of products.

Once you’ve ordered your alcohol from us, why not get some takeaway food from another local business? We guarantee that all small businesses will need and appreciate your purchase, and there’s no better time than the present!


Leave us a (good) review…

Did you know that some people read up to 7 reviews before deciding to trust a product or business? Without our products having pride of place behind the bar, it’s more important than ever to build our online customer base. We are always keen to expand our Cannacrew, but we need our loyal band of customers to help us do so! Believe it or not, a good review is priceless for a small business, as it helps to encourage new customers to try our products. Plus, you might just get to feature on our Instagram story…

You can also leave reviews on Facebook and Untappd.


Speaking of social media…

Speaking of social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, here at Cannabrew, we try to be very active on both. Whether our posts are aimed looking for sales or laughs, they are always looking for likes and shares! Add our post to your story, share it on Facebook, or even leave a comment for people to see – the smallest level of effort goes a long way for a local business. If you’re not one for PDA, why not sent us a direct message? Any reviews, feedback and kind words are highly appreciated, and this gives us the motivation and confidence to continue pushing our business in such trying times.

Alternatively, the power behind word of mouth should never be understated. Yes, social media is highly important, but it hasn’t always existed. Word of mouth is just as important today as it always was in the past. So, on your next socially distanced walk, why not rave to your friend or family member about your latest purchase from Cannabrew?


Keep checking our website…

 It’s easy to forget that not everyone owns a social media account, but if you’re one of these people, don’t worry – you can stay up to date on the latest Cannanews by remembering to check out our website. Throughout 2021, we will be providing you with insightful, entertaining and interesting blog posts as well as product reveals, and much more! As mentioned above, you can also sign up to our regular newsletter, which will be sent via email.


The big picture…

While the Covid-19 pandemic is at the forefront of our minds, it’s important not to forget the rest of the world’s issues. By supporting us, you are not only contributing to our business, but also the environment! We are dedicated to sustainability, and to planting as many trees as we possibly can. If you are interested in learning more, make sure to check out our blog post explaining our fantastic collaboration with Ecologi.

While all of the above points will immensely benefit Cannabrew, they are also applicable to all small and local businesses. We urge you to support these companies and see them through the start of 2021 and into what will hopefully be a better place.
