How You Can Support Small Business In Challenging Times
"Independent business bring originality and variety in a world that’s becoming increasingly homogenized.” - Craig Costello (Artist and founder, KRINK).
SHARE THE LOVE
In this blog we'll share five ways you, our wonderful Whodunnit fan, can support our small, independent company in these challenging times.
Everyone loves a good recommendation and advocating for your favourite small business can be as easy as clicking 'share' on our Facebook posts or tagging your friends in the comments section.
By encouraging friends and family to check out our Whodunnit Facebook page, you're helping us reach a wider community of folk who might enjoy our quirky, unique and alternative brand of Murder Mystery entertainment.
“By supporting independents, you’re actually supporting people who push creativity in business forward every day of their lives.” - Jason Wang (founder - Xi'an Famous Foods).
Small businesses like ours rely heavily on reviews to stand out from the bigger companies in the events industry.
If you’ve been to one of our Whodunnit Events in the last two years and find yourself with a little more free time than usual while social distancing, now is the perfect time to hop on Trustpilot, Design My Night or Facebook to share a kind note about your experience with us.
How was the communication prior to the event?
Were you greeted by someone as you entered the venue?
How was the meal and the service you received?
Did the Murder Mystery live up to your expectations?
Would you return for another event in future?
Any constructive feedback on how we can improve?
We listen to all of the feedback we receive and shape our events accordingly.
“Most independent businesses are run by people - not by boards, not by stockholders, not by algorithms. And so you get a different kind of care and quality in their product because their work is a reflection of themselves." Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur (co-founders - Of A Kind).
We love talking about Murder Mysteries so please contact us for a chat about an event you may want to arrange in future for yourself, your colleagues or a loved one, even if none of the details are worked out yet.
Our Murder Mystery events are suitable for any size of group and can be performed at a wide range of venues across Scotland. They are perfect for private parties and corporate events alike. We are happy to recommend some of our favourite venues which we feel are perfectly suited to a Murder Mystery performance.
If you just want to talk it all through, find out what it is that we do and discover what makes Whodunnit so alternative then email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gift vouchers are a great way to support a small business now by getting something for the future. Self-isolating is already affording us a new perspective on how important our relationships with friends and family are. A gift voucher provides an extra incentive for you to all gather together once things settle down for one of our unique social experiences where you'll share a meal, a catch up and enjoy a fun evening's entertainment. Our gift vouchers are valid for up to 18 months from the time of purchase and are available for as little as £5. Contact us for further details.
"When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a happy little dance." - Chris McCann (Director of Whodunnit Events).
BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE
Whilst we all keep an eye on the latest developments, we would encourage you to consider booking onto one of our events later this year.
If an event is cancelled or postponed, you would receive a full refund on your booking, including booking fees.
We continue to take health and hygiene very seriously and will implement a number of safety measures at our upcoming events. You can read more about these measures here.
Thank you for reading our posts this week, we hope you'll be inspired to support Whodunnit Events now and in the future and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
Best wishes and take care,
Chris & The Whodunnit Team.
