When you do good, good comes back to you. That’s Karma.
If you help another small business, for example by recommending their products or services, chances are they will appreciate your helpful gesture and return the kindness. If you add a link to another business to your website, it will help your website, as well as help theirs. And if they link back to your website, too, even better.
When you share a Facebook post or ReTweet, something interesting or helpful from a friend or another small business, you are paying it forward, which is best done if you do not expect anything in return; goodness is its own reward.
One of the local, friendly and helpful internet marketing groups that is open to the public is the Jacksonville Online Marketing Meetup. The public group is open to entrepreneurs and people in local small businesses, as well as marketers who like to share their knowledge and experiences as well as learn from others. A great opportunity to make new friends while learning new stuff.
