Creating a business in a small community has its ups and downs. Everyone usually knows everyone else, but new businesses are harder to accept because small communities are used to their classic companies. So, how do you advertise for a local business event within a smaller community?
This article will cover a few advertisement suggestions to capture the attention of prospective customers and consumers within a small city. If all goes well, you should have a nice turnout for your local business event!
Use Local Resources Newspapers, Bulletin Boards, and Radio Stations
Local businesses gain traction with the use of local resources. Newspapers, bulletin boards, and radio stations are tried and true methods for advertisement. These are classics for a reason. They work!
Volunteer with Community Events and Activities
Whenever possible, use community events and activities to subtly promote your business and motto. Is there an event in the local park where thousands of people will be attending?

The success of your local business event is half luck and half advertisement. You can control your advertisement and better your odds for a good turnout with the aforementioned method for advertisement in a small community.
