Media & Business Role in a Community
Small Business Plays a Valuable Part in Any Community
In every part of our lives, we depend on others apart from our family – and that includes businesses of all types in our own city, town, or neighborhood: retailers, barbers, tailors, home improvement contractors, florists, photographers, you name it. Without these businesses and the entrepreneurs who start and run them, our lives would be much more difficult. All these enterprises, working together, help form a strong, vibrant community.
To maintain the well being of any community, the prosperity of local businesses is vital. Local businesses and organizations create not just a network of economic relationships, but social relationships, too. Local businesses keep dollars in the community and enrich the community in myriad other ways as well.
The Critical Role of Local Media
When looking at successful local communities, there’s one recurring common thread: the part played by newspapers and television stations. These media outlets serve as a “hub” that not only brings residents and businesses news about their community, but connects local buyers and sellers on a continuing basis.
Local newspapers and television stations have a huge impact on the economy of cities, towns, and neighborhoods. The reporting they do keeps people informed, engaged, and interacting with one another, and can make or break the economic development of the community.
By bringing people together, the local media outlet is a central point of information that is nothing less than the vital, beating heart of any thriving community.
