WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP THE MT WASHINGTON VALLEY COMMUNITY?
North Conway, NH - We’ve heard from many visitors and second homeowners who know, love and miss their favorite playground that they’d like to do what they can for the Mt Washington Valley community. Home to some of the country’s original attractions, visitors have been coming to play in this mountain community for centuries. Now, as Americans are asked to stay at home and shelter in place, they can only dream of their next trip to Mt Washington Valley.
The Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce has been asked, “what can we do to help the community?”. There are several gestures travelers can take to help those businesses that have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Give your favorite business a 5-star rating
Visit TripAdvisor, Yelp, LinkedIn, HomeAdvisor or other directories and offer a 5-star review and rating for your favorite attraction, restaurant, retailer, lodging property or consumer businesses. Positive reviews are one of the most important factors visitors use in making buying decisions. A five-star review is one of the quickest, easiest and most powerful acts of gratitude you can offer a business you care about.
Give your favorite business a shout-out & follow them
Use your social media clout to give your favorite business a shout out. Hey, that rhymes! On your social media pages offer kudos, praise or a mention of something special your favorite Mt Washington Valley business did for you. Don’t forget to tag them so your message shows up on their social media pages too. And most importantly, follow and like or comment on their social media pages too.
Make plans to visit Mt Washington Valley once it’s safe to travel
Once you can safely travel again, you’ll be anxious to get back to your favorite playground. Now is the time to research your next trip to Mt Washington Valley, and even make reservations for the future. Spend some time on websites learning about all the offerings and plan the trip you’ll really deserve after it’s once again safe to travel.
Buy Gift Certificates
Now is the time to invest in your next trip to Mt Washington Valley. Second homeowners can use their buying clout to purchase gift certificates for home improvements and visitors can endow their dream vacations with gift certificates that can be used once it’s time for that next vacation. Nearly all Mt Washington Valley businesses offer gift certificates, and it’s the perfect way to do something now to help their bottom line.
