As a locally owned business, we rely heavily on word of mouth referrals, primarily from current clients, loan officers, and realtors. We 100% understand that businesses can thrive and/or die by referrals (or lack thereof).
2020 was set up to be a banner year for many businesses. The national economy was humming and growing at a rapid pace, locally in the Charleston market, we seemed to be growing even quicker. Then…step in Covid-19…
What started out as a promising year turned into an interesting challenge for many businesses (and families)…some have excelled and have had their best year ever, while others have gone out of business (or lost their job)…not due to lack of try I might add. In all honesty, it really depends on what industry one is in to determine how Covid-19 has impacted them.
At Mappus, we kept saying, how can we make a bigger impact. We have given away gift cards to local businesses to help support them. We have donated money to various charities and groups. We have volunteered. We thought, what else can we do?
As an insurance agency, we insure families and businesses. We thought, why not spotlight our clients that own businesses (even if we don’t insure their business)…so that is what we are doing.
Below you will find an array of businesses that are in our community. Chances are, you use a service or product they provide…or maybe you have thought about it.
The purpose of these short video spotlights is to highlight what your neighbors and friends of our communities are doing and hopefully spreading their name out there to help them during this time.
If you are reading this and watching the videos below, we sincerely want to say THANK YOU.
