We would never limit our admiration for small businesses to just one week, but we’re definitely here to tip the hat in celebration of National Small Business Week, April 30 to May 6.
What makes Thryv’s relationships special with small businesses is our vast team of in-the-field business advisors. These folks work hand-in-hand with our customers to ensure their business is working as efficiently as possible and they’re on the road to growth.
This year, our Business Advisors visited several small business owners who use Thryv to ask them what advice they have for other small businesses and how Thryv helps them get the job done.
Here’s just a peek at some of the responses from small businesses around the country. To get the full scoop and all the #HighThryv action, check out our social channels, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok and Twitter, and follow the hashtags #SmallBusinessWeek and #HighThryv.
Advice for Small Business Owners

“Don’t give up. Keep on trying. It’s definitely tough out here. It’s not just like your typical 9 to 5, but it’s definitely well worth it and keep on pressing.”
Greg Doyle, Greg’s Garage, Nev.
“First of all, you need to invest in marketing. You need to put money aside and promote your company as well as be involved in the community.”

“My advice to other small businesses is to be a little more personable and get to know your people to make things just flow a little bit better.”
Wyatt Matheson, Firth Service Center, Idaho
“If you’re looking to purchase a business from an old owner or you’re looking into opening up your own company, the biggest thing is: Make sure it’s something that you’re passionate about.”

“We love that you come out whenever we have any questions or any kind of needs with this great customer service. We also really like that Thryv takes care of all our marketing and social media presence. It’s less things for us to have to worry about. We can worry more about taking care of our customers.”

Since I’ve been associated with Thryv, I’ve gotten to be able to reach more people and have my business optimized online. And that presence is very important for people who need the help to be able to find us.

“I like the bundle package where you get the citations, you get the invoicing, the estimating, the scheduling, the widgets on the website, the billing — the entire package.”
