Saturday, November 24, 2012 is Small Business Saturday® – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. Please join the SBA and organizations across the country in supporting your local small business by shopping at a small business. – sba.gov/saturday
Small Business Saturday is November 24! I’ve heard of several businesses running deals and cross-promoting each other to champion shopping local, and we’d really like to see this become a tradition and a big success in West Michigan.
I linked it above with their explanation of the event, but sba.gov/saturday has a ton of great information including “tips for holiday marketing, hiring temporary workers, and gearing up for the holiday season.”
The particularly interesting resources are:
- A Holiday Marketing Tips & Ideas web chat November 19
- Great articles and advice on the Small Business Matters blog
- Free Small Business Saturday marketing materials
- And Small Business Saturday on Facebook!
This is factastic! Make sure that you’re taking advantage of these things to help you grow small businesses in our community. Email us if you are participating and we will share your information on our social media pages. Feel free to get in touch if you have questions.
Thanks and have a good day!
