Are you one of the many shoppers patiently waiting for Thanksgiving festivities to conclude so that you can head over to your favorite stores for Black Friday? If you love these shopping bargains as much as everyone else, we suggest taking advantage of Small Business Saturday too! Small Business Saturday is similar to Black Friday but unique in that it encourages shoppers to shop at small and local businesses rather than big named stores. This year, Small Business Saturday falls on November 29th, the Saturday following Thanksgiving. There are a variety of ways you can celebrate and promote this movement, including:
- If you own a business, try to promote the event! A little advertising will go a long way, as shoppers will see you as a participating store and head over to jump on some bargain deals. You may even want to provide holiday gift bags with company logos on the items for an extra boost of promotion.
- As a small business owner, it is important that you jump on this opportunity to allow your company to flourish. If you do not have the funds to host a special event, you may want to consider partnering up with another small business for an even better deal!
- You are already spending a great deal of time on social media, right? Why not promote Small Business Saturday by posting where you will be shopping on this bargain day and use the hash tag #SmallBusinessSaturday in all of your posts!
