Today is a day that small online businesses and locally owned shops and artists rely on to support themselves through the winter months. It has been estimated that on Small Business Saturday 2017, nearly $13 billion dollars were spent with independently owned businesses
We are so proud to know and work with so many hard working (and talented!) small business owners.
Please take 5 minutes and share your favorite small business to your personal Facebook page or Instagram feed. It’s a free and supportive gesture that helps give exposure to small businesses that usually cannot afford to advertise on Social Media.
Also, if you see someone on your local Facebook Group looking for a recommendation and you had a great experience with a small business, recommend them! It only takes a minute or two to share your experience and help them advertise!
Spending 5 minutes of your time might help pay next month’s mortgage payment at your child’s dance studio or boost your Seamstress’ sales just enough so that she hires a second Seamstress which helps puts food on another table.
Small gestures make all the difference to a small business.
Small businesses support communities, not shareholders.
