Small Business Saturday - are you a 10?
Founded by American Express® in 2010, Small Business Saturday is November 30, and dedicated to supporting local businesses that help neighborhoods prosper. It’s celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and has given small businesses across the country a huge boost. Last year, consumers aware of Small Business Saturday are estimated to have spent a reported total of $5.5 billion with independent merchants – like you.
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber would like to partner with 10 small businesses to help them capitalize on this national event. If your business accepts American Express!
If you’re interested in receiving complimentary $25 American Express gift cards, bags, welcome mats and balloons for your storefront branded with the Small Business Saturday logo, contact Lori Holiday at 513.579.3189, or email@example.com by Friday, November 1 first-come, first-served!
AFTER you register with Lori, you’ll visit www.ShopSmall.com/resources to take advantage of the American Express toolkit of marketing material. The online toolkit includes a personalized online ad, printable signage, messages you can use for your social media efforts, email templates, tips and resources for the day – plus if you’re a qualifying American Express Card-accepting small merchant, you can get your business on an interactive map to help cardholders find at your shop at your business if you register by November 4.
Between November 1-11, we’ll send a Chamber Ambassador to your store with the goods that you can use to incent, reward and celebrate your after-Thanksgiving traffic!
Imagine what can happen when your entire neighborhood comes together to support the businesses they love (like yours!)
Join the movement and make Small Business Saturday huge for your business — and your neighborhood.
