Small Business Saturday TODAY; #ShopLocal support your service provider economy too!

Small Business Saturday (“SBS”) TODAY November 24th, 2012 please remember small business owners who provide services.

While American Express, the originator of SBS reported an estimated 103 million Americans shopped at independently-owned small businesses on November 26th last year; I wonder how much of that revenue was generated by the service providing industries in small businesses?

When your cake doesn’t sit on a shelf because it is a service; you most likely do not have a store front to hang your “Open For Business” sign to participate in this years activities for SBS.  What do you do?  Here is a few tips.

1) If your business is online; hang your shingle and represent your sale of services.

2) Post specials on your FaceBook, Twitter, and other online social media.  Let people know you are a part of Small Business Saturday.

Feel free to copy this LOGO to your FB page and also upload it on your twitter account! Get the word out you are open for business especially on SBS November 24th, 2012 and that you would appreciate their support of your service providing small business.  

3) Encourage sales of other small business service providers.  What goes around comes around!

AND Service Providers TOO!

4) Make a few simple graphics using whatever software you have to use.  Create a few stocking stuffer certificates for your services to sale and to gift to other small business owners. 

Let’s support all small businesses this coming November 24th, 2012.  #ShopLocal #BeGlobal!
