Take a break from whatever you’re doing. Let the phone go to voicemail, and sort through those emails in a few minutes. Right now, I want you to take out your cell phone, and open up to your calendar. Or, if you’re old school like me, open up the day planner sitting on your desk. Scroll or flip your way to Saturday, November 30, 2013.
Mark this day as busy, and if you already have something planned, reschedule, rearrange, and do whatever you have to do to ensure that you can support American Express’ Small Business Saturday on Saturday, November 30th! First introduced in November of 2010, Small Business Saturday has achieved much success over the past few years. From gaining 1.2 million Facebook likes in one month in 2010 to being recognized by the U.S. Senate in 2011, Small Business Saturday has quickly earned respect and recognition. Last year, after their consumer reported awareness reached 67%, the event achieved a new level of achievement, when President Obama himself tweeted about #SmallBizSat!
Small businesses are the fostering cornerstones of our economy. They create jobs, add character to every neighborhood, and are a vital asset to our communities.
Support the small businesses in your communities on November 30th by keeping your neighborhood informed and visiting the small businesses near you. If you are a small business owner yourself, AmericanExpress.com offers marketing resources to help you attract customers, in addition to the resources you seek on CharlotteBusinessResources.com.
