It’s officially the 4th quarter and that means you should already have started getting ready for the holiday season! This preparation includes encouraging everyone to shop small!
Yes, the gift giving season is quickly approaching and today we heard from American Express! Small Business Saturday is November 24th, and it is for both physical and online business. If you haven’t participated in the past, we’re sharing their link here:
American Express wants to see us do well and they really step in and prove it with this amazing program! They, along with partnering companies, offer physical and customized printable, marketing materials, online guides, and more!
Best part is that it’s free! Yep. True story. So just go get it 🙂
If you request physical marketing materials, what they send will likely vary from what someone else will receive. We’ve heard of people receiving many different fun and useful items. We’ve never received the welcome mats, but shops have posted pictures online. They have the Shop Small logo on them. Our personal favorite was the clear packing tape! Great quality, and it really gets the word out and encourages people to shop with us small businesses.
Below are some pictures of items they have sent out in the past.
The online Custom Materials includes Posters, Tip Sheets, Flyers, even a cute little video!
Happy Small Business Saturday everyone!
