Small Business Saturday is the day after Black Friday (before Cyber Monday!) created with the purpose of celebrating and supporting small businesses and small business owners.
You’ve probably seen the American Express commercial. The bank/credit card company does a big push for shopping small this time of year to support local small businesses.
No matter the size of your community – from San Francisco to where I live in San Luis Obispo or my home town of Wimberley, Texas – small businesses are at the core of what makes local communities special.
How To Support Small Business Saturday 2022
How to support Small Business Saturday 2022? It’s the peak of the holiday shopping season, so the easiest way to support a small business is to shop small! Gift something from a local business or even a gift card! I know everyone says it’s impersonal, but I love gift cards.
If you’re on a budget, you can support small businesses by simply following them on social media or sign up to receive marketing materials.
Following a small business is an easy way to help expand their X and reach new customers, or can even serve as a reminder to get that one thing you have your eye on when your budget allows.
