Small Business Saturday FAQs
Here are some answers to popular questions about Small Business Saturday.
What is the purpose of Small Business Saturday?
Small Business Saturday’s purpose is twofold. First, it promotes the idea that shopping at smaller stores during the holiday season can help your local community businesses thrive despite massive global competition.
Second, Small Business Saturday is often an extension of the time period where Black Friday deals are offered. That means you can take advantage of Black Friday promotions for one extra day.
What company started Small Business Saturday?
American Express started Small Business Saturday in 2010 to promote local businesses and retailers trying to compete with big box stores during the holiday season. Amex put their marketing might behind the idea that “shopping small” for the holidays helps everyone in your local community — businesses and customers alike.
How can I promote my own small business on Saturday?
If you own a small business or an e-commerce website, you can take advantage of AmEx’s promotion by using Small Business Saturday social media hashtags, posting promotional web pages for deals at your company, and taking out ads with local publications. Even while gaining business for yourself, you’ll be helping other local businesses too.
