How to join the Shop Small campaign to get more holiday shoppers.
For over a decade, small businesses have raised a collective voice to promote Small Business Saturday—the day after Black Friday. Retail shops, restaurants, beauty salons and more celebrate the day as way to highlight what they do for their communities. This year, holiday shoppers are encouraged to “shop small” on Saturday, November 25. Here’s how your business can be part of Small Business Saturday.
Get free marketing materials
Through a collaboration of the Small Business Association, Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) and American Express, a series of free marketing materials are yours to use. Download free posters and social media posts with images at the Shop Small Resources Hub.
When to post social media
The Shop Small Resources Hub says the best time to post social media content for peak engagement is between 9 a.m. and noon CT on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Customize your outreach
In addition to using Shop Small marketing assets, many businesses entice shoppers with customized offers. Popular tactics include:
- Goodie bags
- Sip & Shop with beverages and snacks
