Small Business SaturdayThis holiday season make an extra effort to support local community small businesses with your hard-earned cash!  Small Business Saturday℠ is a national movement to drive shoppers to local merchants across the U.S.  We have all heard of Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). In 2005 Cyber Monday was penned based on the appeal of online shopping.  Cyber Monday was the second highest spending day of 2009!  As entrepreneurs and solopreneurs, we all know the importance of small business to the economy.  Small businesses are the engine of job creation and have generated from 60 % to 80% of net new U.S. jobs annually over the last decade, according to the Small Business Administration.

November 27th will mark the first-ever “Small Business Saturday℠”.   This is your opportunity to invest in the success of small businesses in your own community!  Buy local and help keep your neighborhood and community economically strong.  As an added bonus, for those who support “Cause” and effect, by Liking the Small Business Saturday Facebook page, American Express will donate $1 up to $1,000,000 to Girls Inc. “to teach and empower young women to be entrepreneurs of tomorrow”.   There are other great offers on the Facebook site including  FREE small business Facebook ads for 10,000 small businesses and  American Express statement credits for 100,000 Cardmembers who register and “Shop Small” (check out the site for details).

eWomenNetwork is excited to be a part of this incredibly important initiative to support Small Business Saturday℠.  So, help us spread the word about #SmallBusinessSaturday!  Let’s all make an extra effort to support our friends and local vendors as they continue to provide value for their customers and deepen their roots in our community!
