Moving parallel with the notion that flourishing small businesses are at the heart of any developing community or neighborhood, American Express dedicated a day to Small Businesses. From 2010 onwards, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is marked as ‘Small Business Saturday’, encouraging the cause and people to shop from small businesses. Putting small businesses on the map, the first event was a success and further, the day gained momentum.
Promoting the local communities and businesses organizations from all over the country sign up to serve as the ‘Neighbourhood Champions’. Various events and activities are organized throughout the year and on Small Business Saturday to bring their communities together.
Not only this, In 2011, a Small Business Saturday Coalition was formed by business associations, nonprofit trade groups, towns, and public officials to encourage everyone to Shop Small.

Create your SHOP SMALL STUDIO
You get to create your own banners and social posts for your business (refer to the screenshots) to spread the word.
Start early. Start fiercely.
Preparation is essential! Plan ahead of time to avoid the last-minute hassle. Bring your customers closer with early discounts and offers for the final day. Keep your social media handles updated and in sync with – “Coming Soon” announcement. In addition to that, keep track of inventory and make sure you understand what your customers will be looking for during the holiday. Tweak your business plans accordingly!
Give a reason to shop!
Discounts are clear, but there’s no way you’ll be able to compete with chain retailer Black Friday bargains while still making a profit. Instead, try something more unique, such as 1-day-only gift packages, a free gift with purchase, or handcrafted gift wrapping. Although everyone likes to save money, you’d be shocked how much more people are prepared to pay for customized service.
