Online Tools to Help Small Businesses Capitalize on Small Business Saturday

14 Nov

Small Business Saturday is coming up on November 30 and it’s the perfect opportunity for small business owners to take advantage of the Shop Local love in their community. Last year Americans spent $5.5 billion in small businesses on Small Business Saturday, so you do not want to miss out! This year there are five fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it is important to be well prepared for this day to take maximum advantage of the additional exposure your store can receive. Below are some links for online tools to help you maximize your business this year.
