After the turkey and football, I’m sure many of you will hit the stores to look for those great deals. Last year, 101.7 million people shopped on Black Friday. Saturday is another big day. It has been designated as an opportunity for shoppers to support small business owners. More than 6,700 small businesses and organizations signed up to be Neighborhood Champions last year and 112 million people shopped at those establishments.
Let’s increase those numbers in 2017. Show your support for local entrepreneurs. I am going to take a moment to promote a local, small business you may have heard of - Angela Spears Communication. (Don’t judge! LOL! This is a great opportunity to showcase some of my services.) I believe in great storytelling and sharing the power of your voice. I focus on media, social media and community outreach. My company can handle your strategic planning, innovative branding and message development. Learn more about my marketing, public relations and community engagement company at www.angelaspearscomm.com. I look forward to working with you!
If you have not shopped at a small business, I encourage you to show us some love. Give us a chance. Help us grow! We are the backbone of the economy. Support and shop at a small business on Saturday and beyond!
