Small Businesses Here’s Your Chance to Support One Another Again
Last year we supported American Express’ national movement called Small Business Saturday SM, urging the public to support the local businesses that help to create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country.
Verizon is proud to join in again as a leading provider of products and services to businesses of all sizes.
Verizon already supports small businesses through the Verizon Small Business Center, a best in class one-stop portal offering free resources like our free webinars, news and tips to help any small and mid-sized business (SMB) grow their business by utilizing new tools to engage customers and potential customers.
As the holiday shopping season commences, Verizon joins the Small Business Saturday movement to urge small businesses to support one another and to shop at a local business in their neighborhood. To further support Small Business Saturday, Verizon will give a $25 American Express gift cards to the first 600 small businesses that take action.
It’s simple, share a marketing tip with us and the other SMBs that view our Verizon Small Biz Blog and tell us how you will market your business on November 26 – Small Business Saturday – or throughout the holiday shopping season. Go to http://www.smallbusinesssaturday.com/ to find marketing resources you can use to help get you started.
Be sure to complete the form and include your full address (so we can mail you the $25 Amex gift card), your business’ website (if you have one and if you don’t… please read this blog post) and lastly tell us which small business you’ll shop at with your gift card.
This is a great opportunity to do your small part to help another small business.
This $25 Amex Card Giveaway is open to U.S.-based small businesses only. The first 600 small business owners who completes the qualifying form (click here or go to http://bit.ly/rt6yF6) with all of the information requested on the Verizon Small Biz Blog on or before November 30, 2011 will receive a $25 American Express gift card. Limit one gift card per business, address and/or email address. The gift card will be mailed within 8-12 weeks. Verizon employees, contractors, directors and officers are not eligible.
So go on, take action. Do your part to help another small business. And be sure to tell your friends or family – non-business owners – to check out this post on the Verizon AtHome Blog for their chance to get a $25 American Express gift card.
To support Small Business Saturday, Verizon is also giving away a $500 Amex Gift Card to 100 lucky winners who enter on our Small Business Facebook page. In total, with the help from American Express, Verizon will be giving away $90,000 in Amex gift cards in various denominations to encourage our customers and business owners to support their local businesses.
We urge you to take the time to spread the word that you will be shopping at a local business and encourage others to shop at a local business too.
Thank you and happy shopping!
