Take Action Today: Small Businesses Here’s Your Chance to Support One Another

Verizon Supports.JPGAmerican Express has launched a national movement called Small Business SaturdaySM, urging the public to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. 


Verizon is proud to join this effort 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 resources, news and tips to help any small and mid-sized businesses grow by utilizing new tools to engage customers and potential customers.


As the holiday shopping season commences, Verizon is joining the Small Business Saturday movement to urge small businesses to support one another and to shop at a local small business in your neighborhood.  To further support Small Business Saturday, Verizon will give a $25 American Express gift card to each of the first 800 small businesses that post a comment on this site. 


It’s simple, in the comments section of this blog just write a short note about how another small business can use your services or shop in your store.  Be sure to include your full name, the name of your business, your business’ address and website (if you have one and if you don’t… read this blog post).


This is a great opportunity to get your business listed here and to find out about other small businesses.


Only U.S.-based small businesses are eligible.  The first 800 small business owners who post a qualifying comment with all of the information noted above on or before December 20, 2010 will receive a $25 American Express gift card.  Limit one gift card per business, address and/or email.  The gift card will be mailed within 4-6 weeks. 


So go on, take action.  Let other small businesses know of your business.  Also, take the time to spread the word that you’ll be shopping at a local small business this holiday season and encourage others to do so as well.

I help small businesses create integrated marketing plans that get results. My specialty is helping them go beyond traditional marketing they're comfortable with (print ads, broadcast media, yellow pages etc.)  I coach clients on the smartest, most targeted ways to improve brand awareness, increase sales, create buzz on a new product, develop a new audience for an existing product & more. We use a customized plan that may include strategic, co-branding partnerships with complementary businesses, cause marketing campaigns that serve the greater good & work for your company, online marketing to position your company as a thought leader and improve your bottom line, and creative ways to use social media, beyond Facebook & Twitter. Basically, the types of strategies many small businesses shy away from, because they feel they may lack the expertise and resources needed for success.


I know the challenges small businesses face because I'm a small business owner too, so I offer flexibility in how we work together. I can consult for a couple of hours, or implement every detail. I'm working so hard on a client's new website, I haven't had time to finish the redesign on mine. If you're interested in learning more, please contact me at cachaltron@gmail.com

Small business is the future!  Creativity and innovation are best incubated in a small business environment...wish I had research to back that up, but it's definitely been my experience!  The reality is that without the bounds imposed by a large organization, the perfect small business can be nimble in all the key areas.


Here's to small business!
