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

Nickel Contributor ‎12-01-2010 10:53 AM


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.
