SMS always falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which the official start to the holiday shopping season! This keeps it on consumers’ minds as they shop around town to think about shopping small.

Here’s what merchants can do to take advantage of Small Business Saturday:

Promote Your Business on Social Media
Promoting yourself as a local small business on social media is a great way to garner attention. American Express also has on their Shop Small website marketing kits for different business types to promote shopping small. If you’re having sales on the Black Friday weekend, promote those too as part of Small Business Saturday.

Offer Specials and Discounts
Reward customers that shop with you by offering a small discount, a gift with their purchase, gift wrapping. These little things really help go a long way and help promote the personal touch that small businesses can provide.

Don’t Try to Compete with the Big Box Stores
Being a small business gives you the unique position of selling an experience on top of selling merchandise. Focusing on the experience and personal touches will set your business apart from the anonymity of the big stores.

Ease Customer Stress
Holiday shopping can be stressful! By offering free gift-wrapping or shipping can help ease the stress of customers needing to shop for the holidays.
