Canton, Ohio, Nov. 16, 2016 — Patriot Software, LLC, a provider of online accounting and payroll software, will again be participating as a corporate supporter of Small Business Saturday®. This year, Small Business Saturday will take place on November 26. The day is designed to promote the importance of shopping at small businesses, also known as the Shop Small Movement.
Created in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity for small businesses to advertise, offer incentives to customers, and join together with local communities. Small Business Saturday has become a national movement, with 95 million consumers shopping at small businesses on the day in 2015 alone.
“National corporations have Black Friday and online stores have Cyber Monday. Small Business Saturday falls smack dab in between the two. Coincidence? Small businesses are the meat and potatoes of our economy,” says Mike Kappel, CEO. “We encourage everyone to help out their local small businesses and shop small this November 26th.”
Free marketing materials are available to small businesses at ShopSmall.com.
To support Small Business Saturday, Patriot’s 7 Days of Small Business contest on Instagram will feature seven of Patriot’s small business customers. Consumers can tag their favorite small business in the comments of each Instagram post to be entered for an American Express gift card.
Patriot Software encourages small business owners to take advantage of Small Business Saturday 2016 and promote the Shop Small Movement year round. Small business owners can involve their employees, consumers, and communities by participating in Small Business Saturday 2016.
