Established in the US by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is designed to support local economies and is a great opportunity for marketing.
Part of the “Shop Local” movement, ShipStation proudly supports small businesses and their customers by helping provide streamlined, efficient order and delivery fulfilment – building trust for all those small businesses working tirelessly up and down the UK.
Taking part in Small Business Saturday on the 4th of December gives you an excellent opportunity to reach out to new and existing customers online as well as promoting your business within your local area. We’ve put together two top tips to help you make this Saturday an overwhelming success:
- Let your community know you’re taking part – post on social media, in groups supporting local businesses in your vicinity and use the hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday.
- Contact local business organisations in your area – find out if there are any events planned in your area to support Small Business Saturday or if not, be the champion yourself.
How can ShipStation help?
Designed with businesses of all sizes in mind, ShipStation bridges the gap between ecommerce and online marketplaces and local brick and mortar retail establishments. Seamlessly sell online to customers in your area, using the stock you already have in store providing quick and easy delivery with a range of couriers available.
Don’t just take our word for it. Louise V., Founder of Bookishly has this to say:
“ShipStation has given me the confidence to not always be here. It’s a wonderful luxury to have that flexibility.”
The ShipStation team is here to help make your business successful on Small Business Saturday and far into the future – contact our team for more information.
