Our Second Year Supporting Small Business Saturday®

small business saturdayCanton, Ohio — November 26, 2013 — Small Business Saturday® is just days away, occurring on November 30th this year. As a corporate sponsor for the second time, Patriot Software, LLC, is encouraging small business owners to take advantage of the event.

Mike Kappel, President of Patriot Software Company, explains, “All of our customers are small business owners, and many of them are constantly looking over their shoulders to see if the national chains are closing in on them. Small Business Saturday® shines a big spotlight on local shops and their importance in our communities.”

Kappel’s team advocates for small business owners year round, and they want to arm their customers with the valuable (and free!) online marketing tools found at ShopSmall.com.

Did you know?

American Express is again offering Cardmembers a statement credit ($10) if they preregister and then patronize one of the registered small businesses on Saturday, November 30, 2013.

“What a great ‘excuse’ to contact existing customers or a ‘hook’ to entice new customers,” says Kappel. “Do the math … if their purchase costs $10, the purchase is free to the customer. How often can a small business make an offer like that for customers?”

Shop Small® has become a “big” thing

The Shop Small Movement inspires people to shop with and support the small businesses that are the heartbeat of their neighborhoods. Small Business Saturday has inspired a yearlong movement that’s been embraced by millions of individuals, businesses, and communities nationwide.

Patriot Software, LLC, is proud to be a corporate supporter of Small Business Saturday®!!
