Face for Business and Small Business Saturday UK 2015
Face for Business loves Small Business Saturday UK as it helped raise our profile immensely during its inaugural event back in 2013! Read our 2013 debrief here, to discover how it helped our small business, and read our participation in the 2014 event here.
This year will see Small Business Saturday UK endeavour to help raise the profiles of small businesses, by encouraging them to take part in the national event on Saturday 5th September 2015.
So, what are your plans for this year’s Small Business Saturday UK
Face for Business (a UK business telephone answering service) is already putting plans in motion! We want to appraise the small businesses in our local community of the campaign, by contacting them all in advance and encouraging them to get involved and promote themselves – if needed we will provide them with information on how to use the #SmallBizSatUK hashtag on twitter, how to use Facebook to their advantage and also provide them with a list of local media contacts to help get their small business noticed. We are then planning to produce a directory of these local businesses, and hope to help them with a little promotion on social media the week preceding Small Business Saturday UK.
How you can get involved.
Visit www.smallbusinesssaturydayuk.com to register for the regular newsletter, and to submit a listing for the ‘My Small Business Finder’. You can also request a Marketing Pack (available September 2015) and download the campaign logo for use across your social media platforms, websites, and promotion material.
We can’t stress enough how good this campaign has been for our business, and would encourage any small business to register and get involved. The team at #SmallBizSatUK are always happy to help, and promote small businesses as much as they can in the lead up to the event and on the day itself!
