I am pleased to say Outsource-Typing has been chosen to participate in this year’s Small Business Saturday UK “100”. 100 businesses have been chosen from all around the UK for promotion, one each day between now and 6th December: event day. What’s in store for the event day is still a secret, so it will be interesting to see what they organise for us all and I am looking forward to meeting the other participants.
Here’s what they say:
“Small Business Saturday is a grass-roots, non-political, non-commercial campaign that supports, inspires and promotes small business and encourages people to support small businesses in their communities, both on the Saturday itself and beyond. It is a time to focus on our nation’s small businesses, which provide almost two thirds of private sector employment and almost half of private sector turnover. This year Small Business Saturday in the UK will take place on the 6th December, one of our busiest shopping days of the year. More information on Small Business Saturday can be found on the Small Business Saturday Facebook page, Twitter page and website”.
Some stats from the 2013 Event:
- 48% of UK consumers aware of the day
- Over 1.5 million Facebook views
- #SmallBizSatUK trending top 3 all day
- 40% of Local Authority support
- £460m+ spent in small businesses
I’ll be doing my best to promote the event on social media, in my local area and also through my website and this blog!
I hope that this has been of interest and if you want to find out more please don’t hesitate to contact me or visit the links above.
Now I’m off to go and draft my press release!
