WHAT IS SMALL BUSINESS SEASON?
Small Business Season is a free chamber-industry marketing campaign created to help small businesses worldwide thrive. Small businesses need more than one day focused on them. They need an entire season! That’s why this year we are encouraging chambers of commerce, neighbors, business owners, and community leaders to support the call to action to "Shop Small this Small Business Season".
WHO IS SMALL BUSINESS SEASON FOR?
Small Business Season is for anyone wanting to support local small businesses in their community. We encourage any and all chambers of commerce and their members to participate. The more we share and reinforce the message, the stronger the message is.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN SMALL BUSINESS SEASON:
You can choose to use everything we provide or you can pick from the many marketing materials and resources provided. These include free images, articles, checklists, calendar, hand-outs, and more.
IMAGES: Share Small Business Season on social media platforms, newsletters, emails. Choose to have Small Business Season logo printed on fliers, posters, vinyl stickers, etc.
ARTICLES: Share Small Business Season articles on your blog, newsletter, social platforms, etc. You will be giving professionally written articles that support shopping local this Small Business Season.
PRESS RELEASE: Send out a press release to local news media. Catch the attention of your members, elected officials, and community.

EDUCATION: Educating your community about the importance of shopping small and shopping local.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Melissa Martinez, Director, Washburn Area Chamber
I loved the stuff you provided last year (thanks for the tweaks Norma). A good chunk of our businesses still have the posters in their windows. We have one in our window, and I have one framed in my office signed by the Gov., and the secretary of WEDC, and our 2 local representatives who were here last year to kick off the States shop small campaign.
I am all in for this new idea.
