Today is Small Business Saturday – it’s a day when you can show your support for your favorite, local small businesses in your area as you do your Christmas shopping. This is a great reminder to shop within your community and remember all that these small businesses have to offer. It’s also a day to support those who run a small business online. We thought that Small Business Saturday would also be the perfect time to give our Thrifty NW Mom readers the chance to share if you have a Small Business – whether it be a local, small business here in the Northwest, an online business such as an Etsy shop or Facebook page for your handcrafted items or if you’re a consultant for a business such as Scentsy, Pampered Chef, & more.
Since it’s also Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend, it’s a great opportunity for you to not only share about your business, but let us know if you have any specials going on this busy shopping weekend – or even better, if you have a special deal just for Thrifty NW Mom readers.
We’re looking forward to seeing the variety of small businesses that all of you readers are involved in and hope it will be a great opportunity for the Thrifty NW Mom community to support each other!
I’ve set up a Linky so that you can have a link directly to your site and so it’s easier for the readers to connect with your business. You’ll need to put the name of your business & a very brief description of a sale that you’re offering & if you have a special coupon code – this all needs to go under the “Link Title”. The actual link to your business will go under the “URL” . If you have further information about your business or if you do not have a website to link to, you can leave that information as a comment on this post.
Example: Pacific NW Crafty Gals – Use coupon code: THRIFTY for a 20% discount on your purchase (thru 11/26)
This would be what you would put for the title under “Link Title”
Here are a few guidelines:
- You must leave the link to your website or blog on this blog post only (not on Facebook) – if you don’t have a website but have a local business, then feel free to leave the specific information for the business.
- It’s best to leave a link to your business website, Etsy page or Facebook Fan page. However, if you don’t have a website and want to leave your email address in the comments, I recommend typing it out like this to avoid spam comments (thriftynorthwestmom (at) gmail (dot) com.
- Small Businesses must be family-friendly since this is a site for families – we will delete those links/comments that are not family-friendly or that we feel are not appropriate for a small business listing.
