Plantronics (News - Alert) has revealed its desire to be a part of Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday, scheduled for Nov. 24, 2012, aims to reinforce the community by assisting local, autonomous small businesses.
American Express (News - Alert) initiated Small Business Saturday, a yearly event, in 2010. On Small Business Day 2011, millions of consumers shopped at small businesses. As per the Small Businesses Association, nearly 65 percent of total original jobs have been created by small businesses in the last 17 years. These jobs correspond to 99.7 percent of all employer organizations.
In a statement, Judi Hembrough, director, SMB Marketing, Plantronics said, “Small Business Saturday has resonated with the American public in a very short period of time. We are proud to be a supporter of the small businesses that play such a major role in fueling the U.S. economy. Communications is the lifeblood of a small business and this is where Plantronics can help by providing flexible communication tools and services.”
An assortment of methods has been developed by American Express to increase awareness about the significance of assisting small businesses. American Express has also devised ways to encourage customers to shop small. ShopSmall.com offers several tools which can be advantageously used by small business owners and associates.
