Small Business Saturday Shoppers 2017: Helping Small Businesses Compete with Big-Box and Online Giants
SalesFuel’s most recent AudienceSCAN survey found 23.7% of U.S. adults shopped at a locally owned business on Small Business Saturday. And although this percentage has been flat for the last two years, it’s still a big drop from 2014 – when 28.7% of Americans said they shopped small. Are small businesses doing enough to promote this holiday-shopping day? Could communities come together in bigger ways to cross-promote local business and present a united front? We at SalesFuel think the small business community is missing opportunities. Learn more about how local businesses can take full advantage of this special shopping day.
