The UPS Store launches a campaign to help small businesses extend their networks.
The UPS Store® just launched its Small Biz Salute campaign, which celebrates small business owners nationwide during National Small Business Week, May 4–8, 2015.
The campaign gives small businesses an opportunity to extend their network, identify new connections and support each other by sharing best practices.
As an extension of The UPS Store's commitment to the small business community, the Small Biz Salute campaign gives small businesses an opportunity to extend their network, identify new connections and support each other by sharing best practices. According to survey results released by The UPS Store, 73 percent of small business owners would find a firsthand connection with others in their industry helpful.
In an effort to facilitate the link between small business owners, The UPS Store is launching the weeklong campaign in the nation's top small business cities – Seattle, Austin and Atlanta – giving entrepreneurs special opportunities to make meaningful connections with others in their communities and gain valuable advice from small business mentors.
The UPS Store's Small Biz Salute events will celebrate and unite local small business owners. The weeklong activities include:
- Coffee shop takeovers. To help raise awareness about locally owned businesses, The UPS Store staff will be at select coffee shops in the three cities treating consumers to free coffee. The UPS Store will also surprise startups and small businesses by delivering coffee to their doors.
- Evening happy hours. The UPS Store will host networking events featuring local entrepreneurial experts who will offer valuable advice on topics relevant to small business owners.
The UPS Store is encouraging people nationwide to show their support by sharing and celebrating their favorite small businesses on social media using the hashtag #SmallBizSalute.
With more than 4,400 locations, The UPS Store is committed to helping small business owners launch and grow their business. Each store's innovative approach to helping the everyday entrepreneur includes 3D printing services, business consulting, and opportunities for mentoring and sharing best practices among small business owner customers.
