Small Business Saturday: Add Your Website Link!

by Maria Lianos-Carbone

Now that Black Friday has passed, it’s time to celebrate small businesses with Small Business Saturday.


Small Business Saturday is held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, one of the busiest shopping times of the year. The first time it was celebrated was on November 27, 2010.

Holiday shoppers are encouraged to support small and local business – compared to the big box retailers and e-commerce stores that are featured usually on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

American Express and the National Federation of Independent Business conceived and promoted the idea. The hashtags #SmallBusinessSaturday and #smallbizsaturday on Twitter are used to highlight local businesses.

Here at 5 Minutes For Mom, we understand and realize the value of small business owners and want to celebrate them too.

If you own and operate a small business, please share our photo above and add a link to your website in the linky below!

Thankyou for the link. It has been a great networking week for me. I joined a local business group call Mompreneurs (Guelph, Ontario). It is amazing how many successful business women there are out there, and how great it is to share our success. :)
