Celebrating the Businesses that Make America Work: National Small Business Week

Published On: May 2, 2018 | Categories: Advertising and Marketing |

In May 2015, Strategic America provided public relations services to the U.S. Small Business Administration highlighting the importance of small businesses in our economy. We were able to engage network news, major dailies, entertainment programs and online media outlets serving more than 10 million impressions.

Relevant and important then, the story is even more so today.

  • More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, creating almost two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
  • Since 1963, every President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week recognizing the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
  • Small businesses are innovating and working to train and grow 21st century jobs for our global economy.

SA serves thousands of these small businesses—dealers, distributors, agents, brokers, and franchisees aligned with a corporate brand—with our mission of finding a better way to help them succeed in local markets across the United States.

We help them deploy the marketing and advertising tools they need and support them with counsel to help them accomplish all that they might achieve. Doing this at scale across thousands of communities creates leverages to the advantage of leading brands at a corporate level.

This week and every week, we support the contributions of those who deserve recognition for the work they love and the impact they make in communities across America.

Make your voice heard by stopping in, purchasing from, and saying thanks to your small business friends.
