Ipswich Town & Waterfront celebrates #SmallBiz100

Ipswich Town & Waterfront celebrates #SmallBiz100

Proud to champion local and independent businesses in and around Ipswich

Small Business Saturday is a date in the diary - a date which encourages people to think local and independent when they go out and start their Christmas shopping. The date falls on the first Saturday in December, coinciding with people receiving their November pay slips. This year Small Business Saturday falls on 2nd December.

But did you know that Small Business Saturday is more than a date in the diary? It's actually a non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success throughout the year, and one of its campaigns is Small Biz 100, known online as #SmallBiz100.

This year, Ipswich Town & Waterfront made an application to be considered as as one of  the top 100 UK small businesses which works to support their local community, local businesses and the local economy. So we we delighted when we got the news that we had been chosen.

Small Biz 100 profiles a different small business in the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday, and celebrates their work by profiling these local businesses on social media. Wednesday 15th November sees the turn of Ipswich Town & Waterfront, and we're encouraging all Ipswich based businesses to get involved. It is a great opportunity to profile ALL businesses in our town. Simply put out a tweet about why you love running your business in Ipswich and use the hashtag #IpswichLovesSmallBiz and we'll give you a retweet. Together we can spread the message of how great Ipswich is for small businesses - and for our customers too!

And because we're keen to spread the love further, for any local business who has not accessed our advertising and marketing services before, we're also offering 3 MONTHS FREE advertising when you sign up before 2nd December - giving your business a boost in the lead-up to Christmas. So if you're a local business and want to take advantage of this great offer CLICK HERE.
