Black Thursday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now Small Business Saturday.
There is no end to the ways you can spend your cash this week! But Small Business Saturday has a bit more of a mission than getting the cheapest flatscreen TV; it seeks to help out smaller businesses that sometimes get left out in the cold while big box stores draw in millions of early holiday spending. AmEx is supporting the event’s second year in existence by offering a cool $25 dollars to any AmEx card owner who decides to throw a little love to the mom and pop stores. So far the campaign has been a smashing success with a 28% increase in sales during the event’s first year in 2010 compared to the Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2009. Consumer Affairs has a great write up on the 2011 campaign, and if you’d like to get your own business involved you should definitely give it a read.
But what if you don’t have a small business? Well fret not loyal follower, for we are holding our own sale to help you get everything you need to start your own corporation or LLC.
We will be offering all of our incorporation packages on sale, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars. It all starts with our Just the Basics package which will get you your articles of organization for just $49 plus government fees and shipping/handling. From then on the bigger package you purchase, the more money you save! Be sure to take a look at our ‘Start a Business‘ section to see all the bundle deals that we offer.
The sale will take place all Saturday and, best of all, is entirely online. That means no traffic, no lines and very little likelihood of rioting.
Finally, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we would like to thank everyone for their continuing support of our own business venture. So good luck to all of you startes and have a very happy Thanksgiving!
