Support Small Business as an Insurance Agent
November 25, 2019
For small business owners, their business isn’t just a job – it’s their life. That’s why every year millions of Americans come together to support their local main street for Small Business Saturday. In 2018, consumers spent a record $17.8 billion supporting local businesses on Small Business Saturday.
What is Small Business Saturday?
Small Business Saturday began in 2010 as a day dedicated to shopping in your own community during the holiday season. It’s always promoted on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, and is focused on helping small businesses gain exposure, which in turn, helps the local economy. For every $100 spent at a local business, $68 goes back into the local community. When small businesses succeed, the whole community wins. Consider this:
Offer Employee Benefits for Local Businesses
Local business owners not only care about their business, but the people who spend their lives also working to make their businesses a success. Farm Bureau agents can help business owners establish employee benefits for themselves and their employees, such as retirement funding and health insurance coverage.
