Small business week took place from April 30 through May 6, 2017, hosted by the Small Business Administration. What is Small Business Week? “Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories.”
With the constant influx of decision-making and responsibilities entrepreneurs (and business owners) manage everyday, we are bound to feel overwhelmed. In addition to our daily workload of service or product production, we are inundated with dealings with customers, staff and vendors via phone calls, emails, meetings, online and social media communication. It’s needless to say but many entrepreneurs often are under a great deal of stress.
These days, traditional marketing channels such as email marketing, mass mailings, TV and radio ads, billboards, newspaper and magazine ads have a decreasing effectiveness as each year passes. Internet marketing not only reaches a larger audience, it’s can be monitored with accurate analytics, and it is much more affordable.
