Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday Philadelphia - Ep. 10 - Eclectic Learning Network

An episode of Small Business Saturday

By Mac Frederick
Small Business Saturday is a Non-Profit Initiative that helps promote and support small business owners in the Philadelphia region. This idea stems from the American Express Small Business Saturday, the day after Black Friday, where Small Businesses are appreicated across the country.

We took this idea to the next level by producing a weekly video and podcast series that promotes and engages small business owners to tell their story about how they got started and what makes them unique. We do this completely for free, while also helping them market their business online.
