Advice from the US Chamber for Small Business this Holiday Season
A new report from Intuit QuickBooks shows a unique opportunity for small businesses during Small Business Season. Based on survey results from 5,500 consumers and 1,500 businesses, consumers are planning to spend “over 40% of their holiday shopping budget at small businesses” — an estimated total of $88 billion! Because of this, the US Chamber suggests, “it’s the perfect time for small businesses to lean heavily into their holiday marketing campaigns and possibly even launch a new product in time for the season of giving. With heightened inflation and supply chain challenges, ensure your business is considering affordable shipping options, providing efficient customer service, and selling products on multiple channels.”

It's even more meaningful to support small businesses now as many still face challenges from the pandemic like soaring inflation, worker shortages and supply chain disruptions.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is encouraging consumers to shop small every day to support small businesses and fuel the economy during the holiday season. Here are five reasons you should make shopping small a priority during the holidays—and beyond.
