Thanks to American Express, Saturday is being declared "Small Business Saturday. President Obama is a big promoter:
“From the mom-and-pop storefront shops that anchor Main Street to the high-tech startups that keep America on the cutting edge, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstones of our Nation’s promise. Through events such as Small Business Saturday, we keep our local economies strong and help maintain an American economy that can compete and win in the 21st century.” President Obama via ABC News

When I won a $25 American Express gift card as a Klout perk, I was inspired to create a special Small Business Saturday offer for small businesses.
As a small business owner for over 20 years, I like to give back to the community.
From now through cyber Monday, November 28, I'm offering a $300 discount on my December Lock In LinkedIn course for people and their companies.
Instead of paying $497, the Lock In LinkedIn Workshop price drops way down to $197.
That's like having a $300 gift card! After that, the price goes back up to $497.
Lock In Linked Power Strategies Workshop teaches
what you need to do to raise your visibility and influence
why you need a social media strategy that supports your small business
how to maximize your efforts and minimize your social networking time
where to find connections that get you closer to your goals
leadership strategies that position you as an expert
To register for the December Lock In LinkedIn course click here on the orange LockIn LinkedIn box and use code smallbizsatli for a $300 savings.
Thanks so much to American Express for leading this effort and to all of our small business clients who give us the honor of managing their marketing and messaging.
