It’s November 1, and that means we can start talking about Small Business Saturday! For me, this is the Christmas, Black Friday and New Year’s Eve, all rolled up into one. Fun Fact: From my days working in NYC advertising, I know two people personally involved in the creation of Small Business Saturday …it’s a great idea and I am proud to support it!
Why Small Business Saturday? I love the fact that it reminds and encourages all of us to #thinklocal, #shoplocal and #shopsmall. When it comes to choosing a travel agent, travelers get a LOT of benefits for shopping small!
For a travel agent, finding the right Small Business Saturday promotion can be kind of tricky. Since I spend most of my days planning destination weddings, family vacations and group vacations in Mexico and the Caribbean, I would LOVE to give away trips to everyone! Unfortunately, that is not very realistic.
In the past, I have done giveaways to celebrate Small Business Saturday. The giveaways are great, but let’s face it… free stuff is really only exciting for the person who WINS the free stuff!
This year, I think I have found a creative way to spread the love. I am focusing on THREE ways for you and your friends to learn and experience all the ways that working with a travel agent can benefit YOU! From now until November 19*, here’s how Alpaca Your Bags Travel will celebrate Small Business Saturday!
*One comment you may be thinking: “Ashley, if Small Business Saturday is Nov 25, why are you ending the promotion on November 19?” GREAT QUESTION 🙂 That is because I have Thanksgiving week plans that limit my access to internet and phone. Rather than create disappointment, I am cutting off the promo at November 19. That still gives you almost THREE WEEKS to take advantage!
As an award-winning boutique travel agency, Alpaca Your Bags Travel is the fun, off-beat, tech-savvy alternative travel agency modern couples trust with their destination weddings and celebrations. We’ve got your back, so you can breathe easy and enjoy your day in paradise.
