The Economy of Shopping Small Report from American Express has shown that Aussies like to support small businesses, and communities benefit from small businesses thriving. How you can encourage your community to Shop Small.
How everyday consumers feel about local small businesses.
Australian consumers like small businesses, and they love being able to support them. According to the report:
Australian small business owners love their communities, and they deliberately build their businesses in a way that can benefit the communities they live and work in.
But there are certainly some challenges facing small business owners in Australia. The things business owners worry the most about are the increasing costs and overheads of running their small business (82%); the economic climate in Australia (76%); and the future cash flow of their business (74%).
Thankfully, small business owners can combat these money worries by encouraging more of their local community to Shop Small. You can also compare business financial products on the Canstar website, to make sure the costs of doing your business banking are as low as possible.
How communities benefit from small businesses.
Encouraging your community to Shop Small in November.
In November 2015, American Express is joining consumers and companies alike to join their Shop Small campaign, and championing the “small heroes” of their community. American Express will give a $10 statement credit to Card Members (cardholders) up to 10 times in November if they register their card and spend $20 or more at participating businesses.
