Are you celebrating National Small Business Week in your online business?

If not, it’s not too late to start!

This year, the event runs from May 5th through the 11th, and it is the perfect opportunity to celebrate your own small business and grow your customer base.

Here are a few quick and easy ways your business can celebrate.

Share Your Story

Sharing your business’ story is one of the best and easiest ways to celebrate National Small Business Week. You started your online business for a reason, and that reason is probably still what drives you to get out of bed every morning. Tell the world your “why” and why it’s so important to you.

You don’t have to be an amazing writer to tell your story. A few paragraphs about why you launched your business, why you’re passionate about what you do, and why you keep working to improve your company is all you need.

Expand Your Knowledge

In honor of National Small Business Week, the Small Business Administration and Constant Contact are offering a wide range of free webinars, seminars, and one-on-one coaching sessions. Whether you are interested in learning more about search engine optimization, social media, or email marketing, this week is the perfect time to gain some new knowledge.

Several other coaches and entrepreneurs are offering free and discounted trainings throughout the week, too. Check in with some of your favorites to see what they have going on. You may be able to score a great deal on a training that you’ve had your eye one.

Say “Thank You”

Without your customers, you wouldn’t have a business. Use this week as an opportunity to reach out to them and extend your gratitude. Consider sending out an email with a coupon code that can be used in your online shop this week. You could also offer a freebie along with any orders placed during the week.

Don’t forget to thank the other people who have helped you build a successful business. Take time to show your employees a bit of appreciation. Have a mentor who has helped you out along the way? Make sure to thank them, too.

Chances are, making your business possible takes a lot of people. Small Business Week is a great time to let them know that they are appreciated. Sending tokens of your gratitude or even hopping online and posting a “thank you” video is a great way to make your appreciation known.
