Small Business Saturday – The Next Generation of Support

Today is November 24th, 2012 and it is Small Business Saturday!  What this means is consumers are encouraged to support local small businesses and shop small.  This is really great that American Express has developed a very effective marketing campaign that helps local small business during a time of the year in which sales may be on the decline.  The best part about Small Business Saturday is this day falls right between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  This gives small business a great promotional push without having to spend the little cash these small bushiness might have for marketing efforts.  So visiting that delicious small family owned restaurant down the street would be a VERY wise decision today 🙂

Innovations to Appreciate:

Where/Who?
– gas station companies

Innovative Feature:
-adding mounted TVs on-top of gas station pumps that feature specific local advertisements along with local weather and national news.

Why I Think This Marketing Move is So Great?
– when you think about it , this is a very simple feature to add to gas stations. Adding TVs would satisfy an obvious need and opportunity that would engage gas station customers while there standing there pumping gas with nothing else to do. This is a great strategic placement and move from a lot of gas station companies. I really enjoy the fact gas stations are now added TVs to their gas pumps, before I really hated pumping gas , this added entertainment feature eases the disliking I have when fueling up my car. SMART IDEA, should of been done a long time ago.

There is also even more possibilities that marketers can harness with the increasing amount of gas stations that feature a TV on their pumps for customers viewing pleasure. These added TVs to gas stations also create a great place for local businesses and organizations to advertise directly to a specific demographic/geographic location.
