This year, President Obama and the U.S. Small Business Administration will proclaim the week of May 16th to May 20th as National Small Business Week to acknowledge and appreciate all that small businesses do for America, including spur innovation, create jobs, and make the US economy more competitive.
Did you know:
- There are an estimated 27.2 million small businesses in America
- More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business
- Small businesses create 60-80% of new jobs in the country
We here at Webs have decided to extend the week-long celebration into a month-long celebration because so many Webs users are also small business owners.
Webs users are clearly savvy entrepreneurs, as they understand the importance of creating, launching, and maintaining a great business website. We do our best to support them by offering features needed by business websites, from memorable custom domain names to professional-looking email addresses to apps for Web Stores and Mobile Websites.
Stay tuned, because throughout the month we’ll be posting articles to this blog with advice and tips for small business growth. And let us know in the comments section how you’ll be celebrating National Small Business Month!
