National Small Business Month

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!

    It’s great to see the Prez and the SBA get together and proclaim this as a celebration. I really believe that small businesses are the backbone of America and don’t get enough recognition for it. We hear about corporate greed and government being too big – but the small business man/woman – are the true patriots!

    “National Small Business Month” is an excellent blog post. And may I also say that I have been utilizing Webs.com since 2008 and I make use of the various free apps and particularly the blog app is extremely helpful. I highly recommend Webs.com to others. But especially to small businesses.

    Small business’s are the bread and butter of every Country, without them there would not be an economy, and the more support and recognition small business’s get the richer the economy will become. For many year’s the society only looked at the big picture rather than look at the smaller pieces that were put together to make that big picture. Small business’s also offer the personal touch and communication, which seems to be lost in these bigger interprises. Sometimes the only way to survie is to go back to basics, and start small and look after the pennies first before the pounds come in! Webs have a fantastic thing going on here, and you have opened a lot of doors for the small, new, and old business’s trying to make it in the big bad world. Every individual I meet now, that would like a website I tell them they must go to webs.com, because it is so easy to build your own website FREE, and actually start a business or promote your business without costing an arm and a leg. You will be seeing me soon for the whole package because I’ve been so impressed by the amount of visits my site is getting, that I am almost ready to take the next step!! Thanks a Mill

    This is a great event for small business entrepreneurs. It’s an event to be attended and the president should be commended for establishing it.
