Chester MP, Chris Matheson, is championing an online campaign to promote local businesses ahead of Small Business Saturday on the 3rd December.
Chris said: “Small Business Saturday is an annual event celebrating local businesses. This year I am supporting a group of tweeters who are using their Twitter accounts to make recommendations about local businesses in the run up to the event this Saturday.”
The idea is the brain child of local web design agency @Twizzlebird and their associate @ConsultantMicro. Twitter users in Chester are invited to tweet support for their favourite local businesses, remembering to include the hashtag for Small Business Saturday. A suggested Tweet might be “As part of #SBS in #Chester on 3rd December, I recommend [local business] #experiencechester @ChrisM4Chester.”
Chris concluded: “Don’t forget to include me (@ChrisM4Chester) in your tweets so I can drop in and visit a few of these businesses myself. The important message to remember though is that in these difficult economic times, we need to support small businesses in our city all year round.”
