“Black Friday”: Not Just One day a Year
We are all painfully aware that economic conditions impact all businesses, and that small businesses feel the impact of economic changes much quicker than their larger counterparts.
As you know, and maybe are experiencing right now, a downward economic cycle can have a severe and lasting impact on your business.
The Economic "Snowball Effect"
No doubt your small business is facing a number of challenges during the current economic slowdown.
Let’s face it, marketing, in itself, is expensive. Many small business owners and service providers like you are scrambling to find less costly ways to market their wares and themselves to as many local customers as they can with as little expense as they can.
Maybe you're one of the small businesses owners who have been forced to downsize. Downsizing contributes to the unemployment rate. High unemployment slows the economy...a snowball in the making.
Probably the majority of your customers are concerned about their jobs so are more likely to be cautious with their spending, leading to decreased revenue for your small business....and we have the slushy economies snowball effect on your business.

When a non-profit creates an organizational profile, once approved, their organization will be placed on ReciProty’s non-profit donation list. This gives service or retail providers the opportunity to donate a certain percentage of the sale to a non-profit of the purchaser’s choice. Retailers and businesses also have the option to donate a percentage of the sale to a non-profit that they have on record. I LOVE that!
