The latest NCC newsletter has been released with lots of great information about upcoming training and events for members and the wider community in Northam.
Small Business Matters is launching its first ever Small Business Locator and a consumer competition to encourage shoppers to Think Small First.
Our aim is to dramatically change people’s mindsets about the value of our small businesses to our community. To do this we wanted to provide an avenue for small businesses to promote themselves and special offers for consumers.
Calling all shoppers… yep that’s you! In the lead up to Christmas… (Christmas is coming) we want you to Think Small First.
So we have introduced a new competition and built a WA Small Business Locator Map.
All shoppers that spend at least $10 in one of these participating small businesses, go in the draw to win $2,000* T & C’s apply
After you have shopped in participating small business, you will be given instructions and a special code on how to register online for the competition.
If you have a fav small business that is not on the map, tag them to get them involved, share here via facebook.
Let’s go shopping!
Small businesses can register their small business via here: http://smallbusinessmatters.net.au/page/small-business-locator
Every small business that registers also goes into a draw to win $500 – pretty good hey!! They also get sent a competition kit with all of the materials they will need. Attached is some more information. This is all possible because of Bankwest’s support. Download the Information Sheet here[Download not found]
