Omaha, Nebraska – Nebraska Small Business Development Center (SBDC), a program of Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC), is pleased to announce a social media campaign to support small businesses across the state. The campaign, Support Small Businesses 5 Day Challenge, is a way that everyone can support small businesses from the safety of their home.
"We are so grateful for the partnership with America's SBDC Iowa for sharing this social media campaign. Thank you to Lisa Shimkat, State Director and her team for creating a way to support all small businesses", said Catherine Lang, State Director, NBDC.
The 6-part video series will consist of an announcement video on Sunday, April 26, and then a daily challenge the rest of the week. Examples of the challenge include tagging small businesses on social media, purchasing gift cards, writing online reviews, and sending caring messages to small business owners.
To participate, follow the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Linkedin. With each daily challenge, NBDC encourages followers to share posts to personal timelines and groups to help increase reach. The goal is to get engagement by having followers support Nebraska small businesses by completing each challenge and commenting on the NBDC post. NBDC hopes these challenges provide support to our local small businesses across the state. The hashtag for the campaign also has an encouraging message of #Back2Biz.
