Shop Russellville First!
In recognition of Global Entrepreneur Week (GEW) we invite you to participate in the “Shop Russellville First” campaign. GEW is a week long series of activities in over 100 countries designed to support the startup movement and small businesses. “Shop Russellville First” is a social media marketing project to encourage our community to shop locally before going online or to another city. This is a collaborative effort between the Russellville Chamber of Commerce, Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center, and Arkansas Tech University.
We have provided different sized images to use on your business’ social media outlets encouraging your patrons to “Shop Russellville First.” We encourage your posts to include the hashtags #ShopRsvlFirst and #GEW2017. We are also encouraging patrons to post selfies of themselves while shopping, including the recommended hashtags and tagging the business. While GEW is November 13 – 17, we are celebrating our local businesses through Small Business Saturday, November 25. We hope you join us as we “Shop Russellville First!”
