I have been meaning to do a blog on this for quite some time and finally found some free quality "blogging" time to do it. Wow!! This was truly amazing!! I had been avoiding to be on TV like the plague & leave it to Lisa Martinez of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership to get us to go LIVE, and she did it!! Lol. It was more like a statement than a request to do it but, I am SO GLAD I DID, so THANK YOU LISA!!!
The promotion was for "Bring a Friend" which was a great promotion that the Downtown Sacramento Partnership Organization created for Downtown Sacramento businesses & Old Sacramento businesses. The idea was to shop local & shop small to help support small business, so if you went alone you would only receive 10% off but if you brought a friend you AND your friend would BOTH save 20%.
The promotion went on from Thursday, September 13 through Saturday, September 22 and it definitely generated a lot of great traffic, sales & promotion. What I liked too was that a lot of different small businesses (especially in Old Sac) participated and U.BE.U. FASHION along with Mea Vita boutique were able to do a short segment on it on Good Day Sacramento.
Downtown Sacramento Partnership Organization is a wonderful Outreach Organization that helps market & promote small businesses in the Sacramento area. They have been a blessing to all of us struggling entrepreneurs in coming up with great ideas like this to help keep us all afloat. From U.BE.U. FASHION, we thank you so much!!
