Shop Russellville First
In recognition of Global Entrepreneurship 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 Area Chamber of Commerce, the Arkansas Tech Small Business and Technology Development Center, and Main Street Russellville.
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, #GEW2018, and #ShopSmall. We are also encouraging patrons to post selfies of themselves while shopping, including the recommended hashtags and tagging their business. While GEW is November 12 - 18, we are celebrating our local businesses through Small Business Saturday, November 24. We hope you join us as we “Shop Russellville First!”
