As a company that serves local business owners and customers, Ripl is proud to join with American Express to support the 10th annual Small Business Saturday® this Nov 30.

Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to help strengthen local economies. Today it’s a holiday shopping tradition and part of a nationwide Shop Small® Movement dedicated to supporting all kinds of small businesses. From the corner store to your favorite diner to a trendy online boutique, it’s unique small businesses like yours that help local communities stay vibrant.

Participating in Small Business Saturday is a great way to reach new customers and promote your business. Here are some tips for getting involved on Nov 30:

  • Let your customers know that you plan to participate in Small Business Saturday. Visit for free promotional assets, such as ready-made social posts, to show your support.

  • Connect with your community. Contact your local chamber of commerce to see how your business can participate in Small Business Saturday events and promotions.

  • If you’re a qualified American Express® Card-accepting merchant, you can get recommended to potential customers simply because you welcome the Card. Learn more at

For Small Business Saturday, you can use Ripl to create promotional social media posts for your business. Create fun images and videos that you can use to advertise your special deals!

If you anticipate being busy in the upcoming week, we’d suggest using Ripl Pro to schedule your Shop Small social media posts in advance. We’ll automatically post for you when the time comes!
