There more than 30 million small businesses in the United States, according to the Small Business Administration.
Most of us would have a hard time imagining our communities without the small businesses that make it uniquely ours. From independent bookstores, to coffee shops, yoga studios and pizza joints… local businesses need the support of their neighbors like never before this shopping season.
For the past two decades, roughly 65% of new jobs created were in those small businesses.
#ShopLocal and #EatLocal aren’t just slogans, they are the key to a thriving economy.
In 2020, we know for sure that connection is critical. And Kinetic Business by Windstream to proud to partner with businesses during their pivots to accommodate a new online-heavy presence as well as their in-person re-opening.
Folks like Renee Sobotka, who owns a digital marketing agency in Lincoln, Nebraska called True North Technologies. She’s been using solutions like Office Suite HD Meeting to not only keep her business going, but also grow it during the pandemic. She’s also worked with other businesses to show them how to pivot during this uncertain time.
We installed ultra-fast fiber internet to the Best Small Town Bar In Iowa, Cellar Peanut Pub in Pella, to get their customers strong entertainment and Wi-Fi options while enjoying their award winning Bloody Marys in the expanded space to allow for social distancing.
In Lexington, Kentucky, we upgraded the business broadband speed at World’s Apart gift shop so owner Howard Rackmil could make better use of his social media live streaming sales events and online sales to keep his business going.
Kinetic Business by Windstream is here to support our community partners in 2020 and every successful year to come. We may be spread across 18 states, but we continue to #ShopLocal, #EatLocal and #BuyLocal in the communities we serve.
