A Guide to Elevating Small Businesses This Small Business Saturday https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6885-a-guide-to-elevating-small-businesses-this-small-business-saturday6885-a-guide-to-elevating-small-businesses-this-small-business-saturday https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/life/6885-a-guide-to-elevating-small-businesses-this-small-business-saturday6885-a-guide-to-elevating-small-businesses-this-small-business-saturday

Today, November 25, 2024, marks the celebration of Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting and showcasing the incredible small businesses that make our community unique. As we dive into the holiday season, let's take a moment to appreciate the charm and character that local businesses bring to our neighborhoods.

What is Small Business Saturday?

Small Business Saturday, nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to promoting and supporting small businesses in our community. This initiative, first introduced in 2010 by American Express, encourages shoppers to shift their focus from big-box retailers to the local shops that add vibrancy and personality to our towns and cities.

How to Support Small Businesses Today:

  1. Shop Local: The most direct way to support small businesses is by shopping locally. Take a stroll through our community or our online local vendors and explore the unique products and services offered by your neighborhood shops. From handmade crafts to one-of-a-kind gifts, you're sure to find something special for everyone on your holiday list.

  2. Dine at Local Restaurants: Consider dining at a locally-owned restaurant today. Many eateries offer delicious dishes made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. By choosing local restaurants, you not only enjoy a unique dining experience but also contribute to the success of small business owners.

  3. Spread the Word: Help boost the visibility of your favorite local businesses by sharing your experiences on social media. Use the hashtag #ShopSmall and let your friends and family know about the fantastic finds and excellent services available in our community.

  4. Purchase Gift Cards: If you're not sure what to buy, consider purchasing gift cards from local businesses. This allows your loved ones to choose their own unique items while supporting the community.

  5. Attend Local Events: Check out any special events or promotions hosted by small businesses in the area. Many businesses may offer discounts, live entertainment, or other festivities to make your Small Business Saturday experience even more enjoyable.

You can also support a small business without spending money. Show your love for local businesses by engaging with them on social media. Leave positive reviews on platforms like Yelp, Google, or Facebook. Like, comment, and share their posts to help increase their online visibility. Additionally, consider suggesting local businesses in relevant Facebook groups, helping others discover the hidden gems in our community.

This Small Business Saturday, let's come together as a community to celebrate the local businesses that make our town special. By choosing to shop and dine locally, we not only find unique treasures but also contribute to the growth and success of the entrepreneurs who shape the character of our community. Need help finding a local business? Reach out to our Chamber of Commerce!

Remember, every purchase made at a local business and every positive interaction on social media is a vote for the continued vibrancy of our community. So, get out there, explore the treasures of our town, and make this Small Business Saturday a day to remember!

Leave your favorite small business in the comments below!

As we gather around the table with family and friends, our hearts swell with gratitude for the moments that make life truly special. This Thanksgiving, let's embrace the warmth of togetherness, the joy of shared laughter, and the comfort of cherished traditions

In the spirit of the season, did you know that Benjamin Franklin once proposed the turkey as the national bird of the United States? While the bald eagle ultimately won that debate, let's take a moment to appreciate our feathered friends and the quirky historical twists that add flavor to our Thanksgiving celebrations.

From our HamletHub family to yours, we extend our heartfelt wishes for a Thanksgiving overflowing with warmth, love, and moments that create lasting memories. Thank you for being a part of our community, and may your holiday be filled with the essence of gratitude and the joy of the season.

FTC Announces 'Voice Clone Challenge' https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/publicsafety/6874-ftc-announces-voice-clone-challenge6874-ftc-announces-voice-clone-challenge https://news.hamlethub.com/yorktown/publicsafety/6874-ftc-announces-voice-clone-challenge6874-ftc-announces-voice-clone-challenge

Voice cloning technologies can generate a near-perfect voice clone based on a short audio clip or snippet of someone’s voice. The technology has potential to help people—for example, people who've lost their ability to speak, offering them a powerful and valuable means of communication. But, in the wrong hands, voice cloning technologies can do harm.

Take, for example, the family emergency scam, where an impostor pretends to be a distressed relative. A scammer could clone a voice that sounds just like your loved one. Scammers could also clone the voice of a CEO or other company executive. Then trick employees into transferring large sums of money or to pay a fake invoice.

As part of its ongoing focus on these issues, the FTC is announcing the Voice Cloning Challenge — a call-to-action to innovators to develop solutions that protect consumers from voice cloning harms. The winner will take home a prize of $25,000.

Participants can start working on their submissions now! The FTC will accept submissions online from January 2 to 12, 2024.The FTC will announce winners after submissions are judged. For answers to frequently asked questions, entrance details, and more, see the Voice Cloning Challenge page.
