With Small Business Saturday taking place soon across the UK – mark your calendars for December 3rd – we’re celebrating the fantastic work that small businesses are doing across the UK. Most of us can think of an exciting new start-up or local independent favourite that has a special place in our hearts, and this is our chance to show these incredible businesses our appreciation.
This year, Small Business Saturday has once again announced its prestigious Small Biz 100, highlighting 100 amazing small businesses in the 100 days leading up to Small Business Saturday. Hot on the heels of this announcement, we’ve gone out to speak to some of our fantastic customers who have made this year’s list, to find out more about why celebrating small businesses is so important, why their data connection matters to them, and what they see as the future of small businesses.
The London Fashion Agency
The London Fashion Agency is the UK’s only agency dedicated to offering small businesses accessible and affordable PR. The London Fashion Agency provides exciting new independent brands PR retainers, subscriptions and resources at a fraction of the cost of traditional agencies. We spoke with Agency Director, Rosie Davies.
Why do you think it’s so important to celebrate the UK’s small businesses?
“Small businesses are the future. The London Fashion Agency and so many others are making waves in their respective industries, changing the way they work forever.”
How does your business make the most of its internet connection or telephone lines?
“We built our entire business using the internet. We taught ourselves to do everything from setting up our website to building our desks through online tutorials. We do PR the digital way, so without the internet there would be no London Fashion Agency.”
What do you think the future and new technology will mean for small businesses?
“True to London Fashion Agency ethos, new technology is making industries more accessible for small businesses. Large corporations used to be untouchable – with the internet, small businesses are able to access tools and information that were never available before.”
