The Independents’ Day campaign aims to encourage customers to shop local and buy from their local supplier. This is beneficial as for every £1 you spend in your local business between 50p-70p circulates back into your local economy.
Last year (2014) the campaign was supported by Theo Paphitis and had really good social media coverage. This year the keynote speaker for iDay is Gary Gerber the founder and Chief Dream Officer for The Power Practice.
This year, Independents Day will be focusing on the importance of additional products and services that independents can offer.
Throughout the day leading UK independent resellers will share their individual approaches so that more independent companies can adapt to it and make theirs and other peoples businesses the best they can be.
This year is the 10 year anniversary of Independents’ Day!
Make sure to use the hashtags #indieday and #shoplocal if you will be supporting this campaign with social media, so this gets the word out to everyone about Independents’ Day.
