BROOKLYN, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After Black Friday, one e-commerce site aims to support thousands of small businesses through a special initiative. Lifestyle e-commerce site AHAlife.com will host a special Small Business Saturday, featuring products from 4,000+ small designers, artisans and independent brands from more than 45 countries. The site aims to bring attention to the work and products of these specialized artisans.
"We are kicking off a series of initiatives and promotions to support shopping small, ranging from discounts to spotlighting small businesses," said CEO and Founder Shauna Mei. "This notion of buying fewer but better items, from artisans, craftspeople and brands who offer a unique product with a story is what we are all about. We champion small businesses every day of the year, so it only made sense to tie into Small Business Saturday in a more meaningful way." AHA also will offer Small Business Saturday shoppers 10 percent off their next purchase on the site. Additionally, the e-commerce marketplace will conduct a series of targeted emails to its over 1 million members, and extend a special offer to customers on Cyber Monday, November 28. AHA is considered an incubator of sorts for small designers and brands looking to get their products and message out to a global audience. By providing these small businesses a mix of marketing, technology and customer service tools they would otherwise not necessarily be able to afford or execute on their own, AHA allows these brands to focus what they do best: create. The result is a launch platform which has enabled brands to grow infinitely, many of them generating millions of dollars in business and growing their distribution channels globally.
