The campaign will shed light on the key role small businesses play in strengthening local communities, as well as the U.S. economy as a whole.

Mediaplanet today announces the launch of its cross-platform campaign "Small Business Recovery." By collaborating with the industry’s most respected business leaders, this campaign will explore the issues small businesses are currently facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Small Business Recovery” addresses a range of topics, including leveling the business playing field, digital tools and why they are essential for survival, getting grants for digital export strategies, why small businesses need to go global, and how small businesses can acquire and better manage capital (authored by industry leaders like Gary Vaynerchuk, Kevin O’Leary, Ramit Sethi, Robin Sharma, Melissa Butler, and more).

The campaign will shed light on the key role small businesses play in strengthening local communities, as well as the U.S. economy as a whole. It will highlight the resources available that are allowing people of all genders, race, and backgrounds to grow their businesses — whether brick-and-mortar, totally online, or a combination of the two.

The print component of "Small Business Recovery" is distributed in today's edition of USA TODAY in the New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, South Florida, Washington DC, Boston, Denver, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, and Philadelphia markets. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.
