Is your business or organization ready for the Holidays?
Host a Holiday event - invite customers to stop in for a special shopping experience, or an open house.
Create and promote a unique gift guide.
Customer appreciation: Thanksgiving and the holiday season is the perfect time to say thank you to those who make it possible. Want to promote your website or Facebook page? Post a coupon for visitors to the website, or a special just for Facebook fans.
Cross-promote: Small business owners and non-profits can partner to raise money or donations for the non-profit, while promoting the local business. For example, businesses can host a donation drive and offer a deal or drawing for those who donate to the non-profit. Make sure to have a plan on how both organizations will promote it, including on their website and social media pages. This is a great way to support a great cause, and promote the small business to new customers!
Small Business Saturday, November 30th: Great opportunity to promote how shopping local impacts the community. Learn more on their Facebook page, or website.
