How much business will slip past your store this Christmas?
This workshop takes you step-by-step through the best ways to grow your business this Christmas with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Maps and other social media. You don’t need a big advertising budget (or any budget). You don’t need to be a techie. You don’t even need a website!
Retailers are under huge Christmas pressure from both e-commerce stores and big chains with massive advertising budgets. Consumers still prefer to shop in store – but they plan their shopping online. If your shop does not have a compelling online presence, you are not going to get the traffic you need for a happy Christmas. The good news is that small retailers can achieve big things online, without breaking the bank. We’ll show you how.
The day after you leave this workshop, you will be able to start implementing a powerful social media plan that will bring customers into your shop.
You don't need to be an E-commerce retailer to be sharp online.
The topics covered include:
- Setting achievable goals
- Building a website for free in minutes
- Groundrules for social media marketing
- The smart way to use Facebook to grow
- Using YouTube to get attention
- Marketing with Twitter in ten minutes a day
- Your integrated social media plan
If you are a Shop Owner, Retail Marketer or Small-Medium Business Manager, best you take this course!
