We are right in the midst of the holiday shopping season but there is still time for small business owners to boost sales using the power of Facebook marketing.
So want I wanted to do today was offer a list of very useful holiday Facebook marketing posts I have read recently that small business owners will find helpful to increase holiday sales.
In a recent study by Deloitte it is shown that 66 percent of consumers will shop local stores (small businesses and independent retailers) this holiday season and that local stores will make up 34 percent of consumers’ total holiday budget.
Shoppers really do want to support their local businesses instead of the big box stores and are on the look out for unique holiday gifts.
Your job as a small business owner is to the use the power of Facebook and other social media channels to show off your unique products and raise awareness of your local business to reach new customers and remind old customers you are still a great choice for their holiday shopping.
Here is a list of ten great posts I recommend reading that show small business Facebook page owners things they can do on their own pages now:
