Using Social Media to promote your business

The day has come when businesses are actively promoting their own business and events around the town that will impact their business today and hopefully for the future.

Saturday 7th December is also Small Business Saturday UK, showing support to all those small businesses up and down the country.

Here today in Petworth we are expecting a large number of people to visit the town and show their support to all our small independent retailers. We will be having christmas carols, late night shopping, father christmas grotto and the all important Christmas lights switch on. The town will be alive and thriving.

Many residents are aware of this event today, through the large number of signs around the town and posters in shop windows, but the biggest way to broadcast the Petworth town christmas lights switch on, has to be through Social media, we are all tweeting, posting, connecting to each other around the town to help boost the presences of the Petworth to everyone who could and would like to visit Petworth at some point today.  

Using the Hashtags, #Petworthlights and #Latenightshopping is working well. Encouraging businesses to use these two hashtags allows us to see how far the tweets are reaching and it give us some way of knowing who is interacting with Twitter. Between Dec 3rd and Dec 7th morning we are reaching over 10K accounts. #Latenightshopping has a much broader reach due to the key word that it is, but we are noticing tweets with many of the Petworth businesses. 

Social media is always going to have positives and negatives, but when you can use it to boost your town presences and ultimately draw crowds to you, it is surely a positive. Using your social media accounts to promote your business is something I can train you in,  or  I can manage this for you.

Social Media Sussex offers social media training and social media managed services which will help your business grow and reach new audiences.
