If you are considering a focused local campaign for your small business and wondering how to best do it and what others are doing…rest easy, you’re not alone.
The future is social media…and the future of local marketing and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) are embedded in social media.
Most small retailers (57 percent) are planning local campaigns in 2011. One in five small retailers also say they plan to give more of their business to local businesses (20 percent) in 2011.
Local business is the push in America and local business is where you want to focus as a small or large business…think big but act local.
How does social media factor in?
Overall, half (51 percent) of small retailers will use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter for their businesses in 2011. Most retail small business owners expect to increase social media in 2011 (37 percent) or keep social media plans the same as 2010 (14 percent).
These numbers are only going to grow…so don’t wait until the numbers rise, because that is too late and you’ll have already lost the business.
