Promoting Your Local Business

Did you catch my most recent episode of ‘Mel’s Weekly Instagram Live Show’ where I reeled off a list of super-handy list of marketing ideas for businesses that serve a local community?  This is the perfect episode for those of you with a brick and mortar business, or those that offer a service to a local clientele, such as:

  • Florists
  • Hairdressers
  • Nail technicians
  • Makeup artists
  • Wedding planners
  • Photographers
  • Brand ambassadors
  • Anyone in the hospitality industry
  • Shop owners
  • Along with plenty more of you!

If you didn’t manage to catch it, I have great news for you! You can catch the replay on Instagram in our IGTV channel here.

Here’s a sneak peek at a few marketing ideas that were discussed in the episode:

  • Press releases in local magazines and newspapers (being featured in an article, as opposed to in a paid advert)
  • Noticeboards in cafes, supermarkets, community centres, village halls, schools, etc.
  • Offering incentives to encourage customer referrals
  • Facebook selling sites
  • Discussing local events/ news/ sporting events on Twitter
  •  Sponsoring local events / charity events (or hosting your own!)
This and more marketing ideas for local businesses in the IGTV episode. Or you can download the full list here 😉
The next episode is on Tuesday 01 DEC, 2PM GMT with the topic ‘Blogging & Vlogging – Does This really Help?’. Set your reminder now to join me live on Instagram!
See you soon!
