Thanksgiving is Thursday, and you know what that means: once the turkey and pumpkin pie are gone, the holiday shopping season officially begins. Businesses of all sizes will be trying to get the attention of shoppers. Lucky for you, research shows that 61% of shoppers are open to buying from new retailers during the holiday season. Help your business get noticed by checking out the newly launched social post styles from Small Thanks, our hub for free marketing materials featuring information about your business and reviews from your customers.
When it comes to discovering new stores, online reviews have become today’s word of mouth. You can turn your customers into advocates by showcasing your business’s real Google reviews with new seasonal posts from Small Thanks. Share these on your social media channels and as posts on your Business Profile on Google, so they’ll be seen by potential customers in Google Search and Maps.
It’s important to grab the attention of shoppers online, even if you’re a local business. Last holiday season, 78% of shoppers who visited a store turned to online search first. Show those potential customers that you meet their needs by sharing a social post from Small Thanks that highlights your business's unique attributes—such as gift wrapping services or a kid-friendly environment. That way, you'll be on their radar when they're ready to shop.
And if you’re looking for even more ways to add some flair to your social media, check out the new #SmallThanks GIPHY stickers. However your business chooses to get the word out this season, we hope these new visuals give you a few more options to reach holiday shoppers.
