Do you run out of ideas when posting on Facebook & Instagram?
If you post on social media just one time a day, 7 days a week, you are sharing 365 posts per year. If you post twice a day, you are sharing 730 posts per year!
This list will help you all year long - just print it, post it somewhere and use the list to spark some creativity and posting throughout the year.
Your Facebook Business Page is free and a great resource and tool to reach your customers and potential customers.
Use this checklist to ensure you have optimized your Facebook Page!
You should consider your email list as GOLD. Why? Because once your customers voluntarily provide you with their email addresses, this is data that can't be taken away from you.
You don't own Facebook or Instagram. So even though you have the privilege to post to your business accounts every day, nothing is guaranteed. We've all heard the horror stories of people accumulating thousands of followers to just one day find their whole account is gone and they don't know why.
I highly encourage all shop owners to own their own data - your customer's email addresses should be at the top of the list!

Retail store owners are extremely busy so you if you're looking to sell your products in brick and mortar stores, it's ideal if you can provide a quick visual of products with wholesale pricing.
You risk losing a wholesale order when you aren't prepared.
