We’re inviting everyone to give thanks to their favorite small businesses in the U.S., and they could even receive marketing support from Google.
Here’s how you can show love for your favorite small businesses:
Post indoor photos of your favorite small businesses on Twitter or Instagram from today through December 31st.
Tell the story of why you’re thankful for this business and/or its owners in the caption.
Include #SmallThanks and tag @google in your post.
Invite your friends and followers to do the same.
Select businesses will be equipped with marketing resources to make the most of digital tools to grow their business.They could also be featured in our promotions over the next several months.
Highlight a business where you’re a regular, like your gym, bakery, cafe, dentist, or hardware store.
Post about businesses that have been a part of your community for a long time and any interesting traditions they have. Think about places in your current town, where you grew up, or where you like to visit.
Think about local business owners who give back and share how they make your community better.
Is there something you can’t go without when you’re out and about in your neighborhood? Let people in on your local favorites by giving them a shoutout.
November and December are also full of fun national days, such as National Gingerbread House Day (Dec 12th). Post about your favorite businesses that line up with these fun holidays.
