The Go digital! team is definitely ready and eager to go out there and reach out to businesses.
Last week we went to Sheepshead Bay with Luc from The Chamber on the Go and observed how he was approaching business owners to inform them about his program and have them filling the survey.
This survey actually feeds our program Go digital! If an owner checks the “Are you interested in marketing your business through Yelp, social media & ExploreBK.com?” checkbox, then, we, the Go digital! team, will contact him to set up an appointment.
This is what we actually did last week: calling to leads that Luc provided. As a result, I have two appointments today in the neighborhood of Flatbush and will have another one this upcoming Monday. To help us support our visit, we finished last week to update the Curriculum. Additionally, we created and printed flyers to hand out in the neighborhood of our visit.
But if we are going to teach how to use Facebook and Google+, we also need to have our own socials! So we created the Go digital Facebook and Google+ pages. Like them, follow them, add them to your circles! You can also use the tag: #BrooklynGoDigital and make some buzz for us! Thanks.
Meanwhile, I am going to prepare for my today’s appointments. I will certainly post something afterwards to tell you about this first experience reaching out to small business owners. Which me good luck!
