Three unique ways franchisees can use social media to reach local customers

Reaching new local consumers and building brand loyalty with existing customers is probably the number one goal for franchisees looking to establish a stronger local presence. Reaching consumers within a seven to 20-mile radius using social media is easier said than done. If successfully achieved, it could mean more seat fillers; increased traffic through your doors; and sales growth.

Here are three quick and unique ways you can use social media to reach local customers.

Yelp Events

Yelp is known for their reviews, but also for their community of highly engaged local users and the Yelp Elite Squad. Members of this exclusive, in-the-know crew reveal hot spots for fellow locals, act as city ambassadors, and are the true heart of the Yelp community -both on and offline.  Get connected with your local Yelp community manager and find out about their localized events and how you can host at your location. Hosting an exclusive Yelp event at your business like this one done by CREAM (http://sociallybuzz.com/sites/default/files/uploads/case-studies/using-yelp-increase-brand-awareness.pdf) will give specific Yelp Elites one-on-one personalized time with your brand and products, which can blossom into the ultimate free word-of-mouth local marketing.

 

Foursquare

Foursquare helps people find the perfect places to go with friends. You can utilize the existing customers that are already using Foursquare at your location to connect with their friends and family.

First thing you need to do is claim your location on Foursquare. Upon claiming your location, you will get access to a list of tools to help you determine who’s checking in at your business along with how and where they are sharing their experience. When logged in, navigate to see customer stats, then click on real world analytics on the top right. Scroll to the bottom to see a list of your most recent visitors and top visitors that check-in at your location.

Foursquare allows you to click on the respective customer’s profile to see how active or engaged they are as well as the additional social platforms they use. If they are connected to Twitter,  you can tweet them a thank you message for stopping by.  More times than not, they will retweet the message to their followers and friends – so make sure your message is short, sweet and to the point! This can also lead to free word-of-mouth local marketing, helping you to reach other potential local customers.

Instagram

Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way for people to visually share their life with friends and family. Your customers are capturing hundreds of photos and videos of your business and products. It’s your job to turn those photos and videos into meaningful content marketing.

To reach local customers, while logged in your business’ Instagram account, click on the icon to the far right on the Instagram toolbar located at the bottom ( will be the circular icon with three lines within a box) which will take you to your profile. Click on the “Photos of You” icon (the icon with the profile face in a box) located on the far right.

“Photos of You” is a way for your customers to share and discover your business on Instagram. When a customer uploads a photo of your brand or products, they can tag your business’ Instagram profile to that photo. When you’re on the “Photos of you” page, you will see photos uploaded by existing customers. Click on each image and engage with those customers, leave a short thank you message, like their page or even follow them. Customers gets excited when businesses engage with them and they will engage more with your brand.

The more they engage with your brand on Instagram, the more their friends will see your business name and photos. You can also utilize the “Photo Map” to engage with customers that add your business  as a location to their photo. This is another way to receive free word-of-mouth local marketing from your customers.

Although social media marketing sounds easy, it can get a little time consuming. Investing this time into your business to localize your marketing initiative can reap lots of great benefits (from new customers to local brand awareness). Each situation and franchise is unique, but following the steps above will help jump start the process of reaching new local customers to help you build, engage and grow your business using social media.

BUZZ: Introducing Yelp Platform! Transactions Made Easy, Directly Through Yelp

Yelp connects people with great local businesses, giving users plenty of information to make spending decisions and allowing them to share those experiences online. What about those times when you discover a great business and want to book it directly on Yelp? Well, great news:  They recently launched Yelp Platform, a new way to transact on Yelp.

They’ll be rolling out Yelp Platform category by category, beginning today with food delivery and pickup. Starting now, people can order food directly from a select number of restaurants supported by delivery.com and Eat24, like NYC’s Harry’s Italian Pizza Bar and Layaly Mediterranean Grill in SF. Eventually, consumers will be able to order whatever meal they’re craving for delivery or pickup at thousands of local restaurants across the US, directly from those businesses’ Yelp listings.

In the coming months, They’ll add categories like spas, yoga studios, salons and dentist appointments starting with Booker, Intuit’s Demandforce and MINDBODY. Consumers can expect YELP to add more categories in the future.

Yelp Platform Yelp Platform

As they continue to roll this feature out, Yelp Platform will eventually make it a whole lot easier to do everything from scheduling spa treatments and yoga sessions to making dentist appointments and purchasing services, directly through Yelp!

Yelp Platform is available on iOS, mobile web or desktop (and coming soon for Android). So whip out your mobile device or jump on your computer to satisfy that burrito craving with just a few clicks. We know people want an easy, streamlined consumer experience, and Yelp Platform is the next step in directly connecting users with millions of great local businesses.

BUZZ: New Yelp Feature Takes Consumers from Browsing to Buying

Consumers come to Yelp ready to make a spending decision and they rely on Yelp’s wealth of valuable content to find a local business to fit their needs. Today we’re introducing a new feature for business owners, designed to further close the loop between discovering a business on Yelp and making a purchase at that business. Yelp’s new Call to Action feature allows business owners to promote a desired transaction of their choosing directly on their Yelp business listing.

YELP

According to a recent BCG study, advertisers on Yelp report seeing an average of $23,000 in annual revenue from the site. Yelp’s Call to Action feature, available now to Yelp advertisers, is designed to increase the revenue potential Yelp provides to business owners, with the ability to promote a specific action they’d like consumers to take. The Call to Action feature will take consumers seamlessly from a business’ Yelp listing to the the business’ own website to complete the transaction — be it scheduling an appointment, printing a coupon, buying tickets to see ‘N Sync (still holding out hope for a reunion tour!), or any other action a business wants to promote.

Ticketmaster, the global leader in event ticketing and one of the world’s top five e-Commerce businesses, was one of the first companies to launch with Yelp’s Call to Action pilot program. By implementing the feature on Yelp listings for over 2,000 of its live entertainment venues across the US and Canada, consumers are taken from a venue’s listing directly to the Ticketmaster site where they can buy tickets to upcoming events. As Ticketmaster’s President of North America, Jared Smith, puts it, “Yelp is a great platform that many of our clients use to help their fans discover and gather information about live events. We’re excited to have developed a strategic partnership with Yelp to help our clients capture this demand and make the event discovery and ticket buying process easier for Yelp’s 102 million monthly unique visitors*.”

YELP CALL TO ACTION

The Call to Action feature will work on both desktop and mobile, reaching Yelp users through all avenues, including the approximately 10 million monthly unique mobile devices using the app.
