After the Thanksgiving holidays, and between Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, comes a more personal shopping holiday vital to small businesses and local economies – Small Business Saturday.

St. Petersburg’s Shopapalooza, now in its 12e year, will spotlight approximately 365 local small businesses and creators when it returns to Vinoy Park this weekend. Event organizer Ester Venouziou said the festival is a way for people to make sure their money stays in the community.

A study by American Express showed that 68 cents of every dollar spent in a small business stays in the community and creates an additional 48 cents in the area’s financial activity through the purchase of goods and services by employees and the owners. The study also found that if every Gen Z and Millennial shopper spent $10 this Saturday on small businesses, it would generate $2 billion in local economic activity.

Conversely, Venouziou said only 30 cents of every dollar spent at business outlets is returned to the community.

“It’s a staggering number,” she said. “It allows the money to flow locally, so it’s a bigger impact. It won’t just end up being $10 – it’s $10 that recirculates again because small businesses are more likely to spend it on other local businesses.

Founder Ester Venouziou said she rented special furniture for a “cold” area.

Venouziou founded LocalShops1, a business directory that hosts Shopapalooza every Thanksgiving weekend. She said some brick-and-mortar business owners said they depended on the expansive festival to hold out until the end of the year.

As the country emerged from the pandemic, Venouziou said many of its effects linger. She said staffing issues remained and spending had climbed in line with historic inflation. In addition to significantly higher costs for ingredients and materials, she noted that skyrocketing rents are also affecting small businesses.

Not only are creators and local businesses facing price hikes for physical locations, Venouziou explained, but many landlords are also renting out their homes.

“So they are affected both ways,” she added. “And they don’t want to raise their prices too much. In general, they had to kind of suck and have a smaller profit margin on a lot of items.

However, there are reasons for optimism. Venouziou said Shopapalooza continues to grow and she expects this weekend’s festival to be “the biggest ever.”

While there’s no good way to tell how many people are attending the free event, she said police tasked with closing off surrounding downtown streets told her her best estimate was to around 30,000 last year.

And, for the first time, attendees can now sip and shop as beer and wine are permitted throughout the venue. Venouziou believes this will help increase crowds and that all proceeds from alcohol sales will go to the local non-profit Jump for Kids.

Shopapalooza also accepts pets.

Elizabeth Rutledge, chief marketing officer of American Express, said in a statement that consumers spent more than $23 billion shopping locally on Saturdays last year for small businesses, “and we want to top that in 2022. “.

Buying locally, Venouziou explained, mitigates ongoing supply chain disruptions. She said offering items in small batches alleviates the need to purchase needed supplies in bulk from out of the region or overseas.

Additionally, she said the uniqueness of the items means creators can easily replace out-of-stock materials. Venouziou said many sellers saw record sales last year, and they are hoping for a similar response with the pandemic in the rearview mirror.

“They feel like it’s kind of their baby too,” she said. “They started out as buyers when they were in high school or college, and now they have their own business.”

A second-hand pop-up bookstore at last year’s festival.

In addition to merchandise, Venouziou noted that Shopapalooza also offers food, drink and entertainment options. Mastry’s Brewing Co., 3 Daughters Brewing, Mermosa Wines and Great Bay Distributors will supply beer and wine. The website lists 40 other vendors in four strategically placed areas in the waterfront park.

Musical artists and comedians take the stage from 11 a.m. on both days, and activity and kids’ zones — which offer free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus — also operate all weekend. Jump For Kids isn’t the only nonprofit to benefit from the festival, as Venouziou plans to give the St. Pete Youth Farm a $10,000 donation after the event.

Shopapalooza is co-sponsored by the City of St. Petersburg, and Venouziou expressed his gratitude to the Department of Parks and Recreation for supporting the festival since its inception. The event takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Vinoy Park, 701 Bayshore Dr. NE. Venouziou noted that a free cart transports customers to and from the Sundial parking lot.

“But people need to remember to shop locally all year round,” she said. “It’s not just a weekend.”

With the aim of further reinforcing dependence on WhatsApp in one of its largest markets, the Metalaunched new features in Brazil to allow consumers to find, communicate and transact with businesses, all within the messaging app.

Features include a directory function, which was tested with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) for a year in São Paulo. As part of the changes announced by the company today (17), users can find not only SMBs nationwide, but also larger businesses using the WhatsApp API nearby through an integrated search function to the application.

Brazil is the first country in the world where the company is introducing the feature, which will gradually be rolled out to other markets. “We want to empower people to do even more on WhatsApp and part of that means creating better ways to engage with businesses,” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a recorded message played during the first WhatsApp business summit in São Paulo today (17).

With the new features, Brazilian users of the messaging tool will also be able to view products and initiate conversations with sellers. In partnership with local acquirers such as Cielo and Mercado Pago, WhatsApp is also expected to allow consumers to purchase from businesses within the app.

Brazil is estimated to have around 165 million WhatsApp users, according to an Opinion Box/Mobile Time study, as of August 2022. The messaging tool is installed in 99% of smartphones, and that’s the most used app in the country.

Also according to research, 80% of WhatsApp users interact with brands and businesses through the app and 82% do so to request information about products and services. In addition, around 60% of the most important brands in Brazil are on WhatsApp, according to a study by Kantar.

The company’s launches also respond to local market trends in omnichannel commerce. For example, data from Kantar suggests that 85% of online adults in Brazil feel more connected to brands when they can send direct messages to that company.

Many local businesses are reaping the benefits of adding messaging to their customer service strategy. During the event, different case studies were discussed, namely Bank of Brazilone of the largest banks in Brazil, which offers more than 20 types of services to its 12 million customers via WhatsApp and uses it for service messages, marketing and for transactional purposes.

Changing business communication

According to the vice president of messaging at Meta, Matthew Idema, the way Brazilian companies are using the tool is “very creative”. “Since my first visit to Brazil in 2017, I’ve found it remarkable how many small businesses were using WhatsApp to sell products, but in an unstructured way. So we wanted to make it easier for people in businesses,” he said. -he declares. .

Without specifying what revenue boost Meta expects from new conversational commerce features aimed at SMBs, Idema said the strategy is to launch free products and scale them, then bring paid services later. “At this point, we are just at the very beginning, just allowing people to find a business on WhatsApp without any friction,” he noted.

Premium services for SMBs on the horizon include distributing the ability to respond to conversations across up to 10 devices – currently it’s only possible for a small business to respond to WhatsApp requests from a single device. “Our vision is for Whatsapp to be the primary means of communication for people in businesses,” Idema said.

By concentrating business discovery, conversations and transactions on a single platform, WhatsApp aims to solve the customer experience challenges faced by small businesses, as shoppers need to use various services before closing an online sale, a said Guilherme Horn, head of WhatsApp in Brazil.

“Companies lose sales every time a user has to leave WhatsApp to do something. [other than buying]. Our goal is to prevent this from happening – and in doing so, we will generate a massive impact on the Brazilian economy,” he concluded.

Given the current economic conditions, marketing teams are stretched and expected to do more with less.

If you’re a marketer focused on generating revenue from local areas, you know that fierce competition awaits to slow down your local marketing initiatives.

At times like these, it’s important to maintain a consistent framework of results that will help you stand out in local search results.

Here’s a checklist of 5 areas to focus on if you only have 30 minutes a week or less to devote to local marketing efforts.

1. Optimize Your Google Business Profile Listing and Social Profiles

A complete and verified Google Business Profile listing is one of the cornerstones of local SEO.

One of the biggest mistakes marketers make in local SEO is simply uploading a minimal amount of information to Google Business Profile (GBP) and then putting it on autopilot.

A powerful lever to get your business up the local SEO listings is to fill in all of your name, address, and phone number (NAP) information, as well as adding images, categories, hours of operation, and more. Moreover.

Once your GBP listing is populated, you need to make sure it is verified. Verification can be done by phone, SMS, email or video. Here are the instructions you need to make sure it’s verified.

Once verified, this is where you need to make sure you pay attention to your listing to respond to reviews or customer questions.

Check back at least once a month (if not more) to upload new images and check your listing’s performance in GBP.

Follow this same process for your main social media profiles.

Local social media search queries have grown dramatically over the past decade, and you want to make sure you can be found on Google as easily as you can on Facebook and Twitter.

2. Complete a job, ask for a review

Generating five-star reviews is one of the most effective ways to increase your presence in local search engine results pages (SERPs).

By increasing your average rating and rating volume, local SERPs tend to float those results higher. Plus, social proof pulled from five-star reviews is an invaluable way to get customers to trust your brand.

Before you make a concerted effort to generate reviews, you need to be careful about how you ask customers for reviews.

There are “review filters” on platforms like Yelp that omit certain reviews or penalize your business listing if they appear to have been abnormally solicited by the business owner.

Here are two effective ways to generate more reviews (without filtering them):

  • Manually: After completing a job or delivering a product or service, simply request the review and leave a link (on the invoice) to where your customer can go to leave their review.
  • automatique: Tools like GradeUs, Birdeye and GatherUp all offer automated solutions to drive people to your social profiles to leave a review. If your business has more than three to five new customers each week, this is the most convenient and efficient route (compared to manually requesting a review).

3. Create Localized Blog or Website Page Content

Your business needs a level of localized content to rank in local search

Without local signals on your site, search engines are less likely to associate you with your targeted geography.

Here are some common ways to localize your content:

Products/Services pages

On your product/service pages, include localized modifiers in text and image descriptions so your audience makes the localized connection.

One of the biggest mistakes local businesses make when creating their product pages is that they make the copy so generic that the page could be used for a business in any city.

Conversely, you shouldn’t stuff your web copy with localized terms. Search engines are pretty good at demoting your content when your copy seems abnormally full of local keywords.

The best way to check this is to read your copy aloud to a friend. If that doesn’t feel natural to you, you may have gone a bit too far when adding localized keyword modifiers.

Galleries

If you provide services at locations in your area, show images of your work with a description of the type of product/service you offer and some localized modifiers in the description.

Branch/Franchise Pages

If your business has multiple locations, each of your locations should have its own page on your site.

On these branch pages, you’ll want to include your NAP, hours of operation, description of your branch location, and pictures of your location (inside and outside, if possible). These branch pages should also link to their individual GBP page.

4. Create backlinks from your network

The good thing about local SEO and link building is that in most cases you don’t need to build thousands of links. On the contrary, in most cases, you only need a handful more than your local competitors to help your SEO positioning.

The easiest way to build backlinks to your site is to generate them from companies you have a relationship with.

Here are some scenarios addressing the types of links you might pursue as part of common business activities:

  • An electrical or HVAC company has a business connection with a local real estate agent. The real estate agent generally refers this service provider to his network of clients (by word of mouth). Depending on the realtor’s site, the service provider can get a link to the realtor’s site if it has a “trusted local providers” section.
  • A business owner sponsors a booth at the local fair every year. This is a great opportunity to get a quote and a link by making sure your business is listed somewhere on the fair’s website.

So, as a first step, make a list of all the business connections you have in your area and identify the reasons why these connections would relate to you.

5. Generate Local Citations

Citations are simply mentions of your business name, address, and phone number on a website.

Citations are mostly found in general local directories (like Google Maps), but can also be found in niche-specific directories like APlaceForMom.com, which is a senior living-specific directory site.

Citations don’t necessarily need to contain a link for you to get value. Google considers mentions of your business name to be a local authority signal.

Here are the two main ways to increase your citations:

  • Manually: The easiest way to get your first quotes is to list your business on Google Maps, Yelp, Bing and Facebook. Consistency is key when filling out your business profiles on these sites. If your business address is on a boulevard, avoid using different combinations of that spelling or initials each time you create a new listing.
  • automatique: There are local citation building tools from Moz, BrightLocal, Semrush, etc. Although these tools are paid, they just require you to enter your business information and then go out and do all the list building for you.

Personally, I like a mix of these two methods because automated SEO tools can’t always fill in all information fields or fully verify profiles.

To get started, focus your initial efforts on Google, Yelp, Bing, and Facebook.

Next, find 5-10 niche-specific directories (that regularly show up in search listings for your target keywords) and aim to list your business there.

Conclusion

In conclusion, even if you don’t have a lot of time to spend on local SEO, that doesn’t mean you can’t generate impressive results.

You just have to be strategic about how you use that time and what areas you focus on.

Spending 30 minutes a week on the 5 areas we covered above will result in more traffic, leads, and customers for your business within months.
