Promoting other businesses promotes you!

Sometimes a simple but great idea is found while doing something else. That is what happened on the road last week in Colorado when we meet Steve Hitchcock of Soda Creek Pizza. In doing the Western Pizza Summit panel, Steve mentioned how he uses social media. The most important tip he provided was that his pizzeria asks on Facebook for people to nominate other businesses in Steamboat Springs and they provide them free pizza. Simple but brilliant!

The idea does several good deeds.

First, promoting other businesses on your Facebook page helps show off that you are also part of the local community.

Second, it encourages engagement of your community.

Third, while it does promote other businesses first, it also shows that you are a great business as well that supports others.
