In today’s socially driven consumer-base, Social Media and content marketing have become a vital point of marketing. Most business owners have heard “you HAVE to be on social media.” While that’s true, the key to success in social media isn’t only that you use it — it’s how you use it.

Content Idea #8: Feature Other Local Businesses.
Most likely, there are some other businesses in your area that are complementary to yours – not “competitors” but complementary. Try featuring these companies in your posts as a way to notify your audience about other valuable resources in the area. Not only will your audience appreciate it, but it could also lead to powerful connections between you and those businesses. Highlight their achievements, current events, and even special offers – and ask that they do the same for you. Choose companies that are related to your industry in some way and show your audience that you associate with the best.
Take Action: Write a post now featuring a local business's current event or special offer that is in some way related to your business.
