Small businesses are at the heart of the culture and the uniqueness of the local Vancouver community. To celebrate our incredible city, OMG Social Media has started the initiative, #DiscoverVanBiz, to encourage Vancouverites to spotlight local businesses.
We know how important awareness is to business success, especially for local gems. From photos of Earnest Ice Cream to fun photo booth shots with Butter Studios, having the community share local favourites is one of the best ways to support and give back to these businesses. With many that have yet to be widely discovered, #DiscoverVanBiz has the goal to give the spotlight to these unique businesses.
For every time you buy a cup of coffee at that coffee shop down the block, for every unique piece of clothing bought in a local boutique shop, or any other local favourites that Vancouver has to offer, Vancouverites can participate in the campaign by using the hashtag #DiscoverVanBiz in all social media posts.
OMG Social Media is also giving away a pair of OMG Social Media Conference 2014 tickets, a conference that empowers small businesses by providing them with practical, ready to implement social media and digital marketing strategies. To enter, you must:
1.) Take a great photo featuring a local Vancouver business.
2.) Post a shout out to @OMGmedia on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #DiscoverVanBiz and a brief caption of why it’s one of your Vancity favorites!
Give back and support your favourite local businesses and continue to discover more by following #DiscoverVanBiz.
