Support Local Business With Your Social Media

Make an impact with our #ShopLocal social media content calendar


A recent study showed that 82% of consumers are interested in supporting local businesses right now1—consider using a social media content calendar to help you efficiently market your business and promote others in your community. A content calendar devotes each day to a different topic, helping diversify your content and save you time when strategizing your posts for the week. 

Use the content calendar below to get started and check out the My Marketing Team Shop Local Toolkit to download the calendar graphics and find additional resources. We have provided photos and copy to use, but we encourage you to use fun photos of your staff and ODs as well.
