How To Promote Your Mom & Pop Coffee Shop Using Social Media[edit | edit source]

When deciding to open a little mom and pop coffee shop, many factors go into deciding how you will promote the business and get the attention of potential clients or customers who might already be going to chain coffee shops. In today's world it is important that not only traditional methods are used, but that modern methods using social media are utilized as well. Not using social media is no longer an option and many businesses miss out on the opportunity to be part of the conversation surrounding their business if they don’t use it.

The first step is to decide what you are trying to promote and who your target audience is. Are they young? Old? Middle aged? All these play a part in deciding which social media outlets would be the best to use. Although it may seem obvious, you have to decide how you want your coffee shop to be perceived. Do you have a product that’s different from the rest? Are your coffee grains imported from Columbia? Do you bake fresh muffins daily? Whatever is unique and whatever is unattainable anywhere else is what is important to highlight. It is also very important to stick to one central idea and message to surround the business and make sure that whatever you’re doing to promote can somehow go back to that. What do you want customers or potential clients to think about your business before they even have an experience with it?

Once these key components are decided, it is important to create the appropriate social media accounts, post updates, and stay aware of the interactions that your coffee shop has, whether it is positive or negative. This site can be used as a resource to begin your online brand using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You will learn that each of these platforms have their own unique uses and are not to be treated as equal. Facebook is a great place to create a brand for your coffee shop and attract older audiences. Twitter is a great place for conversation and quick updates to the millennial generation, and Instagram is fun to use and give visuals about your business.
