Maybe* analyses the best social media posts of #SmallBizSatUK

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Maybe* is a collaborative social media management platform that provides engagement tools, actionable insights, reports and access to training that enables organisations to make social media work for them.

Maybe* have used their insight tool to round up some of the best social media posts of #smallbizsatuk from businesses, customers, councils, BIDs, shopping centres, and lots more in between.

Small Business Saturday 2020 (#smallbizsatuk) took place on December 5th. Now in its 8th year, this years event was more important to small and local businesses than ever. This year's Small Business Saturday coincided with the first weekend of non-essential retail re-opening across England after November's lockdown.

After a year of tough trade, lockdown measures and enforced closures, small businesses and the towns and places they do business in need shoppers to support and shop local.


Rocking retailers

Retail re-opened and with the first trading weekend of December also being the first weekend post-lockdown, AND Small Business Saturday, retailers were ready to rock.

Retailers added place tags, and a whole host of shop local hashtags to their social media content to welcome back shoppers.


Councils and BIDs supporting #smallbizsatUK

Councils, BIDs and local authorities got behind Small Business Saturday by creating posts celebrating the best in their areas. From Kent to Kelso, the best posts showcased boutiques, gift shops, book shops, butchers shoppers could support in the run up to Christmas, or physically buy from for the first time since November.


Shopping Centres and Marketplaces

Shopping Centres and local market places got behind #smallbizsatUK by sharing the love for their indie tenants or listing different markets and indie hot spots in their area. 


Customers showing the love

We've seen this year that customers want to spend their money with the small businesses that make their local communities thrive. Small Business Saturday saw customers out shopping at their favourite retailers, picking up coffee and cake at their favourite coffee shops, and showing the local love across the UK. 


Key takeaway

Supporting local businesses or an event like Small Business Saturday requires absolutely everyone to get involved from the retailers themselves, to local MPs, councils, BIDs, tourism bodies, press and of course the public. By creating content and posting on social media, businesses can inspire or reach new customers who are itching to give them a try.
