I'm excited about checking out this thread. It seems search engines and social networks are all making a move towards local results, so this makes a ton of sense.

If you would like to make some marketing campaigns for your product/shop/restaurant if you have some number base of your clients I strongly reccomend sms campaigns like best form to present current offer for your clients.

If that is new place and you don't have yet customer number base for your sms campaigns you can arrange some loyality program/ promo club(loyality cards etc.) to collect numbers base for future marketing for that group. I have a disco club and when we swapped facebook activities to sms campaigns before weekend we had over 2times more entries to our place in Friday nights.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are the best days to share links etc. on Facebook. Can I share a link on post something on a timer during these days because work does not allow Facebook?

Best bet is to invest in something like HootSuite which is pretty reasonable, and allows you to schedule posts.

Default Mobile is Local

The nature of mobile search is local search. Mobile search users are someone who is ready to buy and are looking for an area near them to buy what they want. Making sure you website is mobile optimized and having a great local google places experience (including the new Google Photos inside Panorama shoot of your business) will increase your odds of search users finding your store and turning into an acquisition.

Default Local Small Retail Business is Like Home.

Really excited about finding The Small Busness Ideas Forum. I spent half of my working career in "Corporate" and the later half as a business owner in 3 different endeavours - retail and consulting. This forum is like going home. Hope to share and help others with those more than 50 years of experience.
