If you are looking to boost your small business’s social-media presence, the Downtown Alliance has launched Get Social. The program is an opportunity for 10 Lower Manhattan storefronts to receive six free sessions with a social media consultant and a $1,500 advertising grant. If your small business is accepted into the program, the Alliance will work with you and a social-media manager to identify your goals, develop strategies to enhance your social-media presence and launch a paid advertising plan with $1,500 distributed in two installments during the course of the program.
This program is an effort to help you make your storefront more accessible to a broader range of customers and to develop your online skills as a business owner. Sessions will begin in May and run through July.
