Many Canadian small businesses realize that social media can help them reach new customers, but company owners may not know the best strategies for utilizing services like Facebook and Twitter. The Globe and Mail recently revealed some tips for companies looking to engage with consumers online.
A recent study by bit.ly finds that the best times to tweet or post to Facebook are between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday. These sites tend to see less usage after working hours and on the weekends, the study showed. Activity is popular in the morning on these sites, but the study found many businesses posted in the morning, so there was more competition for attention.
While small businesses need to have a good plan in place for their online presence, they should also consider what to do with their critical files. Storing sensitive data online is one option, but small businesses may also want to consider a cheap Toronto self storage facility, where they can keep physical copies of their most important files. Self storage facilities may also be useful for storing equipment or supplies needed for the business that won't fit in an office.
Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether it's filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business could use to help improve productivity.
