A few weeks back, we put out a survey through the newsletter and one of the most surprising things for us here at Stix and Stones what that nearly half of you who read the newsletter do not follow us on Facebook or any other form of social media.
Now, don't get us wrong. We LOVE that you all read the newsletter. But let me tell you why we are on Facebook, and a few reasons why you should follow us there.
First and foremost, Stix and Stones is on Facebook because lots of people are. It is one of the fastest and most effective ways for us to share information with a good number of our customers. In the 21st century, it seems that social media and e-mail is where it's at for getting information to the masses.
That's all well and good, you say, but I'm here reading your weekly newsletter in my e-mail inbox. Shouldn't that be enough?
It should be, but there is only so much that we can fit into a weekly e-mail. I don't mean to say that important things are left out because they aren't. The first priority of this newsletter is to get the most important information about the store and events and classes gets to you when it needs to. But a lot can happen in between, and that is where the Facebook page comes in.
Through the Facebook page, we are able to instantly update you as to when a shipment of new product comes into the store, or if something has changed for a class or an event. The Facebook page also gives you a little glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of the store, which is fun for us, and we hope, fun for those who follow us. I mean, come on, couldn't we all use more adorable pictures of our store mascot Cuzco in our lives??
We also use the Facebook page to share information about stores and events in downtown North Bay in general. We are very locally minded here at the store, and we like to do everything we can to support other downtown businesses.
Have I convinced you? I certainly hope so! Here are some very easy steps to following Stix and Stones on Facebook.
