Top Searches on Social Media Thanksgiving Week

by Gail Oliver, Online Marketing Consultant

Thanksgiving is a very big week on social media in the United States. If you are using social media to promote your online shop, remember, you do not always want to just post your products. It is really not the best way to get seen. Instead, you want to post content people on social media are looking for or care about, to inadvertently get your shop noticed.
