You can use social media the same way Wal-Mart does

For local “mom and pop stores” social media is an extremely cost effective way to advertise. This medium is often overlooked by small businesses.

They engage with customers by sharing corporate news and other important events. They consistently report pertinent sales promotions to their loyal followers.

Wal-Mart customers click, tweet, and favorite like crazy and encourage their friends to do the same.
