Follow the Meat Department on Twitter!



Follow the Meat Dept on Twitter!

Would you follow your local grocery store in your favorite social network? The Topeka Hy-Vee is on Twitter and Facebook – and they WANT you to follow them!

Two observations here:

  1. Social networking IS slowly becoming “normal” – I’m seeing similar “follow me on Twitter and Facebook” signs all over the place, at stores, restaurants, hearing it on the radio, etc.
  2. If a grocery store can keep multiple social networking sites fresh (the Topeka Hy-Vee Twitter and Facebook Pages are updated daily) … I’m guessing you can, too.

And a question. Hy-Vee put a sign in the middle of their meat department advertising their social networking sites. Where are your signs? How are you inviting users into your digital spaces?

    Did they remember to include their Twitter handle on other signage? I'd follow them just to hear more about bacon :)

    I'm following my local grocery store on Facebook, mainly because it gives notices of food specials each day.

    For anyone interested in discount educational products and furniture, I found a great site ( http://appleschoolsupply.com/ )! They have a huge selection, their prices are phenomenal, and their customer service is second to none!

    Houston Librarian – I can think of some topics, like: libraries in Houston, how to find stuff, your hobbies (and why you like them), etc.

    Believe it or not, other people are in fact interested in that type of stuff!

    I'm a Facebook fan of my local grocery store because I appreciate the specialty items they carry and I wanted to let them know. http://bit.ly/alDhfA

    Hi David,
    I'm giving a presentation at the RetailNOW trade show on Wednesday. Would you mind if I used this image in my presentation? It's about using customer-facing technology to engage with shoppers. I'll give you a shout-out during the presentation if you'll let me use the image… If yes, please shoot me a note at sburkhart at sourcetech dot com. Thanks!
