Welcome back to another episode of the Foot Traffic podcast!!

There are a few places where I feel special, dare I say even “famous”.  They aren’t places you would expect.  One being Office Depot.  I walk in, wait in line at the print department and the employee says, “Stacy, I will be right with you.”  The people in front of me look back to check out who I am and then look forward completely unphased.  Office Depot doesn’t know me as a Small Business Guru or the Wisconsin Small Business Person of the Year.  Nope.  They know me as someone who prints stuff.  A lot. At Office Depot.  Now I don’t go in as much because my team does but I bet they feel the exact same way. 

When the Office Depot brand reached out to see if I would like to come on their podcast, I was beyond excited and today I am going to bring you that conversation because it was so good!  Big Disclaimer: This episode is not just for those who shop or print at Office Depot!  It is for the Small Business Owner!

This episode is for all small business owners and we will be talking all things business, branding, LinkedIn, holiday promotions (not just Christmas) and how we can leverage all holidays to grow our business).

I have to be honest,  I was extremely impressed with Office Depot.  I got to hear a little bit of the behind the scenes and they are really innovating and keeping up with the times! They are truly focused on not getting stuck in old ways, and they are working at growing and evolving as a business every single day. 

Here are a few highlights you won’t want to miss: 

“We are heavily using…” at 5:39 I share the two social platforms my brick and mortar business is getting the best results on right now.  

“You need to always be thinking about the end consumer…” at 6:30 LinkedIn expert, Brittany Krystle share the #1 thing to think about when choosing your social platform.  She also shares her personal favorite platforms and where you should have your business.

“Maximizing your time…” at 35:50 we discuss what Office Depot does to increase efficiency for their customers in both the online and brick and mortar spaces.
