Launched in partnership with entrepreneur and content creator Maayan Gordon, Main Street Tour is a first-of-its-kind, purpose-driven initiative designed to shine a light on the positive impact that small business brings to our communities. From now until September 2023, Maayan will visit small businesses in more than 100 U.S. cities across 48 states, capturing their stories and empowering them to transform digitally by leveraging the power of social media. “Main Street Tour was designed to start a movement and to uncover small businesses’ personal power in making a difference,” said Maayan Gordon, social media content creator and entrepreneur. “Disruption is a vehicle for positive change. It’s so important to amplify the voices of those doing good in their communities and empower others to be conscious leaders. I’m thrilled to partner with an organization like Hootsuite who shares these same values, and can’t wait to see the positive change we’ll drive together through this initiative.” During each visit, Maayan will work with entrepreneurs and small business owners to create content that tells their unique story, and deliver social media-focused workshops designed to help business owners continue driving success in the long-term. The sessions will include a demo of the Hootsuite platform, an overview of the various social media networks and support in building a sound social media strategy. Mayaan will also provide a TikTok training program specifically designed for small businesses, which she built based on lessons learned from growing her own channel to more than two million followers. “Small businesses are the backbone of our country, yet so many struggle to have their voices heard,” said Maggie Lower, CMO, Hootsuite. “Maayan’s passion for community, relationship building and social for good makes her the perfect partner to amplify these voices.
