MyShoplife Challenge Kicks Off Saturday

It’s time for indie retailers to start shouting about their fabulous shops as the annual #MyShopLife Instagram challenge starts on Saturday.

Organised by Sarah Holmes, owner of Pencil Me In and  Seasgair in Elgin – the latter is a finalist in The Greats Best Newcomer category –  the challenge is set to run from Saturday for eight consecutive days. Sarah says: “This is a great way to shout about your shop, meet other shopkeepers, sell and reach a new audience of shoppers who love independent stores.”

See the Instagram video below:

Retailers can join the challenge by posting daily photos, stories or reels on Instagram using the hashtag #MyShopLife24. Each day’s prompt is crafted to help shopkeepers highlight their stores and improve their sales techniques – and shopkeepers are also asked to tag in @pencilmeinshop.

“#MyShoplife is not just a typical Instagram challenge,” Sarah comments, “it’s a unique opportunity for shopkeepers to showcase their businesses and enhance their sales strategies.

“Each day’s prompt is carefully designed to empower shop owners, providing them with a platform to celebrate their shops and connect more effectively with their customer base.”
