Last month, we went all-in when it came to demystifying social media for small businesses. Successful small businesses adopt social media because it amplifies sales, marketing and collaboration efforts so they can generate leads, increase sales and save time. Here is a recap of all the content on Social Media Month that we published.
Throughout February, we focused our efforts on helping you and your small business succeed with social media. I’d like to specifically acknowledge the people who helped make it a success: Social Media Specialist, Heather Dopson; Content Manager, Madison Jacobs; Brand Journalist (and blog ninja), Andrea Parker; and Brand Journalist (video extraordinaire), June Brockmeyer. Through close collaboration, we brought our talents together to deliver helpful information and advice on social media. And that’s what’s it all about — helping you succeed.
