Why Social Media for Small Businesses?
Do you want to create a successful social strategy? Ready to take your Social Media marketing to the next level? Social media are computer-mediated tools that allow people or companies to create, share, or exchange information, career interests, ideas, and pictures/videos in virtual communities and networks
Businesses joined us at this social media event and learned how to improve their social marketing.
