Is Anyone Out There?
If Facebook is part of your business development plan, now is a good time for you to ask: is anyone reading your posts? This is the big question in social marketing — because no matter how brilliant your thoughts, it doesn’t matter if nobody’s reading them. The most important factor in getting people to read […]
Leading or Lagging
