Helping new, small and start up business use social media more effectively
If small, new and start up businesses are to grow they need to promote and market their products and services. Virtually all businesses benefit from having a professional online presence which means websites, social media profiles and blogging. The easy solution is to pay someone to set these up and manage them, but once you know how most people can do these themselves. The potential cost savings are huge!
