To be or not to be….LINKED UP. Social Media is one of the best ways to Grow UR Biz. There are so many ways to optimize your social media presence, yet so many of my clients don’t do it because they are either too busy, don’t know how to begin or they don’t understand the value of Social Media. LinkedIn is the closest thing to a professional profile. It’s not so much a social site as it is a place for businesses to show their colorful feathers in most cases for FREE.
