Social strategy for a small business can be overwhelming at times. With so many platforms available to billions of people all over the world, how you communicate and prioritize your effort will make all the difference in your brand's online success story. In this seminar, you'll learn key differences about the channels that your brand can focus on, and how your strategy on those channels should be shaped by your business needs and your audience. Additionally, you'll hear about the do's and don'ts of brand participation, and why staying consistent and authentic matters in online branded communication.
