In this post I’m going to talk you through the do’s instead of the don’ts for businesses posting on Facebook. (more…)
As I speak to small business owners, I’m amazed how most of them either have a Facebook page for personal use or have maybe set up a Facebook page for their business and yet still are not understanding how to make it work for them.
