May is social media strategy month for our [email protected] business skills seminars. Before investing in any new marketing venture, it’s helpful to know where you want to go. Such as understanding WHY you would use WHICH channels of social media and WHAT you want to get out of them. And of course you will want to know whether you are reaching your objectives over time. This month, we will break it down into 4 weekly workshops to help you develop your own goals and build a process for reaching them. (officexpats.com/social-media-strategy/)
