Genesis Social Media Marketing

Social Media - Not just important but essential to your marketing strategy

You will find yourself wondering why making contact with someone on the other side of the world is going to help your local offering and that's OK.
So keep wondering while you do it but just do it.

Quite seriously, though it is hard to explain even to oneself, social media has this strange habit of buzzing around the world like a bee and then coming back to the hive, each time with a little more honey to deposit.

Start now if you haven't already and if you have started, keep going hard.

It will pay off.
