Trending Social Media Tools to Grow Your Business

-

70% of marketers are going to increase their social media ad spend this year – globally we will spend $24 billion across social networks! That’s more than the GDP of New Zealand (probably). The key point here is that you obviously have to spend some of your $$ on social media, because that’s what everyone else is doing, and you DO NOT WANT TO BE THE ONLY CHUMP DOING SOMETHING ELSE.

READ ON FOR ALL THE ANSWERS YOU EVER HOPED TO HAVE (kind of).
