Your either someone who’s great at social media and always helping your friends, colleagues and family members get started; or you’re a complete novice and don’t know where to start. Either way, you’re could really benefit from my quick social media tutorials. I always recommend the first step is to setup a Gmail account, so you are running your social media campaigns from an account which isn’t completely tied into your domain name. This way, if you need to jettison the account due to spam, or some other calamity, you’re not risking an email account which is essential to your business communications.
