Here’s the simplest explanation: Digital Marketing is any marketing that happens ONLINE or ON AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE. Email marketing? Yep. […]
Should you have a regular schedule for posting to social media? I saw this question posted in a business group today and nearly lost my mind. OF COURSE you should have a regular schedule for posting.
