Social Media Tip Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Every Tuesday I compile my daily social media tips and tricks I tweeted on Twitter in the past week. And because I’ve had a lot of customers recently ask me about how to get more visibility, I decided to focus mostly on local marketing. The trivia from today is for all my sports buffs, given the upcoming Super Bowl (in the U.S.) this Sunday.
