Which one is more important for my online business?  Ok, I am going to preface this by saying that I absolutely love social media marketing.

By Jennie Lyon / January 21, 2020

Do you feel like you’re getting a little less “bang for your buck” from your marketing strategy plan lately? Digital marketing is one of the fastest moving targets on the internet. Things are constantly shifting and changing. New services appear and old ones disappear constantly. Google+, for example, was a “must” just a few years ago. Today? Uh, what’s Google+?

Are You Going To Hit Your Annual Goals
