    Enjoyed the segment! It’s so true about small businesses on what you said about how many are not actually using social media. Many have not made that leap just yet. I think most are not too sure how to use it or just don’t have the time for it because it can definitely take up your time!

    Glad you enjoyed it and you are totally right! Too many people out there trying to tell small businesses certain things about social media and what’s funny too is they forget to say JUST BE SOCIAL….

    I really enjoyed this and 100% agree. It makes me laugh how many people are telling small business owners how they will fail if they are not on social media. A local company will not go under if they don’t do social media. You’re right that it takes up a ton of your time that you could be getting out there talking to local people in your backyard anyways!

    Good point Garrett. We tend to forget “the backyard” to go to for spreading the word. Too many focus on going big when you first have to think small and strong.
