Social Media: a business tool or a distraction?

· Blog

Social media is huge. Social media is here to stay. It revolutionises everything we know and do and I hear it makes a mean latte too. With social media experts and bootcamps popping up and yet another new platform emerging every second day, have we lost track of what matters? One in three business owners is overwhelmed by social media and whether social media is actually effective as a business tool is a point of heated discussion, so it’s time to get enlightened by the gurus!

Let’s watch a video.
