It can also feel impossible to know all there is to know, and stay up to date when technology is moving so quickly.

  • understanding the concept of a social media ‘tribe’;
  • choosing the right platform for your work, and your customers;
  • how to avoid talking about yourself incessantly;
  • tips and tricks on staying up to date, and much more.
