“Be present on social media — post at least once per day. Social media, for many businesses, is a lifeline. For us, it’s how we attract people to our site. For businesses, it’s found that people are less often going to Google to search for something than they are searching Facebook or Instagram to find it, which is incredible. Consumers/followers want to know that you’re active and engaged in the community around you on social media (and in real life), which will in turn make them engage with you.” – Jen, Hoboken Girl
