Takeaways + Tactics

Snapchat isn’t interruptive. People can decide whether they want to hear from you.

Authenticity and Social Media
The ways in which you use social media are extremely important in creating a brand and helping you find new clients. It is important to be authentic on social media, that is your marketing. If you can create genuine connections with people through shared commonalities, then you will have stronger, more valuable clients. The stronger the bonds you share with your clients, the more likely they are to refer their friends and families to you, and the more clients you will get.
