  • Drive more “likes”, more “shares”, and more business.
  • Plan: Driving repeat business and amplifying word of mouth with a great offer!

And, we’ll share the 10 best practices that you can do today to supercharge your Facebook marketing and take that word-of-mouth marketing to the next level.  Also, there will also be a quick networking opportunity within the presentation.
