The Mystery of Social Media Marketing with Laura Kinnard

When I sat down with Laura Kinnard from Drake, DMACC and DMBizMixer.com to talk about business networking events happening in the Greater Des Moines Metro I didn't expect to go here. We sort of went off the rails about social media and how, for so many businesses (large and small), it is a frustrating mystery. For example what platform to use, what calendar, what to share, who to share with....agahhhhh. Sorry for the rant but give a listen to that as well as some top networking/education events happening this week.
