They highlighted how they use social media to boost their marketing efforts and some information on using more traditional methods of marketing. In addition to sharing their knowledge, they also answered some questions, one of which they answered that while marketing on social media it is important to be original, sometimes funny but professional and true to your brand and showing followers something they will remember.
