The impact of social media cannot be understated. Without a strong online presence, a brand will always be a step behind the competition. With each day that passes, thousands of people are signing up for popular digital platforms and hoping to establish their own brands and ride the social media wave to professional success. Little do they know how much work is required to make it in this increasingly competitive landscape.
