GABB Ramps Up Social Media

At January’s meeting, GSU’s selling expert Christopher Lemley told us that any company that isn’t using social media for marketing is already five years behind.

Earlier this month, GABB’s Diane Loupe attended a free webinar and heard about a free social media tool called Buffer. Here’s the link:
With this application, GABB was able to post more than 100 updates of interest to our members without spending much time doing it.

Here’s some content we shared:

Much of the content was reshared from other social media savvy business brokers. What about you? Do you have a Facebook page, a LinkedIn account, a Twitter handle, or a Google Plus page? If you do, how often do you update it? If you don’t, why not?

If you’re not following GABB, we invite you to do so now. And if you do have a social media account, send it to us so GABB can follow YOU!
