THE JOURNAL ARTICLES


THINGS WE LEARNED THIS WEEK  

  • Offer giveaways to increase your followers on social media and enhance engagement: While facilitating our builder series workshops, we started offering no cost consultations as a part of our group progress hour for students that tagged us in a social media post. Approx. 10 students tagged us in posts last week, which lead to more followers and brand awareness. This strategy works and we will be using it more often.
