Biggest Takeaways from Catherine:

“Email Marketing still wins the day if you do it right.”

“Social media is where people get the opportunity to know, like and  trust you. They get to see your expertise.”

“Social media and email marketing, they work REALLY well together.”

“Facebook has become pay to play.”

“Big Three Platforms: Facebook Page, Facebook Group and Instagram.”

“To me where I spend most of my effort on social media is within my own Facebook Group and for clients as well, that’s where I encourage them to actually spend their time as well.”

“Facebook, the company itself, is actually encouraging communities. It is much more easier in a Facebook group to build a community because that’s its natural use. It’s literally created for communities.”

“Posts need to be interactive. This is vital.”

“One key thing about groups is to always provide value.”
