Hey! Margo here from The Blog Loft. I am so grateful to Marianne for the opportunity to share my Social Media Mavens E-course with you guys!
Basically, I created this course for bloggers who are feeling a little lost on social media. You want to grow, but it’s just not happening fast enough. Whether you’re a beginner, or a seasoned blogger, learning social media and staying up to date with the latest trends is your number one tool for survival. Your blog’s growth depends on it. Social media is not just about how you talk about yourself- it’s about how other people talk about you.
When you do social media right, you don’t have to shout from the rooftops about your blog- others will do that for you. But it does take time, and it does take work. So if you’re ready to put in some time to grow relationships, grow your page views, and create a sense of community for your readers, great news! I’m going to show you exactly how to do it!
