Social Media Review for 2012

First Post of 2012 – Runway 21 Studios is now fully engaged.

  • Your most important feature is the strength of your connection and the value of the information you provide
  • If any of your social media messages can’t answer the reader’s, “What’s in this for me?” question, it shouldn’t be sent.  To wit:
