Rodney Jansen More than 1 year ago
This book is a good read for anyone in business who has not created a Facebook Page to open up a channel to communicate with their customers/clients. Putting some of these strategies into play will have a huge impact for any business. Facebook is a huge community where you can find your existing and future clients. This book gives the reader a good direction on how to tap into this huge community and build your own sub community around your product or service.
