About The Session

You’ve set up a Twitter account, Facebook page, Instagram account, or some other social media account to start to send your messages and content to the world. Now what? 
The quality of the content that you publish on any digital platform—like social media, email, and your website—matters. In this one-hour session, we’ll cover the best practices for creating great social content. From the details to the macro, we’ll cover a wide array of content considerations. And we’ll cover the three-part formula to building out a social media following so that your new-and-improved content is seen.
