Today your company must have at least 2 posts per week to be considered to have “social presence”. Likewise, if your customers see you haven’t posted any content in a month, they’ll likely think something wrong.
It’s one thing to post content and another thing to promote it. Unfortunately just posting to your social platforms is not enough if you want to increase the size of your audience or further your brand awareness.
