Facebook and Instagram Posts: Take Your Posts to the Next Level

Presented by Francisco Ramirez, Chimbly Consultants

Participants of this workshop will examine Facebook and Instagram posts and compare what makes a post rise to the top and what knocks a post off news feeds. Participants will leave with tools to take their posts to the next level.
