Social Media Articles

We have a lot of fun with social media, especially Instagram. I’m constantly learning about the latest ways to promote small businesses on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and WordPress blogs. There’s so much info out there it’s hard not to suffer from information overload. So I try to post about useful social media articles and tips that I’ve personally found to be useful.

If you haven’t already — don’t forget to follow the I Love Cowichan blog, and our Instagram & Facebook accounts.
