are you getting sales from social media?

What’s the point of spending all that time on social media if you can’t get more traffic and sales to your shop thanks to it?

Well… of course, not much of a point at all.

It’ s easy to get caught up in the numbers of followers, likes, comments and shares that we can get on social media, but let’s keep the end-goal in mind: more sales.

In this episode, we talk about how to make sure that you use social media in a way that actually helps you get more people to visit your shop – because that’s truly all that matters!
