We all know that Amazon is a crucial part of any B2C company’s strategy. What is arguably more important, is that your product is available on Prime.

Repurposing Your Content For Social Channels See the article here.

There’s absolutely no need to overthink the type of content you choose to post on social media. Now, don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean that you post any and everything that comes to your mind (we don’t necessarily need to know about what’s going on with your dog). The point here is that sometimes you can look internally at what you already have and find a creative way repurpose the content. This article provides some great ways to look at your existing content and how to make the most of it. Enjoy!
