Using Social Media Before and During Your Launch

Welcome to episode 363 of Hit the Mic with The Stacey Harris. It’s that time of year again. We’re mid to late August, and here’s the deal guys, launch season, it’s right around the corner. Once September hits, that like back to school vibe, a lot, a lot, a lot of people go into launch mode, and maybe, just maybe, there’s something that you would like to launch this fall.
