The Social Media conundrum

by Claire Martinsen on Thu 11th Oct 2018 06:34

I do love Social Media….as a small business I find it not just useful but invaluable.  Its probably the biggest leveller that a business can have – where competing against big global giants becomes fairer when you all have the same tools.  In some respects it can work in the favour of small businesses who […]

You can now find us on Instagram too!  We’re @brecklandorchard and you’ll be able to see Breckland Orchard in pictures.

Shona Chambers and I started chatting on Twitter just over a year […]
