what do i need to do to begin?

Our service takes this off your hands completely so that you can get on with running your business. No more headaches worrying that you're not keeping up.
should I combine it with other marketing?
Your social media output should always reflect and be in sync with all your marketing efforts. It will be important to ensure that whatever you do, your message is always consistent.
