I’ve talked about why you should strongly consider adding Vine to your social media marketing strategy. But there’s still the question of how.
To that end, I’ve put together a list of practical do’s and don’t to help you create your first Vine.
They’re everywhere on the internet these days. As ubiquitous as cat photos. You’ve even seen them here, on this very blog — we like to use neat-looking ones to help illustrate key points.
