#ViralInNature – These are incredibly great stats Mari Smith and BuzzSumo have uncovered.  I especially like #7 because I’ve been saying it for years!  When it comes to best posting times, however, keep in mind that these are a great guideline but every page is unique. #YYC#YYCBusiness #SocialMediaMarketing

#ViralInNature – Does your business have an employee social media policy? You should because if you don’t then your business may be liable when you fire an employee for these reasons. An Employee Social Media Policy is there to let employees know that, yes they can post about your business and their job on their personal social media and that your business should actually encourage them too because they are some of your biggest fans! But a policy will also let employees know that they are responsible for what they post even when they’re not on duty.

We have an Employee Social Media Policy Template available free for you to download here.
