We are already rolling into the month of August. We are deep into Summer but as a business, we know what this month is all about – yes, back to school! It’s time to capitalize on everything related to students, young and old. Aside from posting promotional content for back to school, we also recommend posting helpful resources for parents and kids in this transition from lazy days to busy ones. Let your brand stand out with cool tips, educational how-to’s and fun facts.
