Ever wake up one morning and think to yourself:

“Jeepers self, if only I could know what NOT to do to torpedo myself into a one way ticket to the Titanic!”

Not having clear social media guidelines and policies is another mistake that can hurt your marketing efforts. It’s paramount that you have a clear protocol of what can and cannot be posted on your social media accounts.

This tweet is a great example of what can happen if your employees don’t know how to switch to a personal account.

The Justice Department mocked CNN and Melania Trump in clearly unintentional tweet saying “CNN is the biggest troll of them all lmao #Petty”.
