Collectively, Access Publishing manages over 100 social media accounts of local businesses. Access Publishing also offers web design, SEO, and online and print marketing.
“We wanted to host this seminar for free as a benefit to our web clients, and the general small business community as a whole,” said Ravy. “We care about small business here in North County and on the Central Coast as a whole and want to see them succeed, so I shared what I hope were some helpful tips and tricks today and provided an overview as to why it’s valuable to use social media.”
