Published on

Second workshop given at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce in June 2010, this time teaching local businesses how to find, cultivate and keep fans online, and about what kind of fans they could expect to find with various interactions.

Note: In 2010 we changed out company name from Uptown Uncorked to Magnitude Media to better reflect the variety of clients we serve.
