By Ben Young - Monday, February 10, 2020
Last week, our favorite kids entertainment business marketing guru Mitch Zeltzer did something awesome. You probably know Mitch from our #1 best selling ebook last year, Marketing On-A-Budget for Kids Entertainers.
We all know how hard it can be to "come up" with interesting (or, dare I say, GOOD), content for our social media accounts. But social media is a critical component to kids entertainment/party businesses in 2020. So, as a leading authority on the matter, Mitch stepped in to help by giving us 50 (yes, FIFTY) social media post ideas that we can all STEAL!
