Nina’s Tip’s for dominating Mimic Social:

“Mimic Social is all about planning ahead and posting often. You do not have to promote every post, but you have to post often to keep brand recognition in consumers. Do homework to find out optimum posting time on each of the platforms and focus your promotion funds during those times. The more planning you do the more revenue you generate and the more fun you will have.”
