Using Social Media in your Community Pharmacy Business
It all started with a question:
“Why is it so difficult for franchises and other businesses to use social media, and how can we make it easier and more affordable?”
The answers came after speaking with hundreds of individual franchise owners from a variety of industries. The result? A low-cost, high value, product that would work for any group of businesses, franchise or not. Our “scalable” approach means that we become intimately acquainted with a small number of industries, build a platform for each, and use frameworks (but not cookie-cutter solutions) for each. By focusing on select business types, we can offer a higher level of service at a reduced cost.
To this end, Scalable Social Media acquired the services of the best web development and design professionals around, teamed up with individuals who have used social media for business and formed what we now consider to be, one of the best approaches available. Our dedicated writers, editors and Community Managers are of the highest caliber – passionate and skilled. It’s our very great pleasure to use all these assets to make yours a successful social business!
