As a social media marketing agency, one of our primary tasks here at EDK is to not only understand our clients’ business, but to also understand human behavior in relation to marketing and promoting our clients. There is always something new to learn in this area, especially when it comes to social media marketing, which is ever-changing and developing as a newer tool in today’s marketing world.
