Every start up or small business has a story to tell, something that will connect potential customers to your brand. As an owner or leader you have unique opportunities to connect to potential clients and existing customers using social media – to express your companies’ core values.Use these 3 tips to express your core values and reach your customers:

  1. Define your value in human terms.  Your real value is in what you believe in, not how you make a sale. You want to find what makes your business unique and valuable – how you make others’ lives better.
