Week 12 - Catching Up, More Instagram & Dealing with Haters

Well it’s a little over halfway in the Go Digital Course and that makes it a great time to take a rest or catch up, but just for a week.

I’ve also found a tonne of goodies from around the internet, for those of you who have kept up with the course and want to take a look.

There are links to info on:

  • How to use Instagram Stories
  • How to use Instagram Direct Messaging
  • Networking for Introverts (but Extroverts could take notes)
  • How to deal with Haters & negative comments
  • Building a Brand
