Keeping it Local – Free Social Media Guide for Businesses
As a part of the Keeping it Local SL campaign, the City has partnered with San Leandro marketing company, Blue Arris, to release a FREE Small Business Social Media Guide.
Today it is more crucial than ever for businesses to boost their online presence. With retail and services going largely touch-less last year, consumers have shifted much of their spending online.

Check out the guide to find tips on:
- Creating content that fits your ‘brand’
