Weekly Love: Week 127
I turned 25 on Wednesday, and as I celebrate a quarter of a century I want to share my next big venture with you all. Some of you may already have seen it on social media, but let me introduce you to Glendon Studios: a new, Pinterest-focused social media consultancy I have been working on to help small businesses and lifestyle influencers harness the power of Pinterest to grow their audience and spread the word! Be sure to check out our blog for handy marketing tips, (and follow us on Instagram for the same) see what services we offer, or get in touch if you would like some guidance on how to grow your Pinterest presence, or you’d like to hire someone to manage your page so you can focus on creating great products and killer content!
