Social Strategies to Leave Behind in 2017

And 2017 is here! The new year is a great time to set new goals and vow to banish bad old habits.

Keeping up with social marketing trends, tactics and travails is hard enough. Why not spend your time where you'll get more value—and let some other things go?

What will you keep in your strategy in 2017? Which will you banish?
