A great way to find customers is to meet them right where they are. An increasing number of Hilltown residents are using social media to connect not only with friends and family but local businesses and brands that they support and utilize. Making well-designed posts on Instagram and Facebook and using photography and tasteful text can help encourage social media users to become customers and help get your name and products out there.
