Yeah we get it, you want sales. Everybody does. But that doesn't happen overnight. Until you understand what your objective should be - be it building brand awareness, increasing engagement with your existing audience or driving traffic to your website - all your tweets and beautifully crafted Instagram photos will drive little or no return.
