What’s your one tip for becoming a social pro?
Don’t obsess about the ‘social’ part of the pro. Learn the business inside and out and get curious about your business. The social channels are how you translate that story, the more endemic business knowledge you have, the smarter you’ll be when any new tool, tactic or platform comes down the pipe.
If you could do a Skype call with any living person, who would it be?
Amber would choose to have a call with the one and only, Michelle Obama. Together, they would kick back with a glass of wine and indulge in an evening of ‘girl talk’ and other points of interest.
