Latest Question – Hi y’all. I am new to this group and need some help/ideas. I am the Administrator and Marketing Director for a new Montessori School. This is our third year and I am a social media queen in general but enrollment has been super low for a lot of reasons. (Oh, I am one month into my job). Was told all my ads need to be free and not pay for anything… any extra ideas?
