"The Social Media Audit showed us a number of things we are doing well and shined a light on several opportunities for growth. More importantly, once the audit was complete the folks at Finalsite helped me develop an affordable and measurable strategy to address the opportunities for growth. When I presented our marketing and advertising strategy at a board meeting earlier this fall, our trustees and head of school responded with enthusiasm at the data-based decisions we are making as a result of the audit."

Becky Marsh, Director of Communications and Marketing
