RESOURCES FOR CURRENT VENDORS
WHEN POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA
PLEASE ONLY POST 1 TO 3 SUBJECTS A DAY, IN ORDER NOT TO DETER YOUR FOLLOWERS
Technology is an ever-changing tool that evolves daily and is a valuable tool in today’s society and even more so when it comes to business owners. Being a vendor at Uneek Findings has independent and team member responsibility. This page will assist vendors to jump start their Facebook & Instagram accounts with YouTube assistance. We do recommend that these tools be viewed on a desktop as you will be executing these steps on your mobile device. We also recommend that when creating a Facebook and/or Instagram Account, that you create a Business Page in order for any and all personal posts not interfere with your professional development, announcement of sales and of Uneek Findings’ business, its vendors and employees. When tagging Uneek Findings with a post on Social Media, do so with the utmost professionalism.
No posts connecting to political / religious views, offensive, lewd subjects, profanity and/or models under the age of 18 and without consent. Basically all the bad stuff, is a big No-No!
Uneek Findings is not responsible for any of the vendors’ use of social media and the negative and legal outcome of their posts.
