Over the past two years, small businesses across the nation have been negatively affected by the pandemic. Small businesses are well known for being the backbone of our country and a large representation of what living out the American dream looks like. One company looked at this as an opportunity to give back to the individuals in the community and help bring their businesses back to life.
The sōsh team worked to research, vet, and contract five unique influencers that would generate 7 million impressions.
Setting up the Print Queue
