Each week Buffer’s brilliant team answers your questions, exploring marketing strategies and tactics to help you grow your business through social media and build a brand your customers love.

Instagram champions, Girls in Marketing, have a podcast covering tips and tricks to help you get started in the industry. As well as digital marketing news and expert advice from marketing professionals. We found their episode The Ins and Outs of Influencer Marketing with Hester Bates, really interesting.
