Four years and seven iOS versions ago, our forefathers only needed to create marketing content on a daily basis. Now we are engaged in constant communication, testing whether any social media manager—let alone brand—can long endure. This is where Social Sidekick meets you. By signing up for our week newsletter, you can leverage every holiday (like President’s Day), cultural event, and movie release into your calendar so that your marketing efforts are not in vain. It is altogether fitting and proper that we do this (and honor the birthday of Abraham Lincoln with this variation on the Gettysburg Address).
