    Zoe, your blog post offered a lot of information to grow a business using social media marketing. I think it was a very beginner-friendly marketing read, and the information you gave did not seem intimidating. Some suggestions I would have include using heading levels so that headings stand out and using anchor text for image sources instead of pasting the full link. You have some great information in your post, but I think that the full links cause some disconnect and make the formatting seem less cohesive. Something that I really enjoyed about your blog post was your use of graphics you have made for your business.

    I love the organization and style of writing as its very simple, educating, and also very visually appealing. i like the call to action you have at the end of your blog which would attract a lot of people into your desired landing page. Very good job !
