I own a small business where I provide services. However, when I started the business, I didn’t have that much reach, and I thought of quitting my business. But instead of quitting, I began to research and found that I was lacking in marketing and not getting enough reach. So, I started promoting my business on a various social media platform that has billions of users. It was a decision that I don’t regret.
