Changes in Social Media

With 2020 coming to an end we took a moment to reflect on all its changes (COVID-19, protests, global recession, and more) and how it has affected the social media landscape. As we look back over the year we realized a lot has changed, from the way we work and go to school, the way we shop, and even the way we greet others. With all of these changes in such a short period of time we have really seen social media take a hit in engagements in likes, especially with Facebook and Instagram on a crusade to fight fake news. With cannabis being part of this it has made it a lot harder for cannabis business who are just starting out to be seen. Join Kat as she takes us through the challenges brought on by 2020 and how it is affecting social media marketing and campaigns.

Predictions for 2021

With the recent election bringing recreational and medical cannabis victories, we are predicting that the new year will bring new state legislation, a hiring boom, and continued growth throughout the industry. With the recent acceptance among voters, and states looking to boost their tax dollars coming out of the pandemic, we are predicting New York, Virginia, Connecticut, New Mexico and Maryland, among others to legalize cannabis in some form. With the new states coming on board and hopefully more to follow MSPs should start to plan as they will be the first to be called to help design the network infrastructure as well as camera placement for dispensaries, grow operations, and more. Join Duane Roebuck as he shares his predictions for 2021.
