01 Be strategic. Clearly define what you want to accomplish through the Greater Montréal Ambassadors Network, and how it will integrate with your overall marketing and communication plans.

04 Be engaged. Commit the necessary time and passion to your social media activities and do not leave extended gaps in your involvement.
