# I'm sourcing a new social management tool. It has to support FB, IG and LinkedIn. Its main purpose is for bulk posting, so the features most important to me are being able to add in a lot of social profiles without paying crazy premiums and scheduling posts, that's it. Any suggestions? ... See MoreSee Less

Any recommendation on a screen sharing tool good for on-call guided demos of our saas product that restricts screenshots?
Thank you in advance! ... See MoreSee Less
Hi Tyler! By restricting screenshots, do you mean restricting who can screen share in the meeting?
Not sure if this solves your problem, but there are a couple of tools I've seen for building demos like this, for example: www.walnut.io/
I doubt there is anything out there that can block a prospect from using their own device to take screenshots.
You'll need to provide more details. Is this in Desktop? Mac? Windows? Mobile? which platform?

Where's the best place to recruit sales reps / BDRs? Specifically for a startup. ... See MoreSee Less
Indeed or LinkedIn - just looking for recent grads that have shown some aptitude for sales (ie did something in university or a side hustle). AEs are a different story but I’d still say those job boards. If you can’t find them there, best bet is Adam Gellert from Linkus Group.
Connect with Palette Skills. They train and provide great candidates. My son got his BDR role through them
www.jobilla.com/en/ This will help you find people who aren’t even looking!
Send your job description to local colleges grad program placement coordinators. Most colleges I know have an individual who manages all grad placements and internships. I’ve also been in touch with specific professors of grad programs and asked who are the top students for xxx skillsets. If you need additional guidance drop me a DM. My firm handles a number of senior key roles for startups but I’d be glad to give you a few more ideas as I’ve worked with several local colleges.

I am currently dealing with a concerning issue regarding non-payments and breach of contract with some of my clients (startup) that I was previously associated with. In light of this, I am seeking legal assistance and guidance. If anyone has had positive experiences with a lawyer or legal team specializing in contract disputes and can offer a referral, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you kindly in advance for any support or suggestions you can provide. ... See MoreSee Less
We've had great experiences with Wildeboer Dellelce. PM me if you'd like an intro. We used them more for a raise (which they did themselves) and some HR stuff (which they put us in touch with another firm). They'd know better than me if this is in their wheelhouse or the other firms, but either way I'd recommend.
Speaking from experience, keep in mind the magnitude of the breach and recoverable damages. If it’s something like $2mil, drop Torys a line, if it’s less than $10k, do small claims if your really want to annoy, but you’ll have to handle the recovery yourself.
FWIW you have to have a stick (lawyer) in one hand and honey (settle) in the other. Nothing ever really goes to court - people just settle if they feel they need to. If you have an ongoing relationship with the debtors that’s far more leverage than anything else.
Matthew Fisher is very good [email protected]

Who’s done advertising on LinkedIn? I have an idea for a campaign I want to try, but I need to learn how to structure it within their framework.

Hi, I run LinkedIn campaigns for our company. If you have any questions feel free to DM
Don’t bother. LinkedIn ad fraud rates are close to 100%
I can say quite confidently that last time I tried LinkedIn ads for 3 clients about 6 months ago, this issue was still unsolved. It’s criminal the level of ad fraud they are perpetrating. www.reuters.com/technology/us-judge-dismisses-claims-that-linkedin-overcharged-advertisers-2021-1...
Facebook isn’t much better these days. Maybe 50% ad fraud.
We run multiple campaigns for our clients on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google Ads. LinkedIn works best for B2B if your product or service is unique. Otherwise, the quality of data and leads is extremely low. To maximize ROAS, you need to retarget your audiences. Facebook works best for B2C, especially if you have engaging images of the product/service to build awareness and generate conversions over time. If your product/service is a commodity, most likely, the ROI will be negative on both platforms.
They will assign someone to help you get it going, you get free support for 45 days. The guy we got was quite helpful. The settings are endless and not intuitive but if can use them to really narrow down your target audience and make a really good ad it can be pretty effective.
i find their rate really high, work arounds seems to be more cost efficient. the last time i looked

Hi All! Something weird happened with a client's Facebook Business page I took over from a previous marketing team. I can't find the business account associated with the page. I tried all of my clients logins. Does anyone know of any tools to locate a business account? I have the account number. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
It is possible that they never set it up or it was set up by an agency and they were never added to it. Facebook is dumb like that
It’s probably not set up. You don’t need business manager to have a business page.
