About this project
Can social-media really help a business grow? We want to find out. We've asked a team of creative thinkers in digital marketing to help take a local Denver business, Big Papa's Barbeque, from zero social presence to big-time social network strategist. At the end of the 30-day project, they'll hand the reins back to Big Papa's to continue on course. Track updates here on this blog and on Twitter with the hashtag #socialsauce. And, please let us know what you think of our efforts along the way.
