HerKallen media enjoys when our work is helpful to the community. So offering our SEO and other marketing skills pro-bono is a natural fit for us. And that’s why we love services like Catcafire, which help connect us to people who need some help with online marketing. This Kallen Media charity work was all done on the Catchafire platform.
But we don’t always get a chance to talk about what these nonprofits do for us. Because here at Kallen media charity work is important to us, we’re going to change that! We have officially been offering help on Catchafire for a whole year. So In this blog post, we are going to tell you about the charities we assisted.
