✔️ Channel links

Your Hellopeter business profile is an extension of your online brand and should complement your existing online channels. Provide links to your other online channels, including your business's website and social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram, to ensure maximum return on engagement investment.
