Nearly 40% of those 1.1 million log in every single day.Whether you run an aviation museum, you are a warbird owner/operator social media is relevant to you because you own a brand/ a symbol/ a one-of a kind piece of aviation history. It doesn’t matter if you are a single warbird owner, a small museum, or a big warbrid operation – you have a brand. And if you have any interest in furthering your brand, acquire clients you cannot ignore social media.
