I met Lilani when I was the President of WIG Laos, a not-for-profit volunteer group in Vientiane. Lilani took over the management of our social media and our Facebook engagement and followers doubled. She knows just how to set up appealing and encouraging posts. I highly recommend Lilani for social media marketing and online publicity.
