Memorable Quotes:

  • “Social media is so powerful, and it isn't a machine that you just put a post onto and, you know, feed the feed.” – Travis Brown
  • “It was a conscious decision. I'm just gonna go all in on this one platform. If I can't grow one, how can I grow them all?” – Travis Brown
  • “If you log in and you go, ‘I don't like it here,’ then you're not gonna use it. Right. So leaning into the platform that you actually use is really smart — just on a human level, like on a basic level.” – Andréa Jones
  • “That's going to move the needle more than just trying to rush something out to get something out. I think that's something people fall into.” – Travis Brown
  • “That's a challenge for a lot of business owners who don't view themselves as creators because they're so focused on pushing out something versus creating a community space where people actually wanna come back to your content again and again.” – Andréa Jones
  • “The first thing has to hook them in. If it doesn't, they're not gonna slide to the rest of the story.” – Travis Brown
  • “I get enough shares and I get enough comments to tickle the algorithm in the right way where it's going to say, ‘Hey, I think this is relevant to other people. Let's show it outside of his followers.’” – Travis Brown
  • “I love the quality that you're putting in. I think oftentimes we shy away from that as business owners. We just wanna put in five minutes of work and have it go viral. And that's really not how it works.” – Andréa Jones
  • “That's where it really becomes a fabric in a community as opposed to just another account to like.” – Travis Brown
  • “Something as simple as 15 minutes a day can make a huge difference in your business. And if someone's taking the time to leave a comment on your post, give back to them, because that is rare.” – Andréa Jones
