- “I always think of those social media posts as something that is often like that first impression you’re making to people.”
- “A lot of people think consistent means it has to look the same. And it doesn’t have to look the same, it just has to have the same vibe of your brand throughout all of your touchpoints with your target audience.”
- “If someone’s looking at your post for the very first time and has never seen any of your content before, they should get it.”
- “You definitely want to err on the side of clear vs. cute. People have short attention spans and if they don’t understand something, they’ll just move on.”
