Memorable Quotes:

  • “When we’re looking at video and it’s effectiveness, I want to know what consumers say about video. I want to see that data.”
  • “As consumers, [Instagram Story ads] don't feel as intrusive as other ads; the content being created there is native to the stories; it looks like an Instagram Story.”
  • “If you think about how you interact with video content, even if you don’t click like or leave a comment or anything, just by looking at that content, you’re telling the algorithm that content is more valuable than the static images around it.”
  • “Focus on creating quality work that actually captures the attention of your audience, and spend more time on that quality work than creating quantities of posts that people aren’t engaging with.”
  • “It wasn’t polished, it wasn’t perfect, but it got the top engagement of the month because I just kind of showed up as I was.”
