Memorable Quotes:

  • “One of the challenges that I hear a lot online in groups and in communities is that it is really hard to outsource social media. You know, to find someone who can capture your brand voice, to create graphics, and edit videos, to have the strategic side of it. So many people hire someone and then they're disappointed with the outcome.” – Andréa Jones
  • “Whether you hired a virtual assistant, a social media freelancer, an in-house person, or an agency, I'm hoping this gives you context to how you can collaborate with someone who's ultimately showing up as you and your brand on social media.” – Andréa Jones
  • “Imagine a world where your social media is completely taken off of your plate, things are consistent, you're showing up on all of the major platforms, and all you have to do is show up in your favorite way possible, whether that be your podcast, your blog, your newsletter. Well, that world is a reality for a lot of my clients.” – Andréa Jones
  • “When we think about copy stalking and her voice, we aren't PhD law School graduates from Hartford, right? …What we do is we go to her podcast for her perspective on the world and her thought leadership.

  • “I want to talk about the review process and how we review our client's work. Because it's not just about putting everything together. You do need to have a review in place. And one of the challenges I see a lot with business owners is they just want to be hands off.” – Andréa Jones
  • “Reports are key here because we don't want to keep doing the same things over and over again if it's not working. And we want to identify the things that are…We're not going to brush poor campaigns under the rug.” – Andréa Jones
  • “If we notice that this question of the day post isn't getting responses, we're going to stop doing that and replace it with one of the carousel posts. So we really want to make sure that the information that we're collecting is actually being used when it comes to your strategy and your overall support.” – Andréa Jones
