Key Takeaways:

"When you're first starting out on any social platform, I think the key is to FOCUS. FOCUS is a great acronym for Follow One Course Until Success." - April Meese

If you're doing too many things, you're not able to do them well. It's true that if you can show up on different platforms, you do create a little bit of what they call Omnipresence, where you're being seen in multiple locations where your ideal clients hang out. But it also might be hard to make real connections that way." - April Meese

"Instead of going one mile wide, but only an inch deep in terms of your connections. It's better to go one inch wide and a mile deep with your connections, so you're working on that one platform, really maximizing the connections that you're growing." - April Meese

"And the thing about video is, it helps build your authority. When you are on camera, you are seen or perceived as an expert. And when you're building that authority, you will build trust, so that builds your credibility." - April Meese

"You want to create content that somebody will save because it's not proven, but tests have been done, that if you did a piece of content and someone saved that, you know, the little flag of the algorithm notices it more and makes the post higher." - Vicky Martin

"Now it's all about having good quality, and only posting one piece of really good quality per day." - Karen Betts
