“It’s really still extremely expensive to get great engaging content, and often, through advertising agencies, it can be just pricey. There’s overhead. But when you hire a blogger to create content such as myself, whether it be an influencer or as a content creator for their properties, we know what’s trending. We know what’s going on. We’re in the nitty-gritty every single day. We can create incredibly highly engaging, highly entertaining content at a fraction of the cost.” —@ChefBillyParisi

“Algorithms are going to change. They’re going to make it harder and harder for things, organically, to get out there.” —@ChefBillyParisi

“80% will buy something based on a recommendation from a social media friend or influencer.” —@ChefBillyParisi

“There are tons of bad videos on YouTube, but there’s a ton of great content as well. I do think that people will need to invest in some of their production capabilities and overall technology just to make sure that they’re pushing forward their best stuff.” —@ChefBillyParisi



Would You Rather

Would you rather forget who you were or who everyone else was?
Oh, my gosh. I’d probably say I’d rather forget who I am. I’d rather put away my past.

Would you rather always have to take a cold shower or sleep an hour less than you need to be fully rested?
Oh, sleep an hour less, no doubt. A cold shower is the epitome of misery.

Would you rather go without TV or junk food for the rest of your life?
You know what? Yeah, I’d get rid of the food. Gosh, just don’t take away my college football.
