Quotes From This Episode:
AI is a helper. It’s not a replacement for people or functions. Click To Tweet
“People expect that, when you hire an agency, you can go viral straight away. But it doesn’t work like that. You have to train the algorithm, put in the work, be consistent, understand the audience, understand the platform and be strong in your brand POV.” Gia Lee
“Unfortunately I do think social media positions are still undervalued. I think a lot of that comes from just not understanding how much goes into it.” Jennifer Harmon
