Quotes From This Episode:

“When competing against bigger organizations, it's the personal brand that’s going to make way more of a difference.” Click To Tweet
“It’s all about us making sure that we’re always staying platform-specific. So I think it’s never a case of being able to just take one piece of content and then cut and paste it over to another. It’s a lot more about being really respectful of all the nuances of the different platforms.” @content10x
“The writing team is so critical to everything that we do. Because when we are repurposing video content or audio content, it always starts with the writing team.” @content10x
