Key Quotes:

  • “We need to be mindful about how we enable people on the other ends of these connections. To connect with us, get to know us, to feel invested in our personality, in our success and to make them feel like we’re invested in them as well.” – Tyler Lessard
  • “If all else fails, start with your website. Look at what you’re trying to accomplish there. Could video help me tell a bigger, better story here? That’s going to create a more emotional connection with those buyers.” – Tyler Lessard
  • “The best strategy for video on social, is to create video content that is meant for the social networks. But that being said, many of us have a lot of great content that we can repurpose and reuse on these different channels. And, that’s absolutely an area that you can start and get value from quickly.” – Tyler Lessard
