Gary-Vaynerchuk“The single most important strategy in content marketing today is video. Whether it’s video on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Youtube, the content you need to be thinking about creating and marketing on social for your business is video. Period.”

–Gary Vaynerchuk

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAzAAAAAJDE1MWZhYTFkLTkxZmItNDRhYS05ZTg1LTkwNGExYzkyN2YyYQ“I think the most important thing with social today, and going forward, is to be at one place at one time. So many times we’re trying to be on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, LinkedIn.  We can’t be everywhere. So find the place where your people are, your prospects, your customers, your advocates.  Be there, and do a great job of producing content there and engaging with folks.”

–Chris Moody

375x375_Joe_Pulizzi-300x300“Every channel that you leverage should have its own “why.” So strategically, why are we communicating on that channel? What is the audience that we’re communicating to? And what is the ultimate behavior we’d like to see? So you should do a “why” exercise with every channel you use.”

–Joe Pulizzi

23437a8“Social video should be short. Social video should encapsulate quick, concise points, and should point to something else. Video for video’s sake I think doesn’t do anything to enhance your brand, and what’s your call to action for that video. A lot of success can be had by taking a video and putting different components of it in different places using a longer-form video on your website.”

–Stacy Adams

TojMavg9“I think it’s a real mistake for brands to focus on creating satellites of content in social platforms. So I think the real focus is really focusing on creating a core owned piece of digital property or content marketing program and then looking at social platforms as mechanisms of distribution.”

–Michael Brenner
