Full Episode Details
Social media professionals can become so focused on producing non-stop content that they don’t stop to consider whether they’re making originals or prints in their social media.
In other words, do you let creativity drive your social media decisions? Or, are you led by what others are doing in hopes of obtaining similar outcomes? Ron Tite, the Founder of Church+State claims that every artist knows you make more money from the print than the original. But that print doesn’t exist without a brilliant original.
Over time, social media has become more about the media and less about the social, but is it time for a change? If you want to cut through the noise and win your audience’s time and trust, you need to ditch the jargon and unleash your inner artist.
