“One of the most fulfilling parts of our jobs is getting to work with such talented people all around the world, planners in Italy and photographers in Vancouver, and being able to connect those people with the readers that are coming to our site.” (8:24)
“There are no rules anymore when it comes to weddings, it can be exactly what you want it to be, and that gets me so jazzed to come to work every single day.” (10:33)
“We want people to take away from this talk is to use your content to your advantage. Market your business with your content, figure out how to get your content funnel or your marketing funnel in place, to have a long-lasting impact on your business that lasts longer than an Instagram post.” (23:44)
