Thoughts from Mark:

  • They want to make Facebook an all video platform within a year.

  • It’s as if we are trained to post on social media.

  • Start using videos now to maximize your business.

  • It’s not about the people who know you.  It’s about those who don’t know you.

  • Instagram is a market that is becoming saturated.

  • Majority of your clients will be local. Local is gold.

  • Videos are the closest you will get to a handshake or a phone call. 

  • A lot of my communications happen directly on Instagram.

  • There shouldn’t be any confusion as to what your Instagram grid is about. 

  • Just be authentic.
