Key Quotes:

  • “When we very first meet with somebody that’s a prospect, we provide an assessment. So we go through all of their social channels, not just their digital presence, their Google My Business, everything, and kind of see areas of improvement, and we offer suggestions.” – Abby Wheeler
  • “I think it all boils down to the little moments, the culture and agency of, someone brought their dog in today, or their two year old’s coming in today. Like, that’s what people want to see. And that’s the culture of your business. And that’s what does well on social and that’s what makes our job really fun.” – Abby Wheeler
  • “We would love to have anyone that needs social media or even just the smallest amount of help. We have multiple tiers and we work with so many people that want to do the littlest thing or the whole enchilada. So we are very flexible. We’re still new so we understand that people need different things.” – Abby Wheeler
