- Find ways of engaging your audience with the material by personalizing it (more on this during the training)
- Commit to sharing VV material with your network at least 3X a week or as often as you like but do it in a thoughtful way and analyze whether constant updates are as effective with your audience as are biweekly, for example (but most importantly, be effective and balanced with how you share (see below).
