Daily Video Challenge

I found an article that talked about using videos for email marketing.

Interesting reading, as always. But near the bottom of the post was a discussion about how to hone your video presence and your video skills.

That quote is from a 2019 article written by Kimanzi Constable titled "Facebook and Instagram Going Dark Should Be a Wake Up Call for Entrepreneurs."
