"Having a higher frequency is important. If someone sees your ad once [they'll] keep scrolling by but if they see it three or four times, they might remember the logo, or the image." -Cordova Pleasants
"When you spend the time to create your custom audiences, you're serving your ad up to people who actually care about it and want to see it." -Cordova Pleasants
"I like the details because they point me in the direction of what I see is working, but I also find I can take a step back and look at it objectively and keep focusing on my big picture goal." -Cordova Pleasants
"I will have a heavy use of social media and I'm going to be using the 80/20 rule, 80% is useful information and 20% is sales pitch. Relevant information includes: fashion, food, travel, adventure, pets, family and chocolate." -Cordova Pleasants
"Chocolate is one of those topics that women just love so when you combine chocolate with one of your other topics, you're hitting two points and people gravitate toward that." -Cordova Pleasants
