Tweetable Quotes:

All the marketing I’ve ever recommended to do is direct response, if I cannot track it, if I don’t know what is coming from, we don't do it.” - Ginger Bratzel

“They don't need to be doing a thousand things, they need to do 4, 5, a few things, and if you see it is not working, take the time and energy, even if you are doing it for free  because that’s the most precious  currency you have.” - Ginger Bratzel
