To use quotes or not to use quotes? That’s a question that often comes up for many businesses when it comes to content creation and using quote graphics.
Well, for starters, something to remember is that your content should never be 100% about you, yes you need to educate your audience, but quotes are a great way to break up the norm and keep things interesting for your audience.
