Learn what went wrong - Get more feedback - Rework the strategy - Present the learnings to the client - Get up, dust off, make another piece of content. If first idea succeeds – again, take the learnings and make 5 even better ideas! Don’t be a one trick pony. 16 Twitter: @krystianszastok | Web: krystianszastok.co.uk
