  34. 34. Other Key Takeaways to Keep in Mind Stay: CONSISTENT - don’t send tweets every three days or when you have a chat, send something at least every day CULTURALLY RELEVANT - don’t literally translate something ON MESSAGE - it builds trust, don’t suddenly switch from informal to formal use if you’re using Spanish. FOCUSED - send people to a good experience, try not to mix URLs. Unless you let them know the info is only available in English then say “en inglés” IN TOUCH - with your partners and influencers and of course...your audience!
