Where do you get inspired to create new content?
We get inspired by our community!! When we're working on new features, we're also thinking about how impactful it will be for our users and their workflows, and we create our content based on their input. From requesting topics and themes to explore, to participating in livestreams and our Coffee with Charli YouTube series, our community has a huge impact on content creation and they are an endless source of inspiration.
What was your biggest lesson learned from creating videos?
It’s a highly iterative process with so many moving parts, so don’t worry about getting everything perfect the first time. Have a clear, intentional vision and a plan to accomplish that vision within the resources you have and once you have accomplished that, take a step back to reflect on what you’ve learned and implement it for the next project.
