David: “How Do You Handle a New Platform Release like a TikTok or an IGTV? How do you make the decision whether to invest in those or not?”

Ben: We don’t typically want to be first movers in the space. I know there’s a lot of people that always want to be in the first new thing when it comes out, but I want to be able to look into it first.

We need to use our resources that are gonna best benefit us and our fans, right? If its TikTok, IG Stories or IGTV. it may not always be effective for us to go full boar on one. We want stick our toe in the water and check it out, but it’s not something we want to get tied to and get our fans invested in, and then it’s something we have to pull the plug on. Thats not good for anyone!”
