Anything your organization does — whether online, at events, or even internally — THAT is where you are displaying the brand voice. I don’t need to tell you how important your company’s brand is, but it’s imperative to develop a recognizable voice and tone.  You want customers, prospects, employees, and general audiences to get it, without being confused or asking questions about the brand.  And while everything companies do, needs to have a defined voice to truly capture audiences, many miss the mark leaving their brand confusing or lost.  But a great way to create a brand that stands out…

Social Media in The Workplace: What Every Executive Should Know

Funny to think back when Facebook first rolled out public access — I was sitting in my dorm room in 2004 and remember signing up without any anticipation of how momentous this new form of media would become.  Speculating in hindsight, what college student back then could have imagined that social media in the workplace would become central to digital business? Of course, many students were thinking about this; admittedly I was not one of them however!   Social Media in the Workplace Today A generous decade and then some later, social media has shifted away from any stigma as…

How to Use Educational Content to Drive Brand Engagement

Educational content that is unconditionally proffered by a company is a low-cost means to enable brand exposure and foster engagement with the general public, prospects, competitors, and existing clients or customers. The overarching criteria for every type of educational content explored and differentiated in this piece is unconditional accessibility. Without sincere generosity of access on the company’s part and authentic content therein, I’d argue the prefix here of “educational” is more appropriately replaced by: promotional.   What’s So Educational About This Piece Anyway? The obvious pitfall of writing a piece about educational content along the lines that I’ve established is…
