Coca-Cola’s New Corporate Website Aims to Refresh the World Through Storytelling

Coca-Cola’s New Corporate Website Aims to Refresh the World Through Storytelling | SME's, Management, Busines, Finance & Leadership | Scoop.it

According to Coca-Cola, the corporate website is dead. Inspired by the power of storytelling has to cultivate engagement, the company has re-launched their corporate website, “Coca-Cola Journey,” as a highly visual, sharable digital magazine. Featuring content themed around pop culture, social media, brand history, marketing campaigns, recipes, career advice, and more the website is a far cry from the traditional corporate website – in a good way.

LinkedIn is a major social network, and yet, it remains under-utilized by a vast majority of people.

 

That probably has to do with the fact that the site is a little confusing. Sure, the team has trimmed things down and removed quite a few features, but some of the main ones are still there. And they rock!

 

With that said, how do you help people find your profile? And is there a way to connect with people beyond the Inbox? TJ McCue answers these questions and more in his article. He has compiled a list of fantastic tools that will help you make the most of the social network.

The article talks about how to be successful coming from those who are extremely successful, such as Mark Zuckerberg. It says what type of attitude to have when addressing things. The attitude you should have is one of not being afraid to take chances and persevere when the going gets tough.

Kira Saini's curator insight, March 6, 2014 9:25 AM

This article is discussing the skills that successful entrepreneurs have. Out of all the skills, striving to work harder and increase your intelligence to reduce making mistakes can be connected to them. This article basically says that learning is more important to being successful than proving you are smart.

So, you’ve written a great post and promoted it through the regular channels (Facebook and Twitter), hoping to rake huge traffic. Then, two days later, you realize that only 50 people have visited your blog. Frustrating, isn’t it?

 

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be. There are ways to make your content viral. You just have to know them. For example:

 

Powerful headlinesLeaving comments on other people’s blogsCreating infographicsUsing emotions

 

Of course, this is far from enough.

 

Not sure where to go for ideas? Neil Patel’s article would be a very good start.

Your Brain on Poverty: Why Poor People Seem to Make Bad Decisions

Your Brain on Poverty: Why Poor People Seem to Make Bad Decisions | SME's, Management, Busines, Finance & Leadership | Scoop.it
And why their "bad" decisions might be more rational than you'd think.

-

In August, Science published a landmark study concluding that poverty, itself, hurts our ability to make decisions about school, finances, and life, imposing a mental burden similar to losing 13 IQ points. 

It was widely seen as a counter-argument to claims that poor people are "to blame" for bad decisions and a rebuke to policies that withhold money from the poorest families unless they behave in a certain way. After all, if being poor leads to bad decision-making (as opposed to the other way around), then giving cash should alleviate the cognitive burdens of poverty, all on its own.

Sometimes, science doesn't stick without a proper anecdote, and "Why I Make Terrible Decisions," a comment published on Gawker's Kinja platform by a person in poverty, is a devastating illustration of the Science study. I've bolded what I found the most moving, insightful portions, but it's a moving and insightful testimony all the way through.

Tactical Serendipity

 

It requires sensitivity and highly tuned observation, so that we do not miss things like unexpected opportunity, new ideas, needs, or the ability to establish clear goals and objectives that find good in our world.

 

You are literally 140 characters away from an interaction that can change your learning or life. You are one "like" button, one shared experience away from a transformative encounter.

 

I cannot tell you who that will be with, when that might happen, or in what way things will change.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2014 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!
