LimeGreenMedia's curator insight, February 7, 2013 6:59 AM

Getting your 'voice' right when socially engaging is exactly the same as the medias' knowing your audience skills. Yes, it's difficult, when speaking to a wide community (B2C) to hit the right note for all. But if you do, the news is going to spread further and be accessed by more.

 

This is why putting resources into training professionals and organisations to think about how they use social media (and other outlets) is absolutely key. 

 

In our training for health professionals we often use the phrase "Think of it this way: The social media community and media audiences are your patients - 'en masse'. You can get messages out using these channels quickly and across a very broad reach. This is where your patients, your audience for engagement are. You need to be here too."

It’s one of the most dreaded moments in the life of a creative person. The muse packs her bags, walks out the door, and doesn’t leave word as to when she’ll come back.

The easy thing to do, especially when a deadline is looming, is to lose perspective. The harder but much more productive mindset is to realize that you--and virtually everyone you respect and admire--have overcome blocks in the past. You might even say that it’s part of the process...

Pasquale Abiuso's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:31 AM

5 MIGLIORI CONSIGLI PER COMUNICARE IN MANIERA AUTENTICA E CREARE UNA COMMUNITY.

 

1) Scrivi come se stessi parlando nel tuo stile di sempre. Non cercare di essere diverso quando scrivi.

 

2) Tutti possono scrivere. Lascia andare la tua paura. Raccogli i pensieri e inizia a buttar giù nero su bianco. Conosci sicuramente l'argomento.

 

3) Sii molto chiaro e diretto. Scvrivi in modo semplice e lineare in modo da farti seguire dal tuo pubblico. Non sembrare sofisticato.

 

4) Sii onesto. Se vuoi persone appassionate al tuo prodotto/servizio devi dire la verità, devi ammettere qualche debolezza. Se c'è stato un problema ammettilo e dai prova di come l'hai risolto.

 

5) Crea una comunità. Se hai seguito i 4 punti precedenti, riuscirai a creare una comunità intorno alla tua azienda/prodotto/servizio. I tuoi clienti diventeranno tuoi fans.

The life of any business owner is hectic at the best of times, and the temptation to be trying to do multiple activities at the same time is strong, yet succumbing to this temptation can actually work against achieving your objectives in an effective and timely manner.


Reasearch has discovered that chronic multi-tasking can have long term chronic effects on brain function, and that frequent multi-taskers use their brains far less effectively, resulting in the conclusion that multi-tasking is a weakness rather than a strength.


This short article, discusses the research findings, and introduces two tips to assist all business owners to avoid the temptation to multi-task and become more effective managers of their businesses.
