Oh my...great article for making sure your introverts are heard! 

Gregory Cheong's curator insight, October 5, 2013 4:58 AM

The modern workplace is not for the introverts 

Dr. Alison Eyring's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:54 PM

Forget that title! Introverts who perform are most welcome in modern workplaces. They need to ensure they are spending time building relationships and are getting their views heard by others. At the same time, extroverts need to ensure they are not hogging all the space in the conversation or dominating groups when they lack sufficient knowledge. A modern workplace also is an inclusive one.

Lots of companies are doing inspiring things with content strategy. To name one, I admire what IBM is doing to treat content as a business asset across the enterprise. I've never worked for a company that large, so I can't imagine the magnitude of the challenge! But, with a little help from Scott Abel, I have interviewed two IBMers who have given me a peek into Big Blue: Andrea Ames and James Mathewson.

Vinish Garg's insight:

When Marcia talks about content strategy, it is often thought provoking and beautiful. I particularly like her statements where she calls for content strategists and content marketers to work together.

Why We Love Certain Brands by @DavidBrier

Why We Love Certain Brands by @DavidBrier | Content. Startups. Stories | Scoop.it

Seth Godin wrote, “A brand’s value is merely the sum total of how much extra people will pay, or how often they choose, the expectations, memories, stories and relationships of one brand over the alternatives.”After all, there are brands we as consumers absolutely love. And there are brands we as consumers can’t stand.So what’s the difference between those we admire versus the ones we despise? And is there something we do to monitor the course our brand is taking in this battle between love and hate?...

Angela Balzano's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:44 PM

This article outlines the 7 Elements of A Successful Social Business.  These elements include 1. Define a meaningful purpose 2. Simplify the user experience 3. Designate a social executive sponsor 4. Trust your people 5. Implement and drive engagement 6. Measure adoption and recognize achievements 7. Embrace change and have fun.


Marketing and advertising has made the switch to being consumer-centered rather than company-centered.  Businesses know that they way to reach consumers is by creating communications and content that consumers want to see or is useful to them in some way.  To make this happen on a large scale, and to strengthen the relationship between business and customer, social media must be integrated in a company's business plan from the ground up.  Social media must not be a side function, there needs to be dedication, creativity, and passion for social communication within the business in order to capture your audience through social media.  Those who sparing invest in social media will surely be left behind and irrelevant in the near future.  -Angela

Philippe Trebaul's curator insight, March 20, 12:38 AM

What is the common thread in the following statistics? Thirty-six percent increase in brand awareness, 66% less time to bring products to market, 20% improvement in customer conversions, 15% increase in successful innovations and new ideas?

Answer: These are just some of the quantitative results attributed to becoming a social business. With dramatic benefits like these, why aren't allbusinesses social by now? The fact is, becoming a social business can be quite difficult, especially without a well-thought-out implementation plan.

It means rethinking what our interactions with technology need to be - should we be using augmented reality? Or simplified reality (using digital technology to provide clear detail of what the user needs to focus on, and stripping away all the rest)? Should we be thinking about how we control the Internet of Things so that it doesn't get carried away - for example, ordering things from our fridge that we don't want or need? Who will take responsibility for unwanted products that are ordered by connected objects?

Applying Transformations To Responsive Web Design with XSLT and Tritium

Applying Transformations To Responsive Web Design with XSLT and Tritium | Content. Startups. Stories | Scoop.it

Transformations are a simple yet powerful technique for separating content and presentation in Web applications. Yet, outside of enterprise and data-processing circles, transformations have failed to gain popularity through XSLT. As a result, Web developers are liable to think that transformations “don’t apply to me,” even though they work with HTML, a structured format ripe for transformation. Thankfully, new transformation frameworks are on the horizon, including work by the inventor of Sass, that hold the promise of a revival.

In this article, we will reintroduce transformations and explore their applications to mobile and responsive design. We will not only teach the old dog new tricks, but show that transformations are relevant to everyone who deals with HTML.

No time to read? Blinkist wants to help. | Content. Startups. Stories | Scoop.it

As sad as it may be, many people just don't have the time to read these days. When we say 'read', we don't mean 140-character-long rants on Twitter...

 

.... To give you an idea of what kind of books you can read in 15 minutes, there’s everything from Popular Science and Business & Career, to Entrepreneurship and Health & Happiness. In terms of specific titles, well, there’s Richard Dawkins’ The Greatest Show on Earth, Barack Obama’s The Audacity of Hope, and the 2005 classic Freakonomics, from University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times journalist Stephen J. Dubner.

 

Blinkist wants to help.
