Number 4 resonated most with me. We all know that we need to change the way we do things to moe the organisation forward.  That means challenging ourselves, our colleagues and our direct reports in a supportive and constructive way.  Are you able to do this as a leader?

 

Remember...If you are not thinking, you’re not learning new things.  If you’re not learning, you’re not growing – and over time becoming irrelevant in your work.  Once we become irrelevant in our work, we become irrelevant in the competetive marketplace - scary stuff, but we have the power to do something about it!

Jenny Hazan's insight:

An interesting take on change communications, accepting that although our company hierarchies are formal and layered, in reality businesses are far more fluid and therefore need comms to match.

Four brands to inspire your content marketing strategy

Four brands to inspire your content marketing strategy | Follow the yellow brick road | Scoop.it

Content marketing is about telling a story that resonates with your audience and finding a relevant channel to deliver it.

It’s the loyal followers that then spread the brand message, these days, commonly, but not exclusively, via social media. Well that’s the theory. Getting it right can be hard.

Sometimes we all have to go back to the drawing board to gather ideas and inspiration. For a recent content marketing workshop we hosted, I did just that. I wanted to showcase the brands that are doing content marketing brilliantly.

OK, I admit, some of the companies I used as examples have massive budgets, but they still have their unique challenges.

What all the brands have in common is the creative flair, the ability to change direction, adapting to new environments and communicating with the people that are most important to them – their customers – in a variety of ways.

Smart companies are the ones that are connecting with their customers online. By doing so, they are getting a better understanding of their customers as well as the online conversation around their brand. But, In most cases, there’s an alarming disconnect between who the brand thinks its customers are, and vice-versa. Usually, this disconnect is because the brand and customer have no real interaction with each other.

The Fish Firm's comment, February 12, 2013 6:52 PM
@TimOKeefe Yes it is! I usually start out w/ clients with the analogy that Social Media should be treated re communication such as their phone or email while that conversation is public knowledge such as a bill board or magazine ad. It is scary for some but as you stated it is vital to know what consumers are saying!

This type of communication takes a long time for more established business owners to adjust too and adopt! It's so counter intuitive to what they have ever done. The Gen X & Y business owners totally get it - yet you'll be hard pressed to find them in the same business model as this older generation. That's why Erik Qualman said "The ROI of Social Media is that you'll still be in business in five years."
