Common sense is not so common

If it were, we wouldn’t keep killing communication. Here are three ways to stop killing communication:

 

# 1
Wake up and face reality
Don’t ignore reality. Or ignore facts. Or ignore you audience. It’s not about you. It’s about them. Reality is their reality.

 

# 2
Kill your darlings
Whether it’s an idea or a process or editing information, killing your darlings is difficult. But, reality says people can only absorb communication in certain ways. So force yourself to keep it simple.

# 3
Stop skipping steps
It’s tempting to skip steps. We are often short on time, money and everything else. Ask yourself:

- What’s my business goal?
- Who is my audience?
- What is the message?
- What content tells the message?
- Which channel is best?
- Is it working?

 

It’s often the beginning and the end that get overlooked. If communication isn’t aligned with the business or measured….what’s the point?

Blogging for the future | Publishing for the present! | Bosco Anthony - Business Growth Strategist

Blogging for the future | Publishing for the present! | Bosco Anthony - Business Growth Strategist | Posts I've commented on | Scoop.it

Most of my internet marketing friends and myself write blogs in advance. Sometimes we even write stuff out for content to be published a month out. I currently have 20 articles set to auto publish for the next few weeks and I currently have about 20 other drafts that I am currently working on. We blog for the future because this way we are never worried about the current or present blog situation. We publish content that is ready at the present moment and we write out new blog posts for content we will publish in the future. This way I am never at pressure to come out with urgent content and I can also take time off on a vacation without worrying about content.


I started implementing this strategy at the start of this year and I have successfully managed to post 5 blog posts a week. What strategy are you implementing for your blog?

Thanks for the post! I think it’s a necessity to plan ahead if you’re aiming for a successful blog: figure out which posts should go in which order, planning for a series etc. And planning definitely makes you more relaxed to your blogging approach. Knowing you have relevant content going out relaxes your mind and make your brain invent even more relevant posts. Thanks again for sharing!

Telling tales: Storytelling as a communication tool | Diary of an internal communicator

Telling tales: Storytelling as a communication tool | Diary of an internal communicator | Posts I've commented on | Scoop.it

How do you make your story compelling? Here are 10 tips for telling a good tale:


- Know your audience - what are their needs and interests, what issues matter to them? If you work in an organisation, listen, ask questions, collect evidence, engage with differing perspectives beforehand
- Connect by adding a human element to your story…connect the abstract, numbers, data to someone
- Keep it short, simple and relevant to the context
- Appeal to shared values and beliefs
- Be authentic and speak from the heart – your passion and sincerity will shine through
- Be inclusive and use ‘we’ and not ‘I’ , ‘they’, ‘them’
- Engross your audience with the use of metaphors, analogies and make use of specific details
- Bring your characters to life – appearance, occupation, department they work in …
- Base your story on reality…otherwise you will get found out eventually
- Make use repetition – memorable phrases or sound bites
