Debra Walker's curator insight, October 14, 2013 5:28 PM

This is a very interesting way of negotiating buy-in to plans that need to work for everyone as well as being functionally efficient and working within a budget.  

 

It would also be important to see how the 15 people that were selected as the ambassadors were selected for their roles, particularly if they are making decisions for the entire team.  Credibility within the tribe is an important factor to consider when placing individuals in the roles of "spokespeople" for others.

Rodolphe Balay's curator insight, October 24, 2013 9:01 AM

"To bring out the potential in every team member, we go beyond the typical meetings and favor team games and storytelling."

Why Your Small Business Marketing Is Failing

Why Your Small Business Marketing Is Failing | Technology & Business | Scoop.it

Takeaway. It’s not about marketing your small business. It’s about marketing your story.

 

You have a business you love and you want to tell the world about it so they love it too. Seems simple enough, right? Well, small business marketing isn’t as simple as it seems because it is more than just telling the world about your business, it’s about telling your story along with your business story. It’s about developing relationships not just making connections. It’s about creating valuable content not just spreading a message.

 

Marketing is something everyone thinks they can do and it can be overwhelming, especially if marketing isn’t your area of expertise. I get the need to tighten the purse strings. I get that you have no budget and you are a one-man or -woman show. It is doable and you can do it! You just need to be armed with the right kind of information and expectations....
