Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, November 21, 9:26 PM
In putting together this report, the group concluded that the challenges of business buying into and working towards the SDGs are also the opportunities for business to lead in a field that is still emerging. They discovered that this requires a specific set of four business capabilities: 
1- The ability to look at the long-term 
2- The ability to think systemically 
3- The ability to work with others collaboratively 
4- The willingness to accept that not all of the benefits will accrue to one company, but that the benefits will be shared 
Vrettos believes that forward-thinking organizations understand the risks and opportunities that come from climate change, resource security, food insecurity, and health issues, but most importantly, they understand that their successes are tied to the success of their local communities. Embracing the findings of this report will give businesses the tools they need to deliver on the SDGs.

Facebook Announces New Ad Options for Car Dealers

Facebook Announces New Ad Options for Car Dealers | Business Support | Scoop.it
It may not seem an immediately obvious conclusion, but a lot of people are using Facebook in their search to buy a car.

I mean, it makes sense, people are using Facebook for almost everything these days, at least in some capacity - but most are probably not aware of just how influential The Social Network can be in the vehicle purchase process.

According to research released by Facebook earlier this year, digital platforms influence some 70% of all auto sales, while social media alone is set to influence 40% of auto sales by 2020. Instagram’s also popular among those looking to buy a car, making Facebook more broadly a key platform for automotive sellers as they look to connect where their customers are active.

Catering to this, Facebook has this week announced two new ad options for auto companies looking to maximize their messaging across platform.

Why You Shouldn’t Do Keyword Research for Your Blog Posts (And What to Do Instead)

Why You Shouldn’t Do Keyword Research for Your Blog Posts (And What to Do Instead) | Business Support | Scoop.it
Researching the right keyword for a blog post is often the first step taken when writing.

We’ve been told for years that we need to find the right keywords if we want any shot at ranking high in the SERPs.

We need to get the right keywords if we want our content to be relevant.

But that’s simply not true anymore. On top of that, you don’t have the time that it takes to scout long-tail keywords all day.

There are actually much more important things to focus on when it comes to blog posts.
