Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

 

Social media are revolutionizing business communication—even companies that don't use these tools yet are affected by new audience behaviors and expectations.

Is your business communication textbook informed by real-life, hands-on experience with social media? We invite you to try a simple experiment.

1. Google the following keywords: Bovee Thill social media

 

How many results do you see?

2. Now search for social media along with the names of the authors of your current text.

 

How do the results compare with the Bovee and Thill search?

Which authors' names do you see associated with social media sites, such as Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Flickr, SlideShare, SlideBoom, Authorstream, StumbleUpon, Scribd, Bag the Web, About.Me, Twylah,  Scoop.it, Skype, WhatsApp, Yahoo Messenger, Tumblr, BombBomb, PRLog, Symbaloo, Storify, Plaxo, Bovee and Thill's Business Communication Blog, Business Communication Headline News, Instapaper, and YouTube?

The answer: You'll see Bovee and Thill associated with dozens of social media sites, including the 34 sites mentioned above. All other business communication authors: practically none.

The reason for this discrepancy is that Bovee and Thill use the social media tools they write about, and they've been active and innovative practitioners for years now. This deep experience is reflected in their textbooks, with thoroughly integrated coverage of social media practices and dozens of real-world social media cases and student exercises. For other authors, social media appear to be largely an abstract concept.

Which textbooks would you and your students benefit from the most?

Balancing Emotional and Logical Appeals for Persuasive Messages

One of the most important decisions to make when crafting persuasive messages is finding the optimum balance of emotional and logical appeals. Few message appeals are entirely emotional or entirely logical, so knowing enough about your audience to mix just the right blend of appeals will help you create more effective messages for both internal and external audiences.

Sharing Negative Information Without Being Negative

Sharing unwelcome information is an unpleasant fact of life for all business professionals. No one likes to receive bad news, and no healthy person likes to give it, so these messages can take a toll on everyone involved.

 

However, it is possible to minimize the emotional impact these messages have, because you can take steps to share negative information without being negative. Learning how to craft these messages with sensitivity and honesty will make the task easier for you as a writer and the experience less traumatic for the recipients of your messages.

 

This video is ideal for instructors teaching business communication, teaching business writing, or teaching management communication.
