Difference between content marketing, SEO

Content marketing is not SEO. While they might overlap, content marketing and SEO are two distinct types of digital marketing. They are, however, mutually beneficial.

To hell in a handcart: Good news for smart businesses

Consumers who have never had it so bad are presenting service-led businesses with an unprecedented opportunity to stand out. Smart business simply has to offer respite from a perfect storm of rising prices, strikes, violence and failures of leadership.

Employees - brand champions of organisations

Focusing on employee-centric strategy before being client-centric should be the key of every organisation's success. It seems most organisations have made clients their first priority instead of those serving the needs/wants of the clients. Customer advocacy is important but it begins with ensuring that the employees live and breathe the brand before any external stakeholder, which will result in customer satisfaction.

Be generous with your electronic communication budget
Be generous with your electronic communication budget

A generous electronic communication budget will save costs elsewhere in your business, according to Alison Treadaway, MD, Striata SA. "When organisations look to remove cost from the business, they should in fact increase the budget assigned to electronic communication and aggressively chase a greater decrease elsewhere."

Missing link between skills development, increased performance

Skills development is still a major focus in South Africa. Businesses are incentivised to implement clearly defined skills development programmes. Although businesses can see almost immediate benefits through tax and skills levy rebates and better B-BBEE scores; are these programmes positively affecting the performance of employees and the organisations they work for?

The craft of simplification

We all know the term 'less is more', but in a busy and complex world it is often forgotten. For a brand to say more and have optimal impact it needs to say less, less grey, less of the same, and more difference, more relevance. Simple doesn't mean easy though, and that's where the craft comes in. The craft of simplification.

Iconic brands tell stories

We all recognise them, we all love them and we all want them. Yet iconic brands are rare. An iconic brand is able to punch far above its weight. Most iconic brands do not spend a fortune on marketing - they attain gravity naturally as consumers tune into them. Whatever they do creates impact way beyond their magnitude. (video)
