Why I know nothing about social media

Imagine yourself, as you are right now. Perhaps you're sipping coffee while scrolling through a newsfeed of articles that interest you. You have your calendar ready with your tasks for the day. You know what you're about and where you're going.

DigiChat with Andrea: Digital marketing skills, talent and training

Just less than a year ago, I closed my own digital marketing agency and went freelance. A large contributing factor behind the closure was my inability to attract and retain the required calibre of staff to help maintain the standards required in a very fast-paced and constantly changing industry.

SABC shows ANC colours in run-up to elections

For the first democratic election 20 years ago, the African National Congress ensured it would not enter the election period without the SABC - for so long a voice of the ruling party - being put into neutral hands. It understood the power of the national broadcaster as the primary source of news and information for most of the country, and its capacity to distort the national debate and influence voting. Now it appears we are entering an election again with the SABC - or at least key elements of it - captive to a ruling party.
