    Adopting Social Software for Workforce Collaboration and Communication

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, April 8, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the predictive power HR can bring, and this week we're going to talk about the adoption of social software for workforce collaboration and communication.


    Social software today enables workforce collaboration and communication. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates productivity improves by 20-25% in organizations with connected employees, and the potential for revenue amounts to $1.3 trillion per year.


    But the adoption of internal social media will require a strategic change management initiative to move away from email that still dominates the enterprise today.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about the adoption of social software for workforce collaboration and communication with this week’s guest: Shel Holtz, Principal of Holtz Communication + Technology and a prolific blogger and co-host of the first and longest-running communications podcast, For Immediate Release. 


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Jobvite, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. And we're big CandE supporters!

    in Entertainment

    World building, character development, elements of the novel, and the impact of writing in a bubble. 


    Writing a novel is a balancing act and how well you balance your plot, your characters, and your world building determine the quality of your novel. The ability to do this takes practice.

    The Prosecutor's Method of Marketing Funnel Construction

    in Business

    How do I know what things to say and in what order to say them in my marketing funnel?

    It's a question I'm asked at least once a week.


    And, while I can't give you specifics, since each niche, market, product, service, etc., is different, I can tell you a simple way to think about the construction of your marketing funnel message.


    As a fan of real crime stories and high-profile court cases, I've always enjoyed watching a good prosecutor in action.
     


     


    Seeing how, from the beginning, they methodically lay-out a cogent and persuasive argument of guilt is just a beautiful thing. One block at a time, in logical order, with proof upon proof, building an undeniable case against the defendant. In the end leaving the jury with no other plausible position to take other than one of guilty.
     


     


    If we boil down the essence of an effective message within a marketing funnel we'll find something very similar: an undeniable logical and emotional argument established by a string of assertions and claims each backed by a preponderance of proof.



    In other words, laying out the message of your marketing funnel is very similar to what a prosecutor does when laying out the message of their case.
