[Social Media] Why I Dance
But as I scrolled through a number of posts, I could not find one that made me stop and think about a new way of saying something that everyone else has said before, related to public relations, or marketing, or social media. Yesterday I was scrolling through my Feedly to see if something caught my eye enough to riff off of for today’s post. There’s plenty in there for me to read; I’m woefully behind on my blog reading (and commenting, and sharing… sigh…). So I decided to write about something else entirely. Something I love to do. love to dance.

That is why it is critical to avoid common mistakes that have proven to immediately turn off media and consumers alike. Playing it Too Safe: As social media gaffes steal headlines and damage careers, companies are very careful about what they put out, and they absolutely should be.

[Social Media] What is creativity? Really.
It struck me as such an important part of business and indeed of using social media. "We don't use machines because although they seem to help at first, they produce limitations in the long run". The words of Rosa Lladro in a recent interview in Monocle magazine. As humans we like structure and boundaries. Yet what makes brands stand out from the crowd is true creativity. True creativity is. Not looking at what you are capable of.but what you want to make and making it possible. Not line extensions but market extensions.
