I first wrote this article for CMSWire but wanted to share it here as well.  I’m sure you have noticed that many of the enterprise collaboration vendors out there are starting to look very similar; not just in appearance but also in functionality. In fact, if you were to visit the exhibit hall at a collaboration conference and cover up the logos of the vendors, it would be pretty hard to differentiate who is who.

According to Womenshealth.gov , more than 17 million women in the U.S. are uninsured. That’s roughly 20 percent of women. These women are more likely to develop serious health problems, due to the fact that they wait too long before seeking treatment and are not always able to afford the price of necessary prescription medications.

We want to connect, we want to share, and we want to engage. But sometimes we get stuck in a rut marketing ourselves to our audiences.
