How to Be a Great Communicator

Knowledge@Wharton: The Secret to Great Communication: Be Like Aristotle

As PR pros, we are frequently asked about how public relations is changing. We’ve often heard our colleagues answer with responses about new technologies and data driven tools. We do agree that new social media platforms, pitch tracking technologies and the abundance of data that can be used to target customers are having a major impact on our work. However, while the tools used to communicate with the media and the public may be changing, the core skills required to make an impact in PR remain the same. The ability to tell a compelling story remains essential and it’s more important than ever to be skilled in the art of persuasive communication. Take a peek at this article to learn about how storytelling skills benefit business efforts and how you can strengthen your skills as a communicator.     

Creating a Brand Voice

Contently: Should Your Brand Voice Stay the Same Across Social Channels?

When developing social media strategies for our clients, we always like to keep in mind a celebrity that is similar to the brand’s voice. Doing so helps us to visualize the brand’s tone in every post and make sure that the voice remains consistent across every platform. Whether the persona is an approachable and down-to-earth with plenty of humor like Tim Allen or trustworthy, stylish and a little bit elusive like Anna Wintour, this tactic helps us craft posts with a distinct tone. However, across every channel it is important to adapt this base tone to best resonate with the audience. This article has a few great tips for how to position your brand voice on each platform.

Consumers Think Brands Are Making Empty Promises

Agility PR: Half of all consumers skeptical about brand promises—and demand proof

According to this article, Amazon, Netflix and Royal Caribbean consistently rank among the top rated brands when it comes to upholding brand promises through consumer experience. However, consumer confidence that brands will deliver on their promises as a whole is low. 52 percent of consumers report that brands fail to live up to the promises they make. Avoiding empty promises and delivering a strong brand experience is a surefire way for brands to increase their consumer satisfaction.
