A Series of Social Lies: Part Two

by cjadmin | February 25th, 2014

The Lie: Anyone can manage your social media.

It’s fairly common to see business executives hand their social media presence over to the millennial in the office, typically an intern or young office assistant. While these individuals are often great at connecting with each other on social media, they might not be the best option for connecting your brand, and I’ll tell you why:

Social media has the power to connect directly with customers, to engage users in conversation about your product or service, and to present your brand to an audience of millions. That’s a big responsibility. Is your social media manager qualified to do these things effectively?

As a Brand Manager, Arnie Stinks!

by Arnie Malham | September 8th, 2007


At last year’s conference, the agency announced a fundamental change. No longer would I (Arnie) serve as the agency’s sole brand manager. Instead, we developed a program that would tap into the experience of the agency’s most veteran contributors and challenged them to take on this key responsibility. Suzanne, Angel, Greg, Tim, Laura, Bill, and Alan have all leaped at the opportunity to serve both the client and the agency in this very challenging role. All have consistently and diligently conducted conference calls, followed-up on projects, tracked call numbers, and impressively increased the frequency and quality of communications between our clients and the agency.
