In recent months, I have continuously referred to one of my favorite blogs, The Fight Against Destructive Spin, a.k.a. “Spin Sucks,” for inspiration, as well as help in getting our name out there.
So, in return, I thought it only fair if I could tell you a bit more about them. The blog, written by Gini Dietrich, the founder and CEO of Arment Dietrich, Inc., offers advice on marketing, social media, sales, and human resources.
In the blog, Dietrich and her business partners, as well as a number of guest bloggers, discuss methods of boosting sales, training programs, innovative ways to use technology, and great sources of online financial information.
While I, and the organization I represent with this blog, are not officially clients of Arment Dietrich, Inc., we have shared information and opinions with one another on our respective blogs.
I admit to being somewhat of a greenhorn in the marketing arena still, and much of what I’ve used in recent months has been trial-and-error. Nonetheless, I always make an effort to give credit where it’s due.
Another great idea that Gini Dietrich has inspired is the concept of using abstract metaphors to represent an overall idea in the blog. So, more than ever, I’m incorporating knowledge from college courses, previous jobs, books I’ve read, and conversations that have taken place recently.
As I’m fond of saying, Georgia Community Support and Solutions is not a marketing firm by any stretch of the imagination, but as with any company, small or large, marketing is a necessary part of what we do. So, if I can somehow incorporate words of advice from the experts out there, that’s part of my job.
So thank you, Gini, for your inspiration. If I can somehow return the favor, please let me know.
