Approaches to Corporate Social Media Posts

Thank-You-QuotesIt’s not unusual for company employees to feel uneasy about posting on social media, mainly because of questions about what is appropriate to write about, and how it should be presented. All these doubts are understandable, so here are some tips about approaching corporate social media communications.

  1. Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter are quite different, so one size does not fit all.
  2. Keep your posts short and concise, while keeping a friendly tone. You might imagine you’re talking to your best friend for a Facebook post, or a valued colleague for Linkedin, for example.
  3. Always illustrate your point with a photo, it ramps up the interest in what you have to say.
  4. Remember that the whole point is to engage other people in a conversation and to direct people to your company website or take some other action to get involved.
  5. Communication is not one-way, so ask for others’ opinions.
  6. Let your personality shine through, nobody likes an anonymous feeling when they read someone’s post.
  7. Yes, it matters if there are spelling mistakes, but there’s always spell check, so don’t be in too much of a rush to post, take a moment to check for any errors.
  8. You can recruit and persuade through social media, so keep an open channel of communication.
  9. Say ‘Thank You’ often.

Most of all, build your confidence by asking for peoples’ feedback on your posts, you’d be surprised at how many people will give you useful and honest feedback.

Jazz Arts & Communications Releases Sarah Fenwick Video Clip

Gifted Jazz singer Sarah Fenwick and brilliant guitarist Marinos Neophytou have released a stunning music video for the classic Jazz tune ‘Black Orpheus’ (A Day in the Life of a Fool), composed by Brazilian guitarist Luiz Bonfa.

The video is produced by Jazz Arts & Communications – www.jazzartsclub.com – and beautifully directed by Savvas Hadjigeorgiou.

The house that time forgot – Nicosia’s rich history showcased.

‘Black Orpheus’ is one of the songs from the duet’s new, self-produced CD ‘Jazz Way’, available online at this link: http://jazzartsclub.com/products-page/cds/197-2/

The clip was filmed in the house that time forgot – Nicosia’s ‘Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios Museum’, the former home of the Dragoman, who was the official interpreter for the Ottoman Sultan in 1779.

The song is based on the myth of the God of Music, Orpheus, who goes to the depths of Hades to bring his wife Eurydice back to life. The myth is about a tragic yearning for lost love, and the Jazz duet’s performance perfectly captures this feeling in the classic tradition of a torch song, combined with improvised melodies.

In the video clip, Director Savvas Hadjigeorgiou plays with contrasting realities that cross over from the past to the future, from life to death, from earth to space, from light to dark.

Beautifully shot, each frame is a work of art, as ‘Eurydice’ (Sarah) wanders through the Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios Museum, revisiting her past life, searching and waiting for her lost love.

The video can be watched, downloaded and shared at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NY4QElykhI&feature=youtu.be

Capturing the warm sound of live Jazz is not easy in this age of technology and special sound effects, but Sarah Fenwick and Marinos Neophytou have succeeded by recording their CD ‘Jazz Way’ live, and preserving the dynamic energy that is so exciting about this beautiful music.

‘Jazz Way’ was recorded in Cyprus, and the cover art features a photograph of old Nicosia within the walls. The Cypriot musicians based their fantastic new work on their series of Jazz concerts titled ‘Incurable Romantics’ in 2012. The concerts were a great success, and received rave reviews from other respected musicians, like the amazing classical pianist Yiannis Georgiou.

“It was like being transported to a Jazz Club performance of a sort that I didn’t think existed in Cyprus. Sarah is a committed and polished Jazz singer. She has a beautiful, crystal, bell-like, high frequency voice. And she is a complete artist in that she clearly lives and breathes her singing,” he said.

Sarah gives a beautifully polished performance and is accompanied with much conviction and also heartfelt commitment on the guitar by Marinos Neophytou, he adds.

One particular favourite is ‘My Funny Valentine’, which is a unique improvisation on the 1937 classic song written by Rodgers & Hart. Music lovers will enjoy the most popular Jazz songs written by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and other great composers.

Just like love, these songs pass the test of time and remind us of the values of romance, dreams and passion.
