A consensus-based organization makes decisions by ensuring all management agrees and approves before moving forward. This could be in regards to anything from a company philosophy, event details, or the website you’re building. Think of consensus-based as a “big tent” that includes a large group of employees coming from diverse backgrounds. Or it may be that your organization is part of a larger umbrella organization. Regardless, a consensus-based organization, like these, strives for collaboration, democratic leadership, and agreement among its team members. This type of organization is focused on its mission and places responsibility on its employees and lay leaders to amplify its message. The mission is where all aspects of marketing return. Along the way, we ask, “does this reflect our mission?”
You can dramatically improve your marketing efforts by making use of Facebook advertising. Setting up Facebook ads can feel overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be. With the help of Facebook advertising software and Facebook’s Power Editor, you can set up ads and watch how they perform. Our recommendation is to set up one ad at first, for a mere $5 a day, and watch it for a month to see how it does. When set up properly, we find that our clients’ audience reach dramatically grows during this short timeframe. Once you get comfortable setting up and watching ads, you can drive even more growth by automating the process, narrowing down your audience and creating fresh designs to attract your ideal website visitor. The tips below can get you started, but if any of this seems daunting or you just don’t know where to begin, we are here to help! Give us a call and we’ll get you started on the right track.
Are you a manager? Are you in charge of a delegating tasks or a subset of an organization? To be a good manager, leadership skills are a must. You must hone specific characteristics, qualities and traits in order to inspire and empower others, especially people on your team and in your community. One’s image does not make a leader. Leadership is not an image, it’s a quality. Specific qualities are paramount for any leader. For example, a person can be a manager, but not necessarily a leader. However, to be an effective manager, your leadership skills need to shine. Inner strength and caring about one’s team and their efforts encourages positivity and motivation for their employees.
