I'm always trying to integrate these disparate parts of my work life--writing, editing, publishing, packaging, tech design, and so forth. As part of my publishing services business (reVisions Plus, Inc.), I am introducing a year-long series of free articles about how to improve small business communications (written, spoken, and electronic). It occurred to me when I published the list on my business blog that the software I'll be using to create the various communications vehicles (communications plan, brochures, cards, web pages, etc.) will be Microsoft products (Office Pro, including Publisher and Front Page). So if you find yourself in a position of creating communications-related materials with Office products and you have questions about how to do something specific or how to get around a particular problem, please feel free to email me your questions related to the following monthly themes and I'll do my best to get them researched and answered in the articles. Then I'll cross post to both blogs so the articles are available in both places. That's the plan, anyway! :) Here's the list for the 2005 articles:
January: Create a 2005 Communications Plan
February: Improve Staff Communications
March: Know Your Audience
April: Find Your Business Story
May: Communicating through Design
June: Brochure and Business Card Basics
July: What Do You Need on the Web?
August: E-mail Newsletters
September: The Dos and Don’ts of Catalogs
October: Create a Product Promotion Campaign
November: Time for a New Look? Upgrading Your Publications
December: Looking Back: How Well Did Your Plan Work?
Send your article-related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And here's to a safe, happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year! :) k
