Yeah, we’ve been busy… Busy building our team, busy building our business and as you can see, even busy building this blog.
Josh and I have known each other for a few years, we’ve worked together on multiple projects and what can I say — those who know Josh through his consulting work with Hyku know he’s the type of pro who has earned the admiration and respect of many people in our industry.
To say I’m fired up to have him on our team is, well, an understatement.
I think one of the things Josh and I have learned working together is that “conversation” and “community” are words that easily roll off the tongues of marketers these days, but too often it’s without knowledge or regard for the technology that’s required to carry these things from conference room concepts to real-world experiences.
This is where Josh excels. The guy’s a master translator between marketers and web developers, between ideas and experiences, and ultimately, between companies and customers.
Josh is the newest addition to our growing team of social media strategists here at Voce. Earlier this spring Andrea Weckerle, a DC-area blogger and author of New Millennium PR, joined our gang, as did Scott Sigler, author, podcaster and social media provocateur. And yeah, yours truly continues to act as this team’s lead wonk.
I feel pretty confident saying we have a concentration of smarts, skills and experience here that can take on any social media assignment — and, well, that’s exactly what we’re doing.
We continue our long-standing partnership with Yahoo!, working on a variety of social media and influencer marketing programs, likewise with Sony PlayStation. We also continue to consult clients like Network Appliance, Plantronics, Unisys, TMZ.com, and many others on a mix of social media assignments.
While we’re adding people to the team and new brands to the roster, our charter remains the same: to cut through all the hype and hyperbole of new media and really focus on how clients can practically use new technologies and new strategies in their communication programs.
Much, much more is in the works; much more will come.
Things are busy. Back to work.
