Tips To Improve Collaboration for Remote Teams Working on Creative Projects

Posted by Jodie Byass on Mar 8, 2022 12:00:00 AM

A few years ago a Stanford University study found that collaboration fosters motivation and transforms "work into play". In simple terms, effective collaboration creates a dynamic environment where team members can cross-pollinate and create. It becomes a space where team members are inspired to come up with great ideas and do excellent work.

Because of this, effective and efficient creative collaboration is crucial in any creative project. And it sounds simple to implement, doesn't it? Sure, that was once was the case and teams had their collaborative processes in place. But our past two year living with COVID-19 has required teams across the world to find new ways to collaborate.

Best Practices For Marketing Teams Working With Freelancers

Posted by Jodie Byass on Jan 27, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Let?s face it, marketers now work harder than ever. This is due to a few reasons. For one, since the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are using the internet and social media than ever before. This means more people work online, shop online, and consume entertainment online. In turn, as a result of digital transformation, many businesses now also focus their marketing and selling efforts on digital channels.

Unfortunately, this also means there?s more competition between marketers to get their products in front of the right people at the right time. Simply put, marketers now have to put in more time and effort to stay relevant and reach their goals.

It?s thus easy to see why resourcing will be one of the main challenges for marketing teams going into the next year. Simply put, these teams will need the right people in the right positions to ensure success. The problem is that the demand for quality talent is expected to outstrip demand.

And that?s where freelancers come in. They give teams the ability to find the right talent when they need it. This simply means that, you?ll probably use freelancers at some stage in the future. And when you do, you?ll not only need to manage them but also your workflow and processes to ensure that you deliver high-quality, consistent results.
