I still remember the day that I joined Emma and Dom as a freelance copywriter and PR specialist. They were at the start of their Yellow Door Collective journey and I had just moved from Cape Town to the Garden Route with my family, expecting my second child.
Our team behind the yellow door has always had a complicated relationship with social media. We use it as one of our main tools in content marketing, however, we recognise how all-consuming it can be in our lives. On one hand, we use it to inspire creativity, humour and engagement with our brand and our clients’ brands, and on the other, we force ourselves to switch off so that we can be present in our personal lives and connect to the people around us. For us it’s all about balance, and focusing on quality content.
Much time in business is often spent working on securing new customers. We believe that spending time building relationships with our existing clients is key to a strong and sustainable business. From the beginning, even before a client signs on the dotted line you can start laying a foundation for a great relationship.
Growing up in the digital age, I, like almost anyone else my age, can’t even begin to imagine life without my cell phone. They have changed the way that we think about communication and offer an abundance of information at our fingertips. We carry them around with us wherever we go, and although this may not be very good in terms of genuine human connection (not going to get started on that), it poses as a great opportunity for business.
