One of the most common questions most individuals get asked once of “working age” is: What do you do for a living? My response, “I work for a Rochester-based public relations firm.” Sometimes I get a blank stare because public relations (PR) can relate to so many avenues or be confused with marketing and/or advertising – but that’s for a different blog post.
Beyond my need for news, working for EAFocus and our wonderful clients provides the opportunity to work on projects tied to fascinating (well, in my book at least!) issues. Since the first of the year we have had the opportunity to be involved with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's (MEDC) Community Ventures program through one of our clients, gained insight into the ways plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are expected to expand and the roles cities will play in the adoption of their infrastructure thanks to the efforts of another EAFocus client and developed a greater understanding of the impact on patent trolls in business and even the public sector, courtesy of another client. And this is just the tip of the iceberg!
In addition to my news addiction, I have always enjoyed meeting people. EAFocus and our clients have provided numerous opportunities to attend networking and similar type events. From meeting local leaders and the Governor of Michigan to other young professionals and business leaders, let me just say, I love my job and I never lack for being surrounded by interesting people!
Does your organization need to communicate important issues to your clients or constituents? EAFocus can help.

EAFocus, Inc. Hosts Press Conference Announcing Collaborative Effort to ‘Pick Up the Pace’ in Flint (Literally!)
Attendants also heard from Phil Hagerman, CEO of Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy, who addressed why his organization got involved with the Crim saying, “Our goal is to pick up the pace of the energy and momentum of this community.” The last speaker of the press conference was Linda Meyer, a woman who has overcome many obstacles in her life and completed her first Crim 5k last year with financial support from the Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy Crim Mile Marker Challenge and training help from the Crim. “I’ve started many things in my life but never finished them… this was something I finally finished,” said Meyer.
Just as quickly as the guests and media arrived they left and another successful press conference was on the books for the EAFocus team! Read more about the Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy Crim Mile Marker Challenge here.

I recently saw a picture of a tattoo that read “Live You’re Life.” It got me thinking about how careless we have become in our writing and making sure we are using correct spelling and proper grammar. Unfortunately for this individual, their lack of proofreading is permanently marked on their side. For the rest of us, here are four items to check for in your writing.

So ask yourself, “What age group is my brand looking to communicate with? What type of content will we be able to share on a regular basis? Will we be sharing photos and videos, asking questions and sharing other industry related information?” If you answered yes, then Facebook could be a social media site for your brand to build a presence.
LinkedIn is a professional networking site. Commonly explained as the “Facebook for the business community” the site allows you to post a profile explaining your work history, education, volunteerism, etc. along with connecting with fellow colleagues, other professionals in the same or similar industry and with companies.
