santaA Look Back at PWR Content


In the spirit of the season, the PWR team has taken some time to reflect on our year. Since you’ve been such a good girl or boy, we wanted to share some of our favorite PWR resources with you: ideas, research, interviews, tactical tips and more.

Resources for Content Creators

  1. imageCracking the Digital Code: We gave you our thoughts on building better on-line relationships with your target audiences. We argued that many-to-many is the new “it” and suggested ways you can embrace the change.

  2. Communicating Across the Spectrum: With your audience ranging from those who still love paper to those who stand in line for the latest gadget, we shared a few thoughts on how to communicate with them all (repackaging helps!).

  3. Digital Eye Contact: Growing, maintaining and maximizing online relationships requires many of the same approaches, attitudes and considerations that real-life relationships benefit from. We took a look at what that means for digital content.

Resources for Enhancing Email and Other Platforms
