Well for the foreseeable, I’m going to try and uncover some of these questions as I start to give you one piece of software, tool or technique that can help you as a Marketer.

But first, lets meet Bethany Joy, Brand Voice Crafter & Wordsmith Extraordinaire and with a title like that I can tell your ear have already pricked up! Bethany isn’t’ an inventor, she isn’t a complex problem solver, but what Bethany is amazing at it using the words on a page to grab attention, make sense, engage and be meaningful and with industries such as biochemistry, the environment, human rights, education, career coaching and ethical clothing you know Bethany will deliver.
Takeaways- Bethany shared with us her brand voice tips, which included: - What and how you are saying things must match what you want your customers to think about you - Keep it consistent and accurate - Never be fake, always be true to yourself - Remember it is about telling people the most important things
- All your content must be quality, helpful or entertaining. Always be thinking about your contents purpose, utilising this to achieve what it needs to achieve
- A single word can make a huge difference. As Bethany pointed out, just think about the variations in the word male and the connotations this has! From Male to Dude!!!! Very different indeed.
