We’ve all heard the expression, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” Whether it’s in person, on paper, via email, or even through your mailbox, it’s very important to come across in a positive light. From what I’ve seen at Modify, a medium of the marketing mix that really ties the elements of our brand together is our unique and creative packaging. The distinctive appearance, special features, and visually impactful texts illustrated on all of our boxes. In short, it looks like a work of art. If you ever received one of our hand-packed packages, you’ll know exactly what I am talking about. Packaging is often overlooked since it is what’s on the inside that counts [editor’s note: especially when it’s our new MLS Watches … they’re sweet] but what’s on the outside can be just as important.
Notice the orange text, it says “a face/strap for your personal collection” depending on the item.
Communication is an important facet of life, it could be your opportunity to shine or impede your success in the workplace. Effective verbal and written communication skills are both fundamental and require practice similar to any other skill. With that being said, I learned the rules for proper business e-mail etiquette this week. That would include being coherent, having a structure, and choosing the right vernacular to address your audience. Email may be a more preferable form of communication in today’s workplace because of its convenience, so convenient that we have to remember to maintain a professional tone.
What’s with all these boxes you may ask? It’s all part of my cleaning and organizing duties here. According to Aaron, it’s called a “small project” but I don’t mind. Who doesn’t want a nice looking office? It’s much easier to focus when you’re surrounded by a neat and tidy work environment. Thankfully, it’s not a hassle because Modify has an excellent work culture and environment. Seriously, it’s the happiest and most comfortable work environment I’ve ever experienced.
