A good blog gives you that “other” perspective. It’s a chance to blow off steam, or indulge in a private passion. But standing out from the over-crowded blogosphere is a tough trick to pull off, one the SE10 blog does time and again. Richard High, Editor of Mining World

Brand building based on honesty

Published: 16 March 15 Written by Ricardo Rosa Blog

I recently came across a study that investigated what it takes to create genuine, honest brands and businesses.

The research found that consumers want, more than anything, common-sense.

‘Click here’: the most wasted phrase on the Internet

Published: 10 March 15 Written by Holly Brace Blog

If you Google the term ‘Click here’ you’ll pull up over 2.58 billion results – but one of the most commonly used phrases is actually the biggest waste of time. Using a hyperlink in a press release, a webpage or a direct mailer and linking it to a page on your website is a great way to drive traffic.

This past fall I was given the opportunity to complete an internship at global PR agency SE10. My internship with SE10 was a lot like my time on the mats at Team Redzovic, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym in Chicago: one of the most rewarding and enriching learning experiences I have ever had.
