Monthly Grammar Tips: January 2017

Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!

This month we dove into the two (or more) meanings of puns and double entendres, forecast common misuses of whether, hashed out the difficulties of maintaining grammar in hashtags, and made a ruling on the two spellings of judgement/judgment.

Seven reminders when adding video to your content strategy

Opus recently released an e-book detailing the reasons you need a content marketing strategy for your event. Developing your own content marketing strategy is good—but it’s just a start! Factoring video into your content plan is a step in the right direction: the Content Marketing Institute’s 2017 B2B Content Marketing Report ranked it as the sixth-most commonly used tactic by B2B marketers. The big question remains: how do I do it?

Luckily, Event Marketer recently published a helpful guide for designing B2B event content strategy—here are their thoughts on folding video into the mix:

Opus celebrates Team Connect 2017!

At every year’s conclusion, Opus Agency holds its annual Team Connect event, a high-energy, all-staff offsite where we review the prior year’s results, celebrate our shared successes, acknowledge everyone’s contributions (aided by some next-level swag), and look ahead to the coming year. We break at the end of the day for final prepping and primping, then reconvene in the evening for our annual holiday party. (This year’s theme: Show Black with a Pop of Color!)

Monthly Grammar Tips: December 2016

Opus is a full-service marketing agency. As such, we consider each and every member of the Opus team to have a direct hand in marketing. Every point of contact with customers, prospects, and partners presents an opportunity to further our brand. We take pride in the quantity and quality of our communication—no matter the medium—which makes it even more important for our writing to be strong and free of errors. To that end, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes” with the aim of raising the bar of the written word across the entire agency. Our notes should provide utility to everyone, whether you’re a fledgling scribbler or a confirmed word nerd. 

This month we differentiate traveling and travelling, count the ways to pluralize proper nouns, reflect on the importance of me, myself, and I, and give readers the gist on whilst, amidst, and amongst.
