Privacy, security, and compliance are prioritized in Microsoft Teams

Now more than ever, people need to know their virtual conversations are private and secure. Microsoft is committed to giving users transparency over the collection, use, and distribution of their data. No tracking for participant attention or multitasking during Teams meetings. No unfettered government access to data, and no ads linked to data. Microsoft even offers transparency reports on the Transparency Hub, detailing how it responded to third-party requests for data.

“We are committed to providing products, information, and controls that you let choose how your data is collected and used,” stated President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith. Knowing that your organization can experience enterprise-grade communication and collaboration while at the same time be protected, secure, and compliant—that allows you do your work with confidence.

4 Reasons Why Social Proof Is Essential to Building Your Brand

Social proof is the idea that people will follow the actions of others—that since so many other people behave in a certain way, it must be the correct behavior. In digital marketing, social proof is highly influenced by comments and reviews on your social platforms. Studies have shown that people are not only more likely to share their experiences about your product or service online, but they are also more likely to be influenced by what other people say and write about you. So yes, it’s vital that customers are sharing positive reviews of doing business with you—customer service has never been more important than in the digital age.

Maleeka T. Hollaway, in her article “4 Reasons Why Social Proof is Essential to Building Your Brand,” states that your social proof demonstrates the degree in which you’ve helped your clients gain results. “When you can publicly share with your audience how your work or product has created transformations for those who do business with you, naturally, people are inclined to pay attention. Results speak for you whether you are present or not,” writes Hollaway. Customers’ excitement is often contagious, and you suddenly access the radar of people who might not have even known about your brand, according to Holloway. To read more in depth about social proof and the reasons it’s essential to your business, read her entire article. Social proof has never been more important.

NSW: Affording a device in every hand


Business.com named Microsoft Teams the best video conferencing service in 2020: “What truly makes this service appealing is its integration with other Microsoft Office applications. If you already use Word, Excel and Outlook, integrating Teams into your workflow is a simple process. Considering everything you get access to, this is one of the most affordable video conferencing services we found in our research.” Businesses don’t need a chat feature or other stand-alone services—they need to be able to perform their tasks while having access to their files—they need integration. This is what Teams provides, and at an affordable price.

View this video and see how integration and affordability enabled the education department in New South Wales to put a device in every pair of hands.

Spotlight on ‘Teams as a Platform’ at Virtual Microsoft Build 2020

At Microsoft’s annual Build developer conference, there were several updates announced for Microsoft Teams. According to veteran participant and Forbes contributor Patrick Moorhead, the integration of Teams with Microsoft Power Platform “was the biggest story out of the conference this year, as it turns Teams into essentially a full-blown platform. With the lack of developers globally, I think this combination could enable some very powerful capabilities.”

Power BI is also getting further integrated into Teams, notes Moorhead. Users will be able to import and share reports, or merely charts from reports, from the new ‘Share to Teams’ button in the Power BI portal. “Additionally, when a chart is shared to a Teams conversation it will now include a rich thumbnail preview, and an adaptive card that Microsoft says will enable users to take action on said chart,” writes Moorhead.

There’s lots more to take note of for the improvements around Microsoft Teams and its far-reaching capabilities. Read Moorhead’s entire article, “Spotlight on ‘Teams as a Platform’ at Virtual Microsoft Build 2020” for an overview of these developments.

Case studies are effective marketing tools when done correctly.

It’s a balance. This article offers 12 key elements—offered by 12 members of Forbes Agency Council—to keep in mind when creating cases studies. For example, Emily Porter’s tip is #9 Let the Images Do the Work. Aside from ensuring a case study is focused on the solution to the problem, Porter writes that “nothing brings it to life more than imagery. In lieu of a long-form case study, consider a photo essay with solid captions narrating the case study” in order to keep the audiences truly engaged while illustrating your product’s value.
