“As far as being a thought leader, if you have a unique point of view and something to say, it’s never too early to start putting that out there.” – Holly Beilin
This week, the Georgia State chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurship Organization (CEO) invited Holly Beilin, Editor in Chief of Hypepotamus to talk about her experience as a journalist in Atlanta’s startup community. Hypepotamus is a popular online publication that reports on the startup culture of the Southeast. Beilin talks to students about the ways that tech is simultaneously changing the world of business as well as journalism.
Startup companies heavily rely on written content and advertisements to promote their businesses. Blogs, podcasts, and social media have been useful tools to supplement a company’s product or service. Beilin gives the advice to students who are interested in business writing to keep content short, readable and not to use too much technical wording. Also, to pick up basic video content creating and podcasting skills in order to be a well-rounded business content creator.
