Interviewee Name: Alison Ver Halen
Company: AV Writing Services, LLC
Alison Ver Halen’s favourite quote: Easy reading is damn hard writing.
Thank you so much for joining us today! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What is your backstory?
Alison Ver Halen : I majored in English and Psychology without realizing I was getting the perfect degree for content marketing. It wasn’t until a few years after I graduated, when a family friend asked me to write blog posts for his law firm, that I realized I could make a living doing what I love.
What’s the most significant shift you’ve observed in the marketing and branding landscape in the last year, and how should businesses adapt to it?
Alison Ver Halen : I know everyone is talking about AI these days, and with good reason. It’s changing the way many of us create content and conduct research, but it is also resulting in a flood of mediocre content. A lot of people think they can use AI to create content for them without putting any thought into the writing prompts they give their AI software, much less editing it before it gets published. This is creating an incredible opportunity for brands to position themselves as thought leaders in their industry by creating content that says things no one else is saying. It’ll be much easier to stand out from the crowd when the crowd all sounds the same.
In the era of data-driven marketing, how do you balance the need for data and analytics with the creative aspects of marketing and branding?
Alison Ver Halen : I love using data to inspire my creativity. It’s hard to suffer from writer’s block when you have so much information to draw from.
