We’ve talked a lot about the importance of going beyond simply being present on social media and instead actively engaging with audience members across social platforms. To do this takes time, a strong social media and content marketing strategic plan, and a willingness to commit fully to the idea that social media is a crucial part of your customer acquisition, retention, and brand building strategies.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently released a special report on the state of climate change. The findings were less than pleasant, with the report underscoring that "we only have the slimmest of opportunities remaining to avoid unthinkable damage to the climate system that supports life as we know it."

AESP’s national conference is around the corner. At KSV, we love seeing people come together to talk, share and learn about sustainable energy.
For AESP in the past, we’ve focused on customer engagement. We’ve spoken about targeting large C&I customers with native advertising, co-presenting with our client, Erin Motta from National Grid.
Erin is a senior marketing analyst in the energy product marketing area of National Grid.
This week, we’re sharing an interview we had with Erin after an AESP gathering that covered some of the questions remaining after the session.
As we enter into the new year, we’ve taken time to reflect on some of the most important lessons we’ve learned about driving sustainable energy. And we wanted to share a few with you.
What do fried chicken, Santa Claus, and sustainable energy all have in common?
The obvious answer would be nothing. But here’s our take: They each fill a void.
In 1970, the manager of Japan’s first KFC woke in the middle of the night with a business idea. Takeshi Okawara wanted to sell a “party barrel” of fried chicken on Christmas.
Kevin Willard, one of our creative directors, wanted KSV’s holiday card to make it onto Adweek’s list of most creative agency farewells of the year.
So, he wrote a letter to the “North Pole.”
It’s time for another edition of policy, not politics.
Last week we mentioned that Donald Trump signed the NDAA that said, “Climate change is a direct threat to the national security of the United States.”
We talked about how this was a small win for climate change activists because of the fact that the administration didn’t push back on this language being in the act.
Well, another week, another development.
KSV is a certified B Corp.
Enter buzzwords: mission-driven, values-led.
We see these words on the ‘about’ pages of businesses in all sectors across the globe.
But B Corp could actually be the next major movement for business—Forbes, Inc., Fortune, and Huffpost have all written about it as a movement to watch.
