BLND Toolbox: If you don’t know, Google it

With the internet, the world of information is always at your fingertips. At our boutique public relations agency, BLND PR, we aren’t ashamed to admit that Google is our best friend when it comes to keeping up with the latest trends and strategies in our industry. Here’s why being okay with Googling it is essential to growing your brand.

It makes you self-sufficient.

At a fast-paced agency, you need to be a self-starter and oftentimes figure it out for yourself. There isn’t always time for hands-on help, and the internet offers thousands of tutorials, video walkthroughs, and how-tos for an endless variety of topics, it’s basically like having someone personally teaching and training you.

It’s like brainstorming – with the entire world.

Bouncing ideas around is an important business growth exercise, but not always feasible when the team is tied up in their own tasks. Fortunately, there are so many online forums that exist where people have already been brainstorming for hours and have reached results. The best part is, you get to skip through the fluff and get to the meat of the conversation to get the info you need.

You get information fast.

Google is fast. With a single push of a button, all the information in the world is on your screen. Don’t waste time searching through books or word of mouth when you can quickly find the answer online.

You’ll keep on learning.

The internet has so much to offer, and so many people overlook Google as a viable source of information. Learning doesn’t end once you’re out of school; let the web be your post-graduation resource for relevant websites, blogs, videos and  answers to questions you didn’t even know you had.

So next time you don’t know something, don’t panic, just Google it.
