Introducing our newest team member – Nathan Pfeifer

Delightful employee with bridge in background

After 8+ years in the world of online advertising, working at both Microsoft and AOL (Oath), I would like to introduce myself as the newest member of the Delightful Communications team.

As a Digital Marketing Specialist, I employ several skills I have gained over the years: Establishing relationships, operationalizing workflow, and providing laser-focus to customer needs. I believe in treating the customer with respect, going above and beyond and ALWAYS looking to surprise and delight.

Delightful Wins Another Marketing Award for IoT in Action with Microsoft Event Campaign

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, which is why we thought THREE times about submitting another campaign to the Content Marketing Institute Awards after our Majestic in Space win last year. Are we good enough for another award, we thought? Have we really done anything to match 3D printing the internet on the International Space Station, we pondered?

After much cogitation, we submitted an entry anyway.

So, imagine our utter joy when we were notified late last week that the work we have been doing with Microsoft on the IoT in Action event series has been so well regarded that we’ve won an industry gong from the CMI for the Best Integrated Corporate Event (in-person)/Digital Content Strategy

Sharing Our Delightful Guiding Principles – Values for Life and Work

While we have many combined years of industry experience, Delightful Communications itself is a newer company. Founded in 2012, I started the company to help businesses capitalize on continually emerging trends in marketing and PR like social media, influencer marketing, employee advocacy, content marketing and personal branding.

Delightful Communications Principles
Understanding that while our primary medium of communication may be digital, our focus on business has always made clear that true success depends not just on digital pixels, but also on people.

Delightful and Majestic Win Best Use of Technology Content Marketing Award for #MajesticInSpace Campaign

We are beside ourselves with delight to announce that we’ve won our first ever industry award from the Content Marketing Institute for the Best Use of Technology as Part of a Content Marketing Program for the role we played in the creation and execution of the Majestic in Space Campaign.

The prestigious Content Marketing Awards received over 1000 entries and in our final category, we were up against the likes of such mighty brands as Salesforce and FedEx!

Our quest, in partnership with our fine clients at Majestic.com and the crew at Made In Space, to 3D print a data visualization of “The Internet” on the International Space Station had been about 2 years in the making (astronauts move pretty slowly you see!) and so this accolade really is the icing on the space cake of what has been a thrilling year for us.

Welcome Joanna Mendoza to the Delightful Team!

In June, Delightful Communications welcomed me as the newest addition to the team!

I am taking on the role of Digital Marketing & PR Assistant and I am thrilled to work with this wonderful team.

A graduate fresh from Seattle University, I majored in Marketing and minored in Entrepreneurship.

One of the greatest learnings from my time at the Albers School of Business was to stay value-driven and committed to advancing the common good. That’s why, when I saw this role advertised, Delightful Communications’ mission to build brilliant brands through people really resonated with me.

In past experiences, I have gleaned a lot of insight into the importance of creating a positive and strong impression with others. In my education, I acquired values and training which supports this. In my past roles, I have learned about the importance of team work, competition, sustainability, and delighting customers.

Introduction to Personal Branding Book Now in Paperback

With the Introduction to Personal Branding Kindle eBook out for just over a year racking up five-star reviews on Amazon, we decided (inspired by our friend Karl Sakas’ pocket guide for agency leaders) to work with the fine people at CreateSpace and publish a paperback version of the book.

Personal Brand Guide Book

We’re very lucky to have our friend Jason Miller, who heads up Global Content Marketing for LinkedIn, write a few kind words about the book.

This is what he said:

“In today’s incredibly competitive landscape you need to stand out; you need to differentiate yourself from the masses, and personal branding is the answer. But what exactly is a personal brand and where does one even begin to proactively manage how the world sees them?

Enter the modern playbook for taking control of your personal brand, based on real world experience, not some philosophical approach. I wish that I had Mel Carson’s guide when I had to re-invent myself several years ago as it would have saved me from a tremendous amount of trial and error.”
