These are just a few questions to really think about before taking a stand on opinionated topics. The power of the consumer is strong and they’re usually never alone. When a company successfully messages their content and values towards a specific group, they create a culture.

Be effective in your message and be clear on your values. As a company you want to always stand by your core values and what you’re built upon. Be careful not alienate people and have an open-minded approach when it comes to creating messaging around sensitive topics. Ultimately it’s about sharing your company’s opinion and values in a non-offensive, non-harmful, and effective way while maintaining true to your company’s culture.
