INTERVIEW WITH ALEXIS FERMANIS, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS, SIOR
How does SIOR use content to keep their members informed?

What types of content is most important to your members?
- Thought leadership articles
- Business Best Practices
- Case studies
- Market Updates
- Sales and Marketing Tips
- Legal advice
- Advocacy updates
How do you share your content?
Can you tell us about your new magazine?
Alexis: SIOR Report is a valuable asset to our members and the CRE industry at large. The magazine received a new look and feel, with a stronger emphasis on generating thought provoking and educational content. The revamped name and look was designed to appeal to a larger external audience and further demonstrate the best-in-class organization and membership.
How do you assist your members with their own content strategies?
Alexis: At SIOR we strive to assist our members in conducting business and demonstrating their expertise – but it’s easy – they are thought leaders in their field, and market themselves every day, we just help increase their ability to do so! We help by providing a community platform for them to network and do business, and we offer marketing templates, power point presentations, press releases, and advertisements that members can use for their own marketing purposes.
