Branding a Nickel Producer: The Blackstone Way.

Samso Special Series Part 1/4

Coffee with Samso Episode 103 with Tessa Kutscher, Corporate Affairs Advisor, Blackstone Minerals Ltd (ASX:BSX) is the first of a 4-part series where we dive deeper into the Blackstone Minerals organisation.

I have noticed that Blackstone Minerals Limited (ASX:BSX) is one of the most visible mining companies on social media platforms. This is a well organised strategy which is clearly working very well.

Blackstone Minerals Ltd has been a strong supporter of Samso since we started. That is why I have been very keen to speak to Tessa Kutscher for a while now. It has been a challenge getting her to have a coffee break due to her heavy schedule, but I have finally managed to corner her for this episode of Coffee with Samso.

We talk about how in the mineral resource sector there is a belief that there is no need to brand. This is a curious belief as every sector in the commercial world strive on branding and keeping the interaction with consumers. Tessa and I discuss the changing market space and the use of different social media platforms.

Tune in to find out how Tessa Kutscher and the Blackstone team keep the company very visible in the internet world.
