Get your own damn blog – part 2

Posted on April 15, 2008. Filed under: marketing, resources, small business | Tags: , , , |

I want to tell you all about blogging and how it can help you and your business, but hey, if I can give you a link to someone who has literally written the book (82 pages, thank you very much!) on it, wouldn’t that make more sense?

Who wrote it:

Remarkablogger is Michael Martine, a long-time web designer, blogger, software trainer, internet entrepreneur, and strategist. Remarkablogger is the name of my one-man consulting company. I offer blog consulting and coaching for individuals and companies.
I help you wade through the blizzard of options and choices when it comes to planning, setting up, and managing a business blog. If you’re new to blogging or your blog has stalled or not delivered the expected results, I can help you start your blog right or take it to the next level, and help it fulfill its intended purpose.

Some excerpts:

Why You Should Have a Blog
Why should you have a blog? Because everybody else does, and you want to be cool, right?
Just kidding.
Many more people are blogging now than ever before, because there are real benefits to blogging. By this time, the benefits of having a website are undeniable. As a platform for websites, blogs magnify those benefits tremendously, delivering on them better than a non-blog website can. How? Better search engine optimization, better communications with your customers, better marketing all around, and better positioning and branding for you in the marketplace.

What are you going to offer your new readers that will impress them and convert them into RSS subscribers and long-term readers? Many other great bloggers have written plenty of excellent material on creating initial content for a blog. Yaro Starak calls it pillar articles, Chris Garrett calls it flagship content. Whatever you want to call it, it needs to be written before the blog launches.

Now, hurry up and go read the whole thing! What are you waiting for?
