Marketing Benefits of Blogs

05/27/2005

Blogger extraordinaire, Paul Chaney, at Radiant Marketing Group, lists 10 benefits of business/marketing blogging.

1. Search Engine Marketing
2. Direct Communication
3. Brand Building
4. Competitive Differentiation
5. Relational Marketing
6. Exploit the Niches
7. Media & Public Relations
8. Reputation Management
9. Position You as Expert
10. Intranet & Project Management

And here's #11 - An opportunity to profile your work. Divo Alex Geana's new blog is a nice demonstration of how a writer can use blogs to his (or her) advantage. Hope you find that publisher soon Alex!

Sidebar: How can you make your blog work harder for you?
-Will you add a podcast about interesting happenings in your industry?
-Will you include more about trends in  your market?
-Will you find a way to open the window a little wider to let people see how your brand is different from others in your space? 
-Or will you take your cue from Divo Alex and show more of your work like DigitalGrit and Debbie Weil are doing by offering downloads of white papers ?

I agree we must all keep improving, changing, adding value to our blogs.

I got so fed up with the lousy design of Vaspers the Grate, that I dumped it into a new and vastly better template, added several new widgets (BlogMap, Bloglet subscription form, 49 Media update images, etc.), and am working harder on the art images that accompany each post.
