Blogs are the ultimate sampling technique – a small writing sample of what you have to offer the world. It’s why blogs are recommended for job seekers as a portfolio sample and why blogs are almost a perfect marketing technique.
‘Tis the season to set goals for a new year, and if you’re like many a blogger, one of your goals is to attract more eyeballs to your content (which is, of course, king). So you need a marketing plan. It can be simple or complex, depending on how deep you want to go with it; but in any event, it’s a good idea to put something down in writing to follow through on. Prior to making that plan you’ll want to read up on different options to gain a better idea of what best serves your purposes and fits your schedule. Because some strategies and tactics take more time to manage than others.
Notes from a panel discussion on social media. Lisa Hartmann, Social media Specialist for Duke Energy was on the panel along with Corey Creed and Brandon Uttley.

You probably rely heavily on the Internet to do business related research. Did you know that all searches are not created equal? You can search the Internet to maximize results and minimize noise by using targeted search engines and with little effort you can get results that are on point for specific goals. I promise, this will not be complicated. I love simplicity.
