5 Reasons Why I Chose Blogging As My Main Marketing Strategy
Blogging is the New Internet Marketing Tool
Blogging is a concept that started in late 90s. It used to be a way to comment an existing webpage, an opportunity for visitors and readers to react or voice out one’s opinion on the said page. What started as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun. As it continues to move forward, online advertising has tapped into the blog’s potential. Here are 5 reasons why you should use blogging as an Internet marketing tool.
1.Blogging is simple:
The easiest way to get your voice and content on the net is through blogging. No skills are necessary… an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse. I started in this industry with a $278 used laptop from my bedroom and have been able to break out and succeed because when i was starting i simply shared my story and ideas with my readers through my blog, which most people were really attracted to. Plus a typical wordpress site is SO easy to navigate around.
2. Blogging is authentic.
In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims. However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, by creating a review and adding real time videos showing proof of what he/she is trying to sell. Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. It is word of mouth advertising just that you do it through your videos in your blog. And people will buy from a reliable source where the product has been tested and proven to work.
In Online Marketing, say for example you are doing a blog review on a particular product, you can easily cut a short video or screen shots showing your readers your real time results… Proof is everything and with a blog one can build TRUST easily online.
3. Blogging is free.
Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free webtime is definitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up. Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business.
4. Blogging builds credibility.
As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs. As such, you become an expert on it; as a consequence, more readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs. As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.
5. Blogging Provides F.R.E.E Leads for Life:
I love blogging as a strategy because once i put a piece of content online and rank that piece of content in the front page of search engines, it literally generate free leads daily on complete autopilot. Meaning even while am sleeping my piece of content will still be getting leads to my list. So each piece of blog post i write are like fishing hooks that are thrown in the ocean. The more fishing hooks i have in the water, the more fish i will eventually catch.
Give your business a boost by effectively using blogging as an Internet marketing tool.
