Blogging for Business

Blogging for Business

Blogging is one of the best things a small business can do to grow exponentially, and here's why: because of the fact that you're adding fresh content regularly, a blog can get much better search engine rankings than a static website would. You've heard of SEO - people pay experts a lot of money to get their sites optimized. Adding a blog to your website does exactly the same thing, but for zero money (very important for solo entrepreneurs on a tight budget)! And best of all you get to create and control the message you put out about your products and services.

Another great reason to blog? To make money! You can either sell products or generate income from advertising. We'll be discussing some great case studies of bloggers that are making a living like this.

In this two-part series I'll take you through starting your own blog using free software, then deciding what to put in it and finally making sure it gets noticed by the blogosphere and beyond!

Our sponsor, MyPRGenie, has an excellent online tool for sending out press releases about your business. I recently used it and two days later landed an interview with the Wall Street Journal Radio's Small Business Report! Here's the link to the podcast. My sound bites are towards the end.
