One of the questions I get asked almost every single weeks now is, “How much should I pay for someone to write a blog post?” So you realise that blogging for business is important and you want in. It is good for your SEO and a great way of generating new content every week.
Are you finally thinking that now is the time to get on the social media train? Held off for some time but are thinking that you need to start taking advantage of the tools at your disposal? There are a lot of you out there in that boat, I can tell you that much for sure.
Everyone talks about competition in the market place at some point. Who are we up against, who are we trying to beat, who are we comparing ourselves to and so on. I like to look at things a different way, there is no competition – the only competition I have is myself.
For the past 3-4 years now much of the content I have created online has pivoted around blogging. Social media and marketing as well as business has been a topic I have centrally focused on and in particular over the past year I have enjoyed it immensely as there has been more feedback than ever before.
I have been been using WordPress to create websites and blogs for as long as I can remember. Through my teens it was more experimentation and learning, I opened countless websites using the free WordPress hosted servers just so I could learn about CMS and how to do the basics.
Super Bowl 51 takes place this week in Houston and if you follow my Twitter feed or in fact any of my social media you know I am a Patriots fan. I have been watching NFL since 2010 and have become hooked on the sport.
I have been pushing content marketing into my clients faces every single day for the past number of months. Getting them out of the old mindset of marketing and into a new one.
With another week coming to a close and Christmas edging nearer and nearer, it is now time for me to sign off the blog for 2016. Time for a well earned rest and a much needed break before hitting 2017 hard. This year has been a grind, difficult decisions made but when I look back I am happy with every single one of them.
Ted Talks are always a great source of knowledge and entertainment. Each year they never fail to deliver a truly great set of talks. There are talks that I come back to again and again which are years old because they are so entertaining and full of passion and knowledge.
Christmas is a special time of year for many people. Food, drink, family and gifts over the month makes for a jolly month and it is also the perfect time for reflection and planning. It is the perfect time for you to start planning for the year ahead.
