Blogging: Inexpensive and Effective Marketing
Please visit our website to read the full articleUnless you're writing a blog as a personal journal, there is little point in laboring over your blog posts if you don't have any readers.

The most difficult aspect of blogging when you're just starting out is learning how to attract readers - and then if you're hoping to earn income from your efforts the challenges get even bigger!

Since many bloggers are using their blogs to attract internet traffic and hopefully send them on to their website (where products or services are actually sold), this article will give you ideas for leveraging the power of your blog as an inexpensive, but effective marketing medium.

Marketing Tip:  Define You Email Marketing Plan
Visit eWomen Network website
It is important to define a plan, a road map, to follow before you start your Email Marketing campaigns. You wouldn't start on a long journey without a map & a plan in place. Similar when it comes to Email Marketing. Here are five areas to help you with your plan:
  1. Define your goals -  Are you trying to motivate purchases, reinforce your brand, bring visitors back to visit your site, store or office, cue the reading of an article, prompt requests for more information, increase attendance for an event, obtain donations, appointments or sign ups for a service?
  2. Define your audience -  Are you targeting a segment of your customer base or your entire house list? What are the needs, wants, and interests of those on your list? What is important to them? What will motivate them to take action?
  3. Define your message -  Engage your recipients and deliver on their needs. Use what you know about recipients to determine how, and in what order, to describe and illustrate the benefits of your offer.
