5 Things that Blogging Does for you, 4 Things that a poor process doesn't | Minneapolis Inbound Marketing
This list is for true internet marketers. The key here is targeting and doing it well. If you communicate with your target market well, Google will reward you with higher rankings and greater visibility.
- Know who you are targeting, specifically what they need to address their problem, their pain (a core element of inbound marketing).
- Develop a persona that represents your audience. Dig deep into what triggers positive responses, buying behaviors, sharing of information (Social media).
- Be the Expert for solving your target markets problems, on their terms / schedule, can't get to this unless you test, improve, test some more.
- Ask for comments in your blog post & start a conversation, nurture every one (be vulnerable, people want 'real').
- Use social networks to listen and see what people want to talk about, dig in and be a great listener first.
Reality here is that the content is not much different than years ago, just how it is done (process) has changed.
Blogs are the gateway to SEO and connection with your targeted audience.
Blogging is not easy, it takes effort on a regular basis. I know, I blog a lot more for my clients than I do for my own site. You have to sit down and put together meaningful content.
I have seen a few agencies (here in town) try to make this a function that is standardized and something checked off by an hourly employee. Well, that gets you blog postings indeed. What it doesn't get you:
- Proper SEO technique (measured by today's search engine expectations).
- Valued content that is meaningful to the target market
- Real connection / conversation with an audience that is capable of being a paying customer.
- Respected as an authority within your specific field
Are there many online marketers here in the Minneapolis area? Absolutely. There are good ones and great ones, it all comes down to 'fit' within your situation / company. I like to focus on being transparent, business minded with goals & objectives towards the bottom line. I also know that being accountable is huge, not many want to be vulnerable, well it's reality and it builds great relationships.
