e-book-300x300

Would you like to spend time on your business not in it, freeing up your time to do the things you are really good at rather than those you struggle with or just plain don’t float your boat? Then it’s time to look at outsourcing.

In an age where working from home and flexible working is on-trend and fast becoming a way of life, more and more businesses are cottoning onto the fact that outsourcing can be a key element of any business of any size, from a one-man band to a multi-site corporation.

5 Distractions Which Put Paid To Workplace Productivity – GUEST POST on Brand Republic & PR Week

For most of us, procrastination or a predilection to distraction tends to stem from a fear of failure, a lack of prioritisation and time management or out of boredom or a loss of concentration.

Blogging No-Brainers: How Your Followers Stay Your Biggest Fans!

blogging no brainersWhy do you blog? To produce content which will drive traffic back to you website? To be seen as an industry authority? To build connections or solidify existing relationships? Whatever your motivation, here are some goals you should be adhering to for blogging success:

  • Don’t hide your light under a bushel! Instead of competing with others, don’t be afraid to be yourself. An original and authentic voice is ultimately what will make your voice heard. By being somebody who people feel they want to get to know, your business or services will become of interest to them. 
  • Reader engagement is a litmus test for how valuable readers rate your content. Followers of your blog need to feel enthused, interested by and more knowledgeable as a result of reading your posts and they will demonstrate this by commenting on and sharing your content to their own Social Media channels. This is also how search engines measure your social proof and ultimately rank you higher in online searches. 
  • Content is King! The better quality your blog post or webpage(s), the higher your brand or business will appear in search engine results. 

Whatever your motivation for blogging, keep the end-user in mind. It’s all about valuable exchanges and reciprocity – they’ll make the effort if you do.

The Three Musketeers of Digital Marketing: Content (Writing), Search (Engine Optimisation) & (Media Optimisation)

The three musketeers of digital marketingWhilst each functions independently of the others online, they cannot do so effectively in the context of digital marketing.

In the words of Seth Godin, “Content Marketing is the Only Marketing Left”. In other words, businesses are what they share because we are all master marketeers and publishers of our own online content, THE pivotal role in our online presence and visibility. In the digital age, it simply isn’t enough to use SEO in order to be found easily online and ranked highly in Google search results. The more prolific and active you are online, i.e. the more content you post, be it through your blog, Facebook, LinkedIn or other Social Media profile, the greater your website presence providing that you are producing content that followers deem valuable enough to engage with and share.

If we’ve ever had a conversation about digital marketing, website development, Social Media marketing, and Search Engine Optimisation, you’ll know that I’m a staunch advocate of the Three Musketeers of Digital Marketing: Content, Search and Social, in every internet marketing campaign. Which, when they are combined, produce a heady mixture of blog and website traffic, Social Media reach and engagement and ultimately a Return on Investment (ROI). Continue reading
