Marketing Efficiency – Why you should take time to blog…

In this ever increasing world of innovation, technology and social media there are many options for business owners and marketers to use for promoting their business, products and services.

Social Media Marketing 

Social media is a very popular medium for doing this but there are so many social media channels that it can be difficult to choose which ones to use and how much time to spend on each one.

Social Media Marketing issues

There are also issues with login in and out of all of the social media channels and accounts that you have which can also be time consuming and problematic.

And worse still, all of this is set against a back drop of hyper competitiveness for most businesses, especially those in saturated markets where the need for optimal operational efficiency grows greater and greater each day.

Social Media Automation

Many people turn to social media automation tools such as Buffer and Hootsuite to help them improve their marketing efficiency and I myself have done this in the past and still use them from time to time, but I have found blogging to be a much better way.

Social media automation tools cost, and usually have some sort of limiting factors to your posting and scheduling.  There are also large steps ups from a small business user to a large agency users with very little in between for the business that is rapidly expanding and diversifying and expanding their social media portfolio but certainly not of Agency size and budget (just yet).

Also social media automations tools are just that, social media tools and marketing is a lot more than just Social Media Marketing.

So the reason why I blog, and why I teach blogging and recommend blogging to the world with lots of blogging articles including this, “why you should take time to blog” article is because I find it to be the best Social Media automation tool around but it comes with so many more marketing benefits and additional marketing efficiency benefits.

Blogging Platforms

Before I cover the so much more, I need to explain something in a little more detail.  Not all blogging platforms are the same and provide the same marketing and marketing efficiency benefits. I have tried tumblr, blogger and WordPress as well as other web design and build platforms that have built in blogging platforms and as yet, I have only found WordPress to have a built in social media automation feature – social sharer.

Therefore the reason I use WordPress and recommend WordPress and in fact only build websites using WordPress is for the social media automation feature and built in marketing efficiencies.

The social media sharer or automatic post and share feature saves time.  With other blogging platforms you have to post your content,  grab the link and share it around your social media universe whilst creating posts and titles etc. which can be quite time consuming, maybe even taking up half an hour or so per post.

Posting the same content via WordPress which is already linked and set up to all of your social media universe (or a large portion of it) and automatically creates the posts and titles can in comparison take just a few minutes.

People say to me “that they can’t find the time to post” but I say; “I can’t find the time not to post”.

Some marketing efficiency and social media automation has been covered but what are the other marketing benefits I hear you cry?

Free Social Media Automation!

Well we already covered the fact that Social Media Automation tools cost and one of the great things about blogs, especially WordPress blogs, is that they don’t. They all have free versions although do have paid for options as well.

Extra Google Traffic Benefits

The other great things about blogs is that you post the content on to the internet and get SEO and Keyword benefits that you just wouldn’t get with social media automation.

Website Benefits – SEO

If posting on a website you improve your own ranking in the search engines and spread of keywords and content that you can get found for and if posting on a deprecate blog site you get to build up the value and domain authority of a completely separate domain.

Join the Largest Blogging Community in the World and be inspired and build contacts…

Also if blogging on WordPress you are also part of their global blogging network, the largest in the world and can follow and take inspiration from this blogger network or blogger community as well as network with these other bloggers and build your own following!

Summary

So there we have it, to improve on Social Media Automation, to gain many additional marketing benefits and to improve on the marketing efficiency of your business are the reasons why I blog and the reasons why I recommend that all business owners or marketers should take the time to blog.

How to Be Successful at Anything You Do – 3 Steps (2 min read)

img_3394

One of the things I see fairly often is people who want to change or accomplish something but won’t because of their own self doubt. Yet, they look at others who they view successful as humans who are made of some supernatural “stuff” when that’s just not the case.

I should know because I struggled with the same thing. I viewed those who were in a higher position, those with higher grades and those with more accomplishments as people who are just born better. But as time went on, I became “successful” in several ways to others and realize that some view me the same way when that is not the case.

People who accomplish great things in a moral fashion are often not super natural humans. In fact, they may not even be the smartest or fastest at what they are doing.

What separates them from the crowd is often these three things that you can apply to your life:

1. Research. Figure out what you want to do and why. Begin with what you know and what questions you have. Sometimes, this means asking around and other times it means going online. Do all you can to keep learning.

2. Begin Wherever You Can. Personally, I think this is one of the reasons that goals remain unmet. Most of the time, you will not start in the areas that you want. What I mean is that if you want to become an author, you may not start out with traditional publishing. Maybe time and money restricts you from doing this. Maybe you turn to blogging as a means to get you’re foot in the door and work your way up from there.

3. Put Your all Into Whatever You are Doing no Matter What Anyone Says: More than not, this the defining factor. In fact, I believe this is one of the strongest factors (outside of the grace of God) that I’ve been able to accomplish more than initially thought.

If everyone works from 9-5 before leaving for drinks, try coming in at 8-6. Maybe even try talking to people who you don’t normally conversate with or do things outside of your job description.

Instead of saying “I don’t get paid enough to do that,” try to offer doing the very task that others won’t. If you do this, I guarantee you will stand out of the crowd and go farther than you thought possible.

So what do you need to do in order to meet your goals? I’d love to talk to you below. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them for me to answer in a future post!
