I am glad to say that I am finally a blogger. It’s just been a day since I started my blogging endeavors, but that was just a start! I had heard so much about blogging all these years but I never really got down to actually create my own blog. I am glad that I finally took the plunge.
I am not much of a writer before this, but this class has been a revelation to me. My eyes have been opened to the powerful marketing tool of a blog. All this time, I thought of a blog is more as “online diary”. I assumed that all it could be used for is to write about personal thoughts and feelings and post it for the world to see. I did not realize that it could be used as a very effective tool for content marketing. So many times I have come across people who have a brilliant new product, book, startup and yet have not enough people noticing it. One of my friends, in fact, has been working on a great app for the past year and a half and has been using other social media like Facebook and Twitter but with no real quantitative traffic to his app website. After speaking to Prof. Bill Belew, I understood how creating a blog for this app could do wonders and would lead to a real traffic to his website and, in turn, help him brand his product.
After this session, I have learned how important blogging is and how it can be used for effectively marketing. I am now aware of the different ways that a blog can be used for various marketing techniques like content marketing, inbound marketing and search engine marketing and can lead to generating revenue for the blogger. I am very excited to start using this tool extensively and learn how to effectively create a brand for my blog.
My goals for next week is to write as many articles as I can and try and understand the correct usage of keywords and titles in my blog. I aim to learn about how to blogs with effective titles which can be search engine optimized. My blog is aimed to be a guide for anyone traveling around Bay Area. I will start writing more posts pertaining to that and learn how to start effectively creating more content in my blog.
