Blogging is an essential way of reaching out to your target market and should be the foundation of any social media strategy. They provide something of value before asking for anything in return.
A blog (or weblog, from where the name originated) is basically an online journal, discussion or diary located on a website.
Unlike the more traditional media stories and press releases, blogs aim to engage in a more informal way, providing a more authentic form of communication.
Blogs can contain a wide range of information and data, which can also be supported with images, videos and animated GIFs.
Question: What makes a business stand out and engage on social media?
Plenty of businesses make the fatal mistake of being non-human. And it’s surprisingly easy to do.
Being corporate is fine.
Being formal is fine.
However, being a brick wall made purely of corporate messages, sales promotions and business jargon is not. These businesses are using this brick wall to alienate their customers. They’re being the opposite of engaging, and the result is that they push their target market away.
It’s a fact: People buy from people. We all desire the ‘human’ interaction, and social media humanises our business and personal brand.
We MUST follow the golden rule: humanise your brand.
