By | Inbound Marketing, Internet Marketing Recruitment, Social Media Marketing | No Comments

Welcome to the second installment of The Blogging Blogs: Part 5. In the last installment, we discussed the importance of choosing your blogging subjects carefully, to ensure that you keep your readership entertained and to make your blog more appealing to a wider audience. As such, we looked at how vital it is to broaden the range of topics that your blog explores and the value that comprehensive planning plays in achieving this.

In today’s installment, I’d like to take a more practical approach and furnish you with some helpful tools that should take some of the hassle out of planning out your blogs; hence, this free guide will take you step-by-step through the process, from initially taking on the responsibility of a blog to having a comprehensive plan for the year.

We’re at Part 5 of The Blogging Blogs already: I can’t believe it! It only feels as if we’ve been talking about blogs for 3 years. I do hope some of you reading this are finding these guides useful but, if you’re not, I’d like to stay deluded if you don’t mind, so let’s pretend they’re fabulous!.

Anyway, enough of this silliness; here we go again…

 

Have You Got Something To Say?

New Site On The Block

I don’t know if anyone’s noticed or not, but we’ve been very busy here at GrowTraffic over the last few days updating the content on our website and it’s not the only change that’s in the pipeline.

As SEO Consultants who specialise in SEO Copywriting and Content Marketing, we’re acutely aware of how important having the best content on your website is but, unfortunately, we’ve been so busy working on our client’s SEO strategies that we’ve never update the GrowTraffic website for decades. Well, it feels like decades anyway.  Read More

By | Content Marketing, Google, Inbound Marketing, Internet Marketing Recruitment, Search Engines, SEO, Social Media Marketing | No Comments

Well it’s another day and another of The Blogging Blogs from the GrowTraffic team (I bet you were hoping we’d got bored by now, weren’t you?) and today we’re taking a look at how you can use your blog to build and enhance your business’s brand and your relationship with your customers. Don’t worry, this is the last one I’ll do for a few days, I’ll give you (and me!) a blogging break…

As we’ve already established over the last few posts, writing a regular blog post on your website can have so many benefits for both your website and your business that it is sometimes hard to understand why everyone isn’t doing it. Admittedly, there are drawbacks to taking on the commitment of a blog, and we will look at these in more detail in later posts, but for now I’d still like to concentrate on the positives and explore another massive reason in support of the humble blog.  Read More

Well here we are again lovely people and it’s Part 3 of GrowTraffic’s The Blogging Blogs; so without further ado let’s get on with it…

 

Blogging and Social Media

Love it or hate it, social media is now an unavoidable part of SEO; if you’ve got a website then you have just got to bite the bullet and get social networking in order to promote it. Now we all know that this is a burden most small to medium business owners can probably do without but there are ways and means of easing the burden (most of which I have already discussed in previous blogs).

One such tool that can be used hand in hand with social media to promote your website is the humble blog, although a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that they can only manage one or the other, not both. Here we’re going to have a look at how you can market more efficiently, so that your blog incorporates your social media and works harder for your SEO.  Read More

My 3 Most Hated Social Media Excuses!

By | Search Engines, Social Media Marketing, Thoughts | One Comment

Obviously, as the expertly perfect and perfectly expert SEO that I am, I’ve been telling all my clients for ages and ages now to make sure they social media to the max in order to get their websites even vaguely near the top of the search engines. Fortunately, most of my clients are already on the same page with me about this, or are at least persuadable on the issue, but there are a few of them who will just not go with me on this one – and you know who you are, naughty clients!!!

Is It Important To Add More Content To Your Website?

By | Content Marketing, Google, Inbound Marketing, Search Engines, SEO | One Comment

Google is on a mission. Yes, I know what you’re thinking; world domination. Although it may seem like that at times, Google’s more laudable raison d’être, so they would have us believe, is to provide the multitudinous users of the World Wide Web with access to the most accurate information and the most unique and original content.
