I don’t remember when I first heard the word blog or blogging, however, I do remember back then it was a ‘weblog’ before it was truncated to blog and I remember it was something that people did in their spare time and was something of questionable value.

More and more, traditional marketing strategies are either going out the window or being saved for the big boys.

You might say I should have better things to do with my life, but for the last few years I’ve been blogging about why content is king. It’s been the mantra of we SEO copywriters and content marketers for ages now, despite the intermittent prophecies that the content bubble is about to burst (it might, by the way, but I think we’re safe for now). But is it still true that content is king?
Happy New Year!
Having not written a GT blog for some considerable time, I have now been given the honour of writing our first blog of 2018 – and what an honour that is! I know, you’re jealous. I would be too.
And so, as it’s the start of a shiny new year and we’re all feeling positive and looking forward to all the good things that lie ahead (come on; it’s only the second week of January…we’re still positive!), the GT team are going to take it in turns to make some predictions on what this year may have in store for each of our areas of expertise. I know, the world and his dog are doing it, just bear with us…we need the keywords! 😉
