“Blogging is a fad!”
“Only unemployed geeks and teenagers blog!”
“My customers don’t read blogs!”
Have you heard these (and other lies) related to blogging? What is the truth about using blogging for marketing, PR and communication? What makes a blog work, and what successful blogs are out there today?
Whether you are an active blogger trying to convince your company to blog, or someone in the bleachers wondering what Kool-Aid everyone is drinking, you undoubtedly have questions and concerns about blogging.
In this 90-minute virtual seminar, Jeremy Wright will get into the nitty-gritty of blogging. Examining specific case studies, laying out best practices and providing a framework for how blogs can fit into your marketing mix, Jeremy will help you understand not only what blogs are and how they should be used — but also what works, what doesn’t, and why.
