Too often, a marketer creates a blog, provides content for it, and then sits back, waiting for the hits to appear. Successful blogs, however, require hard work behind the scenes.
In a recent Marketing Smarts podcast, Ian Cleary of RazorSocial discussed how he built his company's blog into an award-winning blog in just six months. Rather than just rely on the blog's existence as a form of traffic generator, he worked furiously and intelligently behind the scenes to produce content that best drew subscribers, engaged readers, and created business for his company.
