I've been thing about writing and commenting online lately....Commenting and posting has obvious marketing value, but if the conversation offers little consequence to the larger efforts of business and society, then I consider whether to invest a comment. Often, I’d rather be quiet than enter the conversation wading pool.
Give or Conduct Interviews – A really awesome website is BlogTalkRadio.com, go check out what type of shows are there that your target market might listen to and then send the owner of the show your information and offer to be a guest. Oftentimes, offering a premium to give listeners is highly appreciated. In addition, you can start your own BlogTalkRadio.com show and interview other people or simply do a show directed at your target market. Interviews are a powerful tool for both bloggers and other content creators alike.

SEO is changing as a practice but this is a good thing and the opportunity for success has never been greater; it just takes long term commitment now....Clever use of new tools and apps is growing in importance so staying ahead of the curve on technological developments is also important to do. This may mean having an element of link building/blogger outreach automated at an early stage in the process so that it can be scaled efficiently and then all follow ups handled manually as they will need a personal touch. Or it may mean simply putting tools such as Rapportive and Boomerang to use in Gmail to make your link outreach more efficient.

The very first thing is to find out the approximate set of keywords your target customers are likely to use. This can be done by using any keyword research tools. As of now, the most widely used is Google Keyword research tool.

Basic Blog Tips – Back in 2011 when The Annoying Life was just beginning to take off and build up it’s small community I had to get sound blogging advice and tips from somewhere, so I usually smartened up on my blogging skills at Basic Blog Tips. The name Basic Blog Tips is what really drew me to this blog because I was a complete WordPress newbie back then (about 5-6 months ago from now), so I felt really comfortable with basic blog tips and they really helped The Annoying Life grow to what it has become today. Basic Blog Tips is managed by Ileane. Ileane is a very wonderful and charismatic blogger who is very outgoing and nice. I encourage all readers of The Annoying Life who are bloggers to follow Ileane on Twitter and subscribe her blog, Basic Blog Tips. Here’s her Facebook page for further value.
