B2B Blogging: It's More Than Just “Publish” - Business 2 Community | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Building a distribution strategy for your blog will give your blog post a longer shelf life past the publish date. Once you get a handle of distributing content across owned channels (e.g. company newsletter, social media, etc.), look to third party platforms like Reddit, Quora and industry specific forums to also re-purpose your content on.

The system of money creation is, for the most part, unquestioned and invisible to academic analysis.
