10 Content Marketing Goals Worth Pursuing

10 Content Marketing Goals Worth Pursuing | Quick Social Media | Scoop.it

Content is the new buzzword, but content alone has no magical powers. It won't transform your business or get you where you need to go ... until you add one thing... Which? It's what you'll find in this excellent post with ten goals to follow! [note Martin Gysler]

 

Ever wonder why content marketing works so well for some businesses … and doesn’t seem to do anything at all for others?

 

Curious about why some content that seems great doesn’t do anything to build the business?

 

“Content is king” has been an online cliché for years now, but it’s not true. It’s never been true.

 

Content all by itself — even terrific content — is just content.

 

It may be entertaining. It may be educational. It may contain the secret to world peace and fresh, minty breath, all rolled into one.

 

But it has no magical powers. It won’t transform your business or get you where you need to go, until you add one thing …

Starting A Blog in 2012? Avoid These 7 New Blogger Blunders

Starting A Blog in 2012? Avoid These 7 New Blogger Blunders | Quick Social Media | Scoop.it

Are you thinking of starting a blog in 2012, or making significant changes to your old one?

 

One thing that you should always be 100% clear on is your purpose of writing. Is it to start a personal blog where you don’t really care if you have a total readership of 9 or is it to have a blog that you want to monetize at some point.

 

If you belong to the former camp, then do as you please, and skip this post. If not, read on.

 

1. Making Your Blog All About You

 

Your blog is not an online journal. Although it might feel like the perfect place to let everything out, be careful about what you write. Especially, when you have aims of making money from it.

 

Many people get offended at this advice. They indignantly retort that they are writing for their friends and family only. If that is your intent – and it is perfectly fine – go ahead but keep this in mind it would be fairly hard if not impossible to reach wider audiences with a personal blog...
