Blogging and sending an email newsletter are great tools for today’s small business entrepreneur to utilize in building their business. It can be challenging to find the time to fit these tools into your work schedule but if you don’t your business can be behind in the times and you don’t want to be left behind.
This weeks #HandmadeChat was on Content Ideas for Your Newsletter and Blog and I had the pleasure to facilitate. I never saw an hour go by so fast. Here are a few of the questions and answers that passed through the hour. Be sure to read the whole transcript for all the responses.
Q1 IS IT IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO PUBLISH BLOG POSTS AND NEWSLETTERS REGULARLY? WHY OR WHY NOT?
A1 Donna DeRosa shared: Yes, for SEO purposes. The more the publish, the higher your ranking with google, etc.
Q2 HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE YOUR PUBLICATION IDEAS? DO YOU HAVE AN EDITORIAL CALENDAR? SHOULD YOU?
A2 Mary Humphrey shared: I chart out topics. I try to calendar them by month, by topic, etc…
Q5 DO YOU SHARE PERSONAL LIFE EVENTS IN YOUR NEWSLETTER OR BLOG? HOW DO YOU DRAW THE “PERSONAL LIFE” LINE?
A5 Melissa Rivera shared: I use personal if relevant to my business. I don’t share everything because private is private.
If you are a 21st century entrepreneur you have to take hold of blogging and writing content for a newsletter. It takes time and you have to make the time for it. Don’t wait to get started. Get started now ….at your own pace.
