Facebook makes you pay to play, Twitter is all over the place and LinkedIn ads are super expensive. So, how do you get your brand, sales messages and your words of wisdom out there, week in, week out in the most cost-effective way?
"The simple answer is by starting a blog!"
But a word of warning! It can take you many hours each week to get right. You need to write your blog post, check it, edit it, put in all the bells and whistles, check it again, choose a licensed image to go with it (never just download one from Google!), check it once more just to be sure, publish it, share it, share it, share it again then even send it to your mailing list. That could take you between 7 and 10 hours of your valuable time each week to do all that; sounds like a lot of hard work, doesn't it?
I'd like to propose a much simpler alternative. It's Saturday night and you're on the sofa watching TV. Suddenly, you get inspired and you drop your raw thoughts into an email and press send ... then pour yourself another glass of wine and get on with your weekend, knowing that it'll all be taken care of for you.
It's a simple equation ... if you do it, then it could take you hours and hours of your valuable time each week. If we do it for you, then it'll take you at most, 20 minutes. If you think of it in terms of your own hourly rate, it's a bit of a no-brainer to get us to do it for you, isn't it?
With one of our custom blogs, you can be involved as much or as little as you wish, and just like the majority of our clients, you'll probably be at the 'little' end of the involvement scale because you need to be out there supporting your own clients, completing projects, and earning money, don't you?
If you're wondering what you get for your £99 per month then here's the package:
A blog on our custom platform with your branding and social channels hooked in
Weekly editing of your 'raw thoughts' and the creation of a finished, polished blog post (that's 4 x blog posts per month!)
A properly licensed image for each blog post
An AMP version of each blog post for mobile Google ranking
A dashboard to check your visitor statistics and to share out your blog posts
A free domain name if you need it, renewed each year for free as well
blog.yourdomain.com if you prefer to work closely with your existing website
Free SSL for life (makes your blog SEO friendly with HTTPS)
Free support whenever you need it
All this for just £99 per month!
There's no long contract either. To bed in your new blog, you'll need to give us six months and after that, it's just a case of pay for a month, get a month's worth of services from us with just a month's notice to quit.
"Oh, and right now, there's no VAT to pay either!"
I've always believed that blogging is the very heart of your perfect online marketing channel and after publishing over 5,000 blog posts for our clients over the past few years, I still hold that to be true!
Until next time ...
