Savvy business owners and marketers know that business blogging is an essential part of a modern digital marketing strategy. So why does it often fall to the bottom of the priority list?
Join us for this new class taught by professional blogger and online marketing expert Wendy Kam Marcy. You'll discover exactly what blogging and content marketing can do for your business or organization and how to create your own unique voice in a crowded space. Learn the secrets of writing content that will attract new business, and setting up an editorial schedule that is actually manageable. Understand how to recruit and work with the best guest bloggers and top influencers, and how to host contests and giveaways. And finally, discover how to measure your blog's performance, so you know what's working as you blog your way to business success.
