Posted by Dean Moothart

May 15, 2018

Is a blog a marketing tool or a sales tactic? The answer is yes. A blog that’s a forum for educational content that resonates with your target personas is both. Blogging has long been identified as a productive marketing tool.

December 28, 2017

“They” say a picture is worth 1,000 words. As a content manager with a marketing background, I started thinking about this. Who is “they,” and how do “they” know? Even more… if a picture REALLY is worth 1,000 words, then that picture is worth the investment, so why don’t more brands invest in great pictures?

By nature, humans are very visual. When processing visuals, we use 30% of our brains, and yet we only use 8% for touch and 3% for hearing.

Blogging, in and of itself, is not the solution to all your marketing objectives. An effective blog requires a well-thought-out content strategy and disciplined execution. The subject matter of the content that you write and publish does matter. It’s the content that dictates the success of your blog.
