It’s not every day that you’ll be at your peak, and that’s no cause for alarm, although you should be if you’re constantly not at your best. Not being at our peak means that we’re not able to deliver quality work or services and obviously that has some serious and costly consequences. At this point, we are often not at the best state of mind and we probably end up making the wrong decisions.
Publishing great content can lead to profound results for entrepreneurs, startups, and companies of all sizes.
Blogging is today’s trend in the online world. Some people think that creating a blog is difficult, but it is not! Blog creation is easy. In fact, it has been one of the easiest things to do online for decades now. It is also made easier today because of the presence of different blog-building tools.
Could you spear $1 (or more?) A close friend of mine, Martin Lindeskog, develops a new book providing “Ideas And Notions About The Second Most Popular Beverage In The World” and needs your support.
The market is not an easy place to be! Especially so, for small business owners, need to enhance visibility, ideas, and tools to become known to their niche market! This is the main idea I try to convey to a friend of mine (a newbie entrepreneur in the education market) having no marketing knowledge at all and wanted more information for small business marketing.
In the business world, it is impossible to always get what you need, but you can make your arguments more convincing to move closer to this kind of mightiness. Too often, leaders underestimate the power of email communication and strong motivating speeches composed wisely. However, written word is still a great tool of communication, especially in the sphere of leadership. After all, leaders do not have enough time and energy to talk to every consumer, employee or partner personally and there is nothing left but reaching these people via email.
When I start writing for the web or journaling (around 1994 if I remember correctly) the term blog was not as widespread as it is today. The infrastructures for web were very expensive to use on a personal base and I didn’t have a domain on my own (this happens, later on!) I wrote for company purposes and I wrote posts, newsletters, and information for my company, for products or services of interest or for the projects I managed, but rarely personal reflections and things I’d like to share.
I am blogging for more than 3 years now and I have written more than 255 original posts in my site (besides my other contribution as a guest poster in other sites). That means that I (as many bloggers) have to accumulate a lot of content on my site that can be utilized in various ways and provide more value to the users. The name of the game is the continuous value provision to the audience you have chosen to serve, and content repurpose can serve this purpose in a grand way!
“Blogging is a discipline“! That was the point of argument with a friend of mine, an entrepreneur in spirit and practice, who argued that blogging is a side activity, at best, for entrepreneurs. His main point was that a businessperson should not do a lot of things and shouldn’t scatter his/her resources in many levels. My position was clearer: blogging is a discipline and a basic function in any entrepreneurship venture!
