These are the Reasons Why Blogging is the New Internet Marketing Tool.........
April 1, 2007 2:08pm CST
Blogging is a Concept that started in Late 90s. It used to be a way to comment an existing webpage, an opoutunity forvisitors and readers to react or voice out one's opinion on the said page. What started as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun. As it continues to move forward, online advertising has tapped into the blog's potential. Here are the reasons why you should use Blogging as an internet Marketing Tool. * Blogging is simple. The simplest way to get your piece on the net is through blogging. No skills are necessary, an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse. It's like having a virtual piece of paper and you just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles come out and entice your reader to also try your product. If you have a PC and Internet connection (who doesn't now a days?) then you can blog and advertise. * Blogging is authentic. In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoter's claims. However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising. Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. You definitely want to buy a tried and tested product. * Blogging is free. Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free webtime is difinitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up. Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business. * Blogging builds credibility. As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or Industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs. As such, you become an expert on it; as a consequence, more readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs. As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site. * Blogging builds your market. Unless you are a Hollywood star, chances are, onlyo your Mom reads your posts. Mom has a lot of friends, so she lets her friends know interesting your blog site it. But you need not depend on Mom to increase your readership base. Look into the follwoing ways to build your market through blogging: # by using your email: Today, blogging is overcoming the email's popularity in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding a market. In this age of speed and quick access, logging in and downloading email is simply taking longer than clicking into a blog site. Let them explore your site by using a short email message as teaser to your blog site. if your email is on an entirely different subject, use your email signature to give a link to the site. # By using subscription: An easy way to get your readers email is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blogsite. Keep some exclusive information for your sub scribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their email address. Just be responsible in using their email address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are not a spammer. # By understanding your readers: Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their profile and advertising preferences. Ask consumers to give you feedback on a post, an ad link, or a trial that you shared. In this way, it is like interviewing your readers without the commitment and instrusion of a face to face interview. # By joining a Blog Network: A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc. Consumers find credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers about a single subject. Clearly, more bloggers are better than one. # By using RSS: RSS is the fastest growing technology on the Internet today. As such, having RSS feeds to your blog is definitely another means of generating awareness for your readership base. Having a variety of feeds can add interest to your Blog site. Give your business a boost by effectively using Blogging as an Internet Marketing Tool. Anyway I want to stop it now. I hope this information is enough to learn something about the Blogs. I invite comments and discussions about this matter. And finally I request all of you to give me a rating (+ or -). Thank you very much for your time. T.Nagaraju CEO - www.whatyouseek.info

You are right it is really some good information about blogging and must have taken a lot of time.It is also very frustrating if nobody responds to a discussion in which one gives so much effort.Well I think the discussion is too long for the members who are mostly here for money making.Thats why they like to choose discussions where they can reply easily and without spending much time.I hope the discussion will be read by other members too and will soon get many more responses.
