How to market yourself with a blog

If you are an entrepreneur, and you like writing, blogging could help grow your business. The Boston Globe published a set of “why blog” tips.

Here’s one (of several) for entrepreneurs:

“5. Blogging makes self-employment easier.

You can’t make it on your own unless you’re good at selling yourself. One of the most cost-effective and efficient ways of marketing yourself is with a blog. When someone searches for your product or service, make sure your blog comes up first.

Curt Rosengren, a career coach, periodically Googles ”career passion” — words he thinks are most important to his business — just to make sure his blog comes up high on the list. He estimates that his blog generates at least half of his coaching business.” More here.

Sometime Friday, 4.21.06, a new show, “How to market your business with a blog-1” should be live on the “Talking about Your Great Thing” Podcast. This one shows where and how to set one up. It takes time and interest, not money.

This is the first part of the teleseminar I did with the CEO of Jiggerbug, Ryan Azevedo, about 10 days ago. They’re like Netflix, but for for CDs. And they even have my audio books for rent. 🙂

Ryan’s finishing a little ebook on blogging and how to use it to help market yourself, and it will be available on the house on this blog, as soon as it is.
