Blogging is one of the many facets of an internet marketing strategy. Gone are those days when blogs are mainly journals for it has evolved in so many ways immeasurable and I don’t see it fading in the limelight not even in the future years. Like the overused saying goes and let me drag it again for the sake of this post and I quote,
“Many are called but few are chosen. “
Hundreds of thousands of people can start off a blog but only a few surpasses the burn out period while only a handful becomes successful and because blogging is becoming main stream, various forms of media has plunged into the bandwagon and decided to engage in this hardcore internet written media.
Earning via blogs is not a lucrative scheme that promises overnight success and neither does a profitable business in the real world. It takes time, effort and tons of patience. But why do most blogs is left abandoned right before they had the traffic and revenue? There could be a lot of reasons behind this but one of the main reasons I could think of is the lack of strategic approach in order to achieve specific goals.
Whether you are running a blog for personal profit or for business boost, it’s imperative that you know some proven techniques that will help you along the way to increase your online presence and ROI.
Uncovering a great deal of information from search marketing as a key to customer acquisition, conversion, and retention through proper site optimization (measured closely by web analytics to step up a notch one’s online presence) can all be revealed in the upcoming Search Engine Marketing Conference (SEMCON) slated in October 1-2, 2009 to be held at the Grand Ball of Hotel Intercontinental in Makati City, Philippines.
SEMCON is primarily designed for interactive & digital marketers, brand marketers, webmasters, bloggers, and those involved in Internet marketing and for every soul who’s brave enough to face the challenges of the Internet with a dream of putting their mark in this highly congested Web 2.0 world.
As a struggling blogger with high hopes of getting into the middle of action to gain offline presence, this event is something to be part of. Adsense is still foreign to me and reaching a $100 could take almost forever, affiliate marketing is something I can only thought of earning more than cost-per-click ads but the chances are down slope while link popularity and web site traffic is still a work in progress.
I’m not alone in the same situation but to be part of the upcoming SEMCON could go a long way. I may or may not be able to attend the event because I’m only vying for the free tickets which I hope I could win. If you want to take a stab at this chance, head on to Yugatech’s blog post Free Passes to SemCon 2009 or visit IMVSolutions.com for more information.
Update: This post didn’t win the taste of the organizers maybe because I’m not into the Search Engine Marketing Business and secondly, I’m not a famous blogger locally and lastly because I didn’t have my post optimized for Google. I’m not really expecting to win, I’m just here to spread the word.
